"There is not enough evidence available on which to base a conclusion about why a male develops baldness. A combination of genetic, hormonal and environmental factors may combine to make a man bald or not. A number of genes have been identified as being likely candidates but none of them have yet been confirmed. HLA genes have also been implicated as being of importance. It would not be possible for us to know for certain if androgens are the cause.\n" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"About 1.3 million U.S. children between the ages of 2–17 get Alopecia. Also one in 18 men gets Alopecia and a high proportion of baldness is reported to be caused by poor health." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Among the many kinds of hair removal used by people, there are shampoos, lotions, sprays, shampoos, and combs that each help to remove particular types of hair. In shampoos, the active ingredient is often sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)—a surfactant that combines with the keratin and sebum in the hair to form lather (soap) and helps to loosen the hair shaft; the main cosmetic ingredient in shampoos is the sodium or ammonium lauroyl sulfate (LAS), which works by binding the keratin and sebum on the hair." - Anonymous Online Contributor

"The age of an individual with androgenic alopecia typically falls between 50 and 75 years of age; this is comparable to the average age of onset of androgenic alopecia in individuals with other hair-associated disorders, i.e., age at onset with female pattern hair loss in women and age at onset with hair color alterations in men." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"We have demonstrated that combining paxman orbis scalp with any other treatment, in addition to having a positive effect on folliculitis, also increases hair growth." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Results from a recent clinical trial shows no difference in the mean skin temperature between the paxman eye cream and saline drops over 12 hr in adults. This is reassuring as it will reassure patients about the cosmetic results of paxman or other similar herbal creams. We conclude topical application of paxman, which is a herbal cream and therefore not a drug will not be effective for cooling scalp or eyelids in this population of patients. The study also finds that the mean corneal temperature was higher when patients used paxman (9ºC) as compared to saline (8ºC) by 1ºC. It is therefore recommended that paxman or other similar herbal creams be only used with care at the lowest possible tolerable skin temperature." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The treatment of scalp cooler with paxman orbis scalp has not shown any benefits over a placebo. Therefore, if cooling is of benefit treatment must be tailored to suit a patient’s individual clinical condition." - Anonymous Online Contributor
