What is RU58841?
The compound known as RU58841 is an androgen receptor antagonist, also referred to as an anti-androgen. Androgenetic alopecia and acne were two of the conditions that this non-steroidal topical androgen antagonist was studied for its potential therapeutic value in. RU58841 has been shown to, in various research studies and clinical trials,
In order for RU58841 (RU-58841) to be effective, it must first bind to the androgen receptor that is present in the hair follicle. As a result, androgens do not have the opportunity to bind, which prevents them from initiating the chain reaction that leads to androgenetic alopecia and the so-called miniaturisation process. It has been shown to be possible to interrupt this hair loss message locally so that normal hair growth can continue. This has been demonstrated.
What is Ketoconazole?
Antifungal medications like ketoconazole are frequently prescribed for the treatment of fungal infections like athlete's foot and ringworm. When used topically on the scalp, it works to combat the fungus that leads to flaking and itching of the scalp (the same fungus that causes scalp infections can also hasten hair loss.)
What conclusions can be drawn from the clinical evidence?
Even though the data aren't completely conclusive, there is a substantial body of evidence suggesting that ketoconazole can assist in reducing the rate of hair loss and may even stimulate growth.
In a study that took place back in 1998 and was published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Dermatology, the researchers found that using a shampoo containing 2 percent ketoconazole increased hair density in addition to increasing the proportion and size of hair follicles. In point of fact, it's nearly as effective as the topical treatment minoxidil, which is approved by the FDA.
Ketoconazole is known to reduce inflammation, which is one of the factors that contributes to male pattern hair loss. In 2004, researchers discovered this potential explanation for the follicle-boosting effect of ketoconazole. The combination of ketoconazole and finasteride, another treatment for hair loss that is approved by the FDA, was found to be more effective than either treatment used alone.
Since that time, researchers have continuously uncovered new evidence suggesting that ketoconazole, either on its own or in combination with another tried-and-true treatment method, is an effective treatment for hair loss. If you are interested in the specifics, this review of the relevant medical literature can provide you with more information.
We provide this compound in a form that is exceptionally stable in both solid and solution form, as was demonstrated by our research and development laboratory. This form of the compound is unique and stable in its route of synthesis. The results are very encouraging, which demonstrates that the current route of synthesis is stable for at least 24 months when it is kept at room temperature.
