Scientists believe they may have discovered a cure for baldness with an experimental drug originally created to treat brittle bone disease.

A new drug could ease the distress of men and women who suffer from baldness, according to researchers from The University of Manchester's Centre for Dermatology Research.

The researchers stated that a clinical trial was the next necessary step to assess whether the drug could be safe and effective to use on hair loss patients.

Currently, there are only two drugs, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), available for the treatment of hair loss - minoxidil and finasteride.

Now only two drugs (minoxidil and finasteride) are available for treatment of androgenetic alopecia, however both have moderate side effects and often produce disappointing results.

And researchers found it also inhibited a protein, SFRP1, that blocks a molecular pathway, WNT, vital for the growth of many tissues, including hair.

In lab experiments the osteoporosis drug had a dramatic effect on donated follicles, stimulating them to sprout growing hairs. The results were published in the journal PLOS Biology.

Before this, the scientists have worked on the cyclosporine A. It finds its use to prevent the organ rejection in the organ transplant patients.

Dr Hawkshaw said there are no known side-effects of the bone drug.

A project by The University of Manchester's Centre for Dermatology Research in England began work by examining an immunosuppressive drug that had always been known to cause hair growth as a side effect.

However, because of its side effects CsA would be quite unsuitable as a baldness treatment.

But they could soon have the choice between being bald or having a thick thatch of hair, as scientists claim they might have found a cure for male pattern baldness. and people could see results within DAYS. However, they decided not to go ahead with its application as a hair growth stimulator owing to its other side effects.

This leaves hair transplant surgery as the only reliable option, until now. The research concludes the active switching of the hair follicles to the hair growth phase.
