Propecia as Men Hair Loss Treatment Medicine

Propecia has been studied in several tests including a 5 year clinical study to understand its effectiveness in treating men hair loss. The study produced following results:

90% of participants saw a visible improvement divided into 48% who saw re-growth of hair and 42% who saw no further hair loss. This is compared to 25% in a placebo control group.fine
In the first year of the study 86% experienced visibly more hair.

The active ingredient in Propecia is finasteride which belongs to a group of medicines known as 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors. Finasteride prevents the enzyme 5 alpha-reductase from converting testosterone to its active form DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in the body. DHT plays a major role in inherited male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia). By preventing the production of DHT, finasteride can stimulate hair growth in many men with mild to moderate inherited male pattern baldness.
