Is this real or a hoax?

January 26th, 2008, Stony Brook, NY - Researchers from the State University
of New York at Stony Brook, in conjunction with Johnson and Johnson, have announced today what is being hailed as the first cure to male pattern baldness. “We think we have the magic bullet”, claimed Richard Orentriech, Ph.D. from the university’s dept. of Biochemistry.

The cure, according to Orentriech, is a naturally occuring hormone called YH-1.
“What YH-1 does is act as an equal and opposite reaction to DHT affected follicle
sites”, claimed Orentriech. “Instead of DHT depletion, YH-1 acts in the opposite
way. It’s like pushing out the petals of a rose, the follicle does not die”.
In a trial of 30 follically challenged males over 40, YH-1 was shown to be over
80% effective in reversing male patten baldness and giving patients a thick head of
hair. According to Orentriech, more trials are expected this year before J&J will
seek FDA approval for the drug

Google search reveals no matches on “YH-1 DHT”, or “YH-1 hormone”.

There is nothing on the JnJ website.

of course it’s a hoax

Please post a link Rooster.

There’s a thread on HLH with the same text posted by a bloke called deadlocks.

Not sure if that’s where you got it, or if you are him.

There are some simple rules to know whether a hairloss solution is a hoax or not.

If it seems to good to be true is a hoax.
In case of doubt is a hoax.
If you are completely sure it is not a hoax then it is 99.99999% probably a hoax.

Hint for non-hoax solutions:
Someone you know who was bald comes with new hair.
If you just hear about somebody who knows someone with more hair is a hoax.

Definitive proof it is not a hoax: You get new hair on your own head.
