Abstract: Male pattern baldness affects up to half of the male Caucasian population by middle age, and almost all Caucasian men by old age. Especially in younger men, this heritable form of hair loss can have significant psycho-social consequences. Although approved pharmacological agents exist to manage the condition, none of the currently available options are highly efficacious. New treatments under development, and acceleration in our understanding of the underlying molecular genetic aetiology of this condition provide increased hope for future targeted treatment strategies.
