As it's already approved for another condition doctors could possibly prescribe it off label.

Thanks for posting the link. Yes there does seem to be some connection between bone growth and hair growth, vitamin D etc.

Here is the link richhairman posted for those that just want to click

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.

As usual, anything that might be of significant benefit for hair loss is found by accident A side-effect for a drug targeted at something else.
Hair loss research specifically looking for a cure to male pattern baldness has to date been a bit of a joke...

A 'Government Study' is not necessarily proof - "Garbage In, Garbage Out".

Have not had an HT, turned down by 3 clinics, sadly they were right, my donor area has miniaturised.
Now here to look for any advances and give newbies another opinion.

The guy in the centre of my icon doing the inspection of scars is the ideal potential HT candidate:- Doubting Thomas

This drug really Just works by activating the wnt pathway so probably not a find by accident. There's other companies developing treatments via the same route, Samumed is one such company.

Yeah, it WAS an accidental find :-

"Tests of a drug designed to treat brittle bone disease saw the agent promote hair growth."

WAY-316606 is already available for purchase so I'm sure some will try it very soon and we'll get an idea if it has any effect.

The real issue is going to be safety since anything to do with the wnt pathway carries risks.
