Jab to end baldness 'ready in five years' using fat cells from sagging bellies

Jab to end baldness 'ready in five years' using fat cells from sagging bellies

An injection that gives middle-aged men the hairline of their youth could be available in just five years, scientists predicted last night.

The jab would use fat cells from the tummy to pep up hair growth on the scalp.

The required amount of fat would not be enough to make a noticeable difference to waistlines.


Cure: A baldness jab for men could be on the market within five years and would use fat cells to pep up hair growth on the scalp (posed by models)

But researchers say there may be a market for combining the taking of cells with a full liposuction.

This could then be marketed as a two-in-one rejuvenation treatment for men and women to slim down and grow hair back.

It is hoped the treatment will put a spring in the step of those with male pattern baldness, which affects two-thirds of men as they age, as well as men and women with alopecia, in which small bald patches appear on the scalp. The promise centres on hair follicles – the tiny structures that sprout hairs.

In a series of experiments, researchers from Yale University in the United States looked at what triggers the hair growth.

They found fat cells to be key, with immature fat cells producing chemical signals that ‘wake up’ dormant follicles, leading to the production of hair.


Treatment: Wayne Rooney had a transplant costing £30,000 to fix his receding hairline

Writing in the journal Cell, they describe how jabs of fat cells drawn from mouse bellies triggered the growth of new fur.

The researchers are now ‘very close’ to homing in on the key cells in humans – leading to the prospect of the chemical-making cells being removed from the stomach region and injected into the scalp.

Other possibilities include creams or lotions that contain the hair-triggering chemicals and can be rubbed on to the scalp, said researcher Valerie Horsley.

It may even be the case that one treatment would work for years.

All of the mice used in the experiments had pigment-free white coats. But it is hoped that any new human hairs grown would be of the right colour.

Until now, Britain’s 7.4million bald and balding men have had limited options including a comb-over, toupee or hair transplant.

Hair transplants are expensive and the results can be variable.

Wayne Rooney, for instance, spent £30,000 on fixing his receding hairline but recent pictures show some of the footballer’s new growth to be distinctly grey in colour.

Despite being a supposed signal of virility, hair loss can have a devastating effect on self-esteem, especially among younger men.
