New topical Tofacitinib treatment done in Thailand 2 months ago that showed great promise for male/female pattern baldness!

( Here is the link on the study that honestly lead me to this website. I am extremely pleased with the way the research was conducted and the detail to which it was conducted. It was published by an MD/PhD which if you dont know gives them even more credibility. Basically in America our brightest minds go into the medical field but in Asia their brightest minds go into biomedical research and in that group of extremely intelligent people their lay a subgroup that are selected to become MD/PhD's, these people are extremely driven, talented geniuses to put it lightly. I dont see this as any different than a lot of other research done with similar targets other than they identified vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) as a possible immunotarget for future therapy, they found the up-regulation of VEGF and down regulation of the JAK/STAT pathway lead to profound hair gains in mice models. Again reaffirming the theory that microinflammation is the cause of some forms of male/female pattern baldness.....Curious what you guys think about this research, would love to hear input about this paper

It has come to my attention that not all of you may be able to access the paper (even though it should be free) so i have attached a picture of the results on mice, i hope this sparks some conversation between you guys because i would love to hear what you guys think about the theory that male/female pattern baldness is a inflammatory process and what you guys think about this being a possible therapy
