    Posted: 29/November/2013 at 10:02am

There is now an epidemic of frontal fibrosing alopecia in the UK and abroad.

I was at a patient support meeting 2 weeks ago organised by the CARF (cicatrical alopecia research foundation) in London and met a doctor undertaking research at Guy's hospital, London in FFA.
 
Any ladies with  diagnosed frontal fibrosing alopecia please donate your DNA (saliva) for help with this research.  You just need to email Dr Christos Tziotzios and he will have a short telephone conversation to ask some simple questions then he will post a saliva collection kit to you (it does not matter if you live in the UK or abroad).
 
Dr Christos Tziotzios is Academic Fellow & Specialist Registrar, Genetic Skin Disease Group, Guy's Hospital, London
 
 
The more of us that donate DNA the better.
