A cure for baldness may be available on the market sooner than previously thought after a breakthrough in negotiations between scientists and drugs companies. Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania believe they have discovered the reason for baldness, an enzyme which shuts down hair follicles.

Please, please hurry !!!!!
You know, I’d guess that there are at least a million ailments that should be tackled before the scientist concern themselves with baldness.
Let me see if I have this right .... it worked in the laboratory with mice ... so I need to decide whether to remain bald or to grow mouse hair on my head ?
The real crapper will be if they come out with a cure but only for babies in the womb...current guys are SOL. That would suck a big one.
I've been lucky to have a full head of hair but just starting to get some small patches of back hair...Hate it. My gf is getting tired of shaving it off for me every week.
Lazer treatments planned for this fall.
Then again, the previous generation was able to solve William Shatner’s issues. Hmmm, maybe this conundrum is related to that fact that it was A F***ING TV SHOW!
They already have Rogaine.
It was just humor..lighten up.
I’ve been as bald as Picard since I was 23. It’d be interesting to have hair again.
My remark was intended to be funny too (I had a smile and a chuckle as I wrote it) so apologies offered if necessary. I was thinking of Shatner’s famous Trekker Convention bit on Saturday Night Live.
Why do research on baldness over illnesses? That is simple, people with disposable income are willing to pay for it. That it is not covered by insurance ensures that it won’t become a political football.
I’m not sure that FrogDad would partake, but our daughter sure as hell would.
She just turned 43 and has been getting thinner on top for about 5 years, now.
My mother and grandmother both have/had very thin hair, too. Fortunately, mine is still thick.
Women would be big time users of this procedure!
“The years passed, mankind became stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes the genetic engineering would correct this trend in evolution, but sadly the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.” - Idiocracy
I mean, how old are you people? What have you done with yourselves?
You, you must be almost 30... have you ever kissed a girl?
I didn't think so! There's a whole world out there! When I was your age, I didn't watch television! I LIVED! So... move out of your parent's basements! And get your own apartments and GROW THE HELL UP! I mean, it's just a TV show dammit, IT'S JUST A TV SHOW!

Patrick Stewart was asked about this on a talk show, way back when. he said that in the 25th century, people had come to not care about whether or not someone was bald.
if this wasn't the case, and we as a society had advanced to the point where we could transform any such things... all women would be walking around with trout pout, p0rn boobs, kardashian-butts, and rail thin. men would be 6 feet tall, thick afro's, 2% body fat, and 12" ... err.. well, you get the point.
of course, the people that would do that would be sexual beings with little to no intellectual capacity.
If they can genetically cure loss of hair , they should be able to genetically cure Homosexualism.
LMAO I bet the fruits will go nuts if that happened.
Viagra was initially studied for use in hypertension and angina and not ED. The drug had little effect on those conditions but that it could induce marked penile erections.
I suspect if there is a cure for baldness it will come out the same way..maybe that is how they found this supposed "cure"..trying to find a cure for something else and just saw what happened to hair on mice.
Why not promote it?
Do they have anything that will induce baldness for the ears, nose, and back?
