A Cochrane Review is a systematic review of primary research in human health care and health policy, and is internationally recognised as the highest standard in evidence-based health care. A Cochrane Review investigates the effects of interventions for prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.
Ladies experiencing female pattern hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, may be interested to read a recently published Cochrane Review of the condition.
It included 47 trials with 5,290 participants.
The review's authors concluded that there was evidence to support the efficacy and safety of topical Minoxidil in the treatment of female pattern baldness. Finasteride was shown to be no more effective than a placebo and there were inconsistent results in the studies that evaluated laser devices.
We would recommend those interested in the treatments of female pattern hair loss read the full review here.
