Hair Loss


The Hair Loss Predisposition Test is a DNA test aimed at identifying possible predispositions to alopecia and baldness.

It is a common disorder that affects about 40% of adult men and can also affect women.

It is called androgenetic because a genetic predisposition and androgenic hormones acting on the hair follicle contribute to its occurrence. The genetic transmission of androgenetic alopecia still remains partly unknown. It is a polygenic disease, and different genes are assumed to regulate different aspects of the phenotypic expression of the disease, such as age of onset, rate of progression, clinical pattern, and severity: the more predisposing genetic factors are present, the greater the chance of developing baldness at a younger age.

Also being a multifactorial phenomenon, alopecia is also influenced by environmental factors: baldness can be accelerated by any stressful condition that consequently causes increased hair loss.
