DNA Test for hair loss

Optimizes medical treatment
Not so many clinics use it

The hair loss DNA test is a tool to ascertain the ideal drug treatment for each individual patient

 

Purpose of the DNA hair loss test:

  • To determine which substances (drugs, active pharmaceutical ingredients - APIs - which act on the metabolic pathways) will work best in a patient (according to his genetic variations) to prevent hair loss.
  • The test is performed for non-scarring alopecia, so it is suitable for androgenic alopecia, alopecia areata, and telogen effluvium.

 

Test methods (TrichoTest ™ from Fagron laboratories):

  • Saliva sampling at the clinic (collection kit - Fagron Trichotest - single use), and medical questionnaire
  • Dispatch by the clinic to Genomics (Fagron) in Spain for analysis
  • Results within 3 to 4 weeks, sent to the doctor by Genomics

 

Drugs and active ingredients likely to be recommended according to the genetic variations of each patient (TrichoTest ™):

  • Prostaquinone ™
  • Latanoprost
  • Minoxidil
  • Steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  • 17α-estradiol
  • Finasteride, Dutasteride
  • Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors
  • Collagen production activators
  • Tocopherol, Retinol
  • Biotin
  • IGrantine-F1 ™

 

Benefits of DNA testing:

  • For example, the test helped in the case of a woman who did not respond at all to estradiol or finasteride, but who responded well to ketoconazole and cyproterone acetate in terms of antiandrogens.
  • The test can also help determine whether a patient will respond better to finasteride or dutasteride.
  • Based on the test results, the doctor may recommend which medications or supplements to take by mouth and which to take as a lotion.
