A team of researchers from the University of Bradford has found in a recent study that the drug largely used to treat a condition in eyes can also prove promising for treating baldness, as per a report published in the journal of Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. The side-effect of the Lumigan eye-drops can be extremely beneficial, the team says.
It is being said that the active ingredient bimatoprost present in Lumigan may help boost the growth of eyelashes in one. Also, the effect can be seen on the scalp. However, the drug is already in clinical use for the same purpose.
Further clinical trials are on their go so as to confirm the benefits in the US and Germany. Results would probably be out by the year end. About 220 men with male pattern baldness along with 172 women with the same have been involved in the same.
The team is of the belief that its success would mean a simple and effective treatment for hair loss in men and women both. "This means that - so long as the drug can be applied in such a way that it can reach the follicle - it should stimulate hair growth in patients", lead scientist Professor Valerie Randall said.
