Some questions about Aderans


#1

Hello,

I have some questions about Aderans, and I hope that someone can give me some responses:

1- Why they are asking for people with prominent area of hair loss in the crown and not in the front?

2- The actual recruitment that they are doing now is the same that they did some months ago? Or it’s from another phase inside the II phase of the study?

3- When they were asking some months ago for volunters for the phase II, they were asking for people with hair loss in the crown too?

I don’t think that this is a big problem, but I’m just curious.

Thank you!

  1. The important thing is that they are looking for very bald people, not just thinning. And women are included, if I remember well.
  2. I think both are Phase II. It is a big trial, and I think they will recruit people in batches, not all at once.
  3. I don’t remember.

If they’re like most MPB researchers, they are probably just focusing on the crown rather than the hairline for reasons of consistency and predictability.

There is SO MUCH variation in the way the front half of man’s head will bald. The specific shape in which it balds, how quickly, etc. For example, there are lots of guys who get one temple receding faster than the other. And there are some guys who swear that Finasteride actually made their hairlines WORSE despite helping the rest of their MPB.

See what I mean? Confining the test areas to crown loss probably gives the researchers a much safer canvas to paint on.

I wouldn’t be worried about this aspect.
