LONDON, ENGLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 03/22/12 -- Thinning hair experts Nanogen (www.nanogen.co.uk) carried out extensive research into the efficacy of Hair Growth Factors to both maintain hair growth and increase hair retention. Nanogen Hair Growth Factors (VEGF) were tested on human hair versus 5% minoxidil, the standard treatment, with these startling results:
-- Nanogen Hair Growth Factor Treatment Serum can significantly increase hair growth rate, up to 237% more than the standard 5% minoxidil solution. -- Nanogen Hair Growth Factors maintained hair growth at a healthy rate. In contrast, the minoxidil control's growth began to decline as occurs prior to falling out. This shows Nanogen prolonged hair survival more effectively, which will prevent hair loss. -- Nanogen Hair Growth Factors in combination with minoxidil can significantly increase hair growth rate - up to 133% more than minoxidil alone.
Nanogen began researching Hair Growth Factors as part of a continual search for natural treatments to thicken and improve hair, without side effects. VEGF is a particularly interesting example as a key mediator of hair growth. With the aid of DNA technology, safe and identical copies of VEGF protein can now be made. These are now available in Nanogen products.
Dermatologist Dr Vicky Jolliffe, commented on the research: "Thinning hair can be devastating for many people. A product which can restore confidence and self-esteem without the side effects of some currently available preparations is certainly worth considering. I always take a multi-faceted approach to treating thinning hair and we may see this product playing an important role in patient management. The science behind Nanogen's Hair Growth Factors is exciting and preliminary research shows there to be considerable potential for this product in managing the patient with hair loss."
