MicroRNA That Shows Promise for Hair Regrowth

MicroRNA That Shows Promise for Hair Regrowth

Researchers Identify MicroRNA That Shows Promise for Hair Regrowth

Researchers from North Carolina State University have identified a microRNA (miRNA) that could promote hair regeneration. This miRNA – miR-218-5p – plays an important role in regulating the pathway involved in follicle regeneration and could be a candidate for future drug development.

Hair growth depends on the health of dermal papillae (DP) cells, which regulate the hair follicle growth cycle. Current treatments for hair loss can be costly and ineffective, ranging from invasive surgery to chemical treatments that don’t produce the desired result.

Recent hair loss research indicates that hair follicles don’t disappear where balding occurs, they just shrink. If DP cells could be replenished at those sites, the thinking goes, then the follicles might recover.

A research team led by Ke Cheng, Randall B. Terry, Jr. Distinguished Professor in Regenerative Medicine at NC State’s College of Veterinary Medicine and professor in the NC State/UNC Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, cultured DP cells both alone (2D) and in a 3D spheroid environment. A spheroid is a three-dimensional cellular structure that effectively recreates a cell’s natural microenvironment.

In a mouse model of hair regeneration, Cheng looked at how quickly hair regrew on mice treated with 2D cultured DP cells, 3D spheroid-cultured DP cells in a keratin scaffolding, and the commercial hair loss treatment Minoxidil. In a 20-day trial, mice treated with the 3D DP cells had regained 90% of hair coverage at 15 days.

“The 3D cells in a keratin scaffold performed best, as the spheroid mimics the hair microenvironment and the keratin scaffold acts as an anchor to keep them at the site where they are needed,” Cheng says. “But we were also interested in how DP cells regulate the follicle growth process, so we looked at the exosomes, specifically, exosomal miRNAs from that microenvironment.” Exosomes are tiny sacs secreted by cells that play an important role in cell to cell communication. Those sacs contain miRNAs.

MiRNAs are small molecules that regulate gene expression. Cheng and his team measured miRNAs in exosomes derived from both 3D and 2D DP cells. In the 3D DP cell-derived exosomes, they pinpointed miR-218-5p, a miRNA that enhances the molecular pathway responsible for promoting hair follicle growth. They found that increasing miR-218-5p promoted hair follicle growth, while inhibiting it caused the follicles to lose function.

“Cell therapy with the 3D cells could be an effective treatment for baldness, but you have to grow, expand, preserve and inject those cells into the area,” Cheng says. “MiRNAs, on the other hand, can be utilized in small molecule-based drugs. So potentially you could create a cream or lotion that has a similar effect with many fewer problems. Future studies will focus on using just this miRNA to promote hair growth.”

The research appears in Science Advances, and was supported by the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association. Cheng is corresponding author. Postdoctoral researcher Shiqi Hu is first author.

Published: July 24, in Science Advances

Abstract: The progression in the hair follicle cycle from the telogen to the anagen phase is the key to regulating hair regrowth. Dermal papilla (DP) cells support hair growth and regulate the hair cycle. However, they gradually lose key inductive properties upon culture. DP cells can partially restore their capacity to promote hair regrowth after being subjected to spheroid culture. In this study, results revealed that DP spheroids are effective at inducing the progression of the hair follicle cycle from telogen to anagen compared with just DP cell or minoxidil treatment.

Because of the importance of paracrine signaling in this process, secretome and exosomes were isolated from DP cell culture, and their therapeutic efficacies were investigated. We demonstrated that miR-218-5p was notably up-regulated in DP spheroid–derived exosomes. Western blot and immunofluorescence imaging were used to demonstrate that DP spheroid–derived exosomes down-regulated the secreted frizzled-related protein 2 and up-regulated β-catenin, promoting the development of hair follicles.

Hair Products Cause Hair Loss

Hair Products Cause Hair Loss

Johnson & Johnson Hair Products Cause Hair Loss, Lawsuit Claims

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Johnson & Johnson with the claim that the company’s OGX hair care products cause significant hair loss.

The products are sold at major national retailers, including Target, Ulta, CVS, Walmart, and Walgreens. Johnson & Johnson shampoos, conditioners, and some hair oils are among the products named in the lawsuit.

The plaintiff, Larissa Whipple, an Illinois woman, cites the ingredient DMDM hydantoin as the main concern. DMDM hydantoin is a preservative and antimicrobial agent sometimes found in hair care products. It’s considered a “formaldehyde donor,” meaning it releases a small amount of formaldehyde overtime to keep the product fresh.

But formaldehyde donors like this one have been linked to allergies, rashes, hair loss, and cancer. The Department of Health and Human Services’ National Toxicology Program has said formaldehyde is known to cause cancer.

The lawsuit says that the company may have violated consumer protection laws by advertising the products containing this ingredient to people who want healthy hair.

“Johnson & Johnson made a number of affirmative misrepresentations … that the products ‘deeply nourish’, ‘gently cleanse,’ and ‘repair hair.’ However, the products’ formula contains an ingredient, or combination of ingredients, that has caused Plaintiff and thousands of consumers to experience hair loss and/or scalp irritation,” the lawsuit says.

Johnson & Johnson says all their ingredients are carefully selected and are listed on the products’ label. The company stated that none of their new products contains DMDM hydantoin and they have not launched any new hair products with this ingredient in several years.

“We carefully select ingredients to ensure the safety and performance of our products,” Johnson & Johnson said in a statement to WebMD. “Some of our existing products contain a small amount of DMDM hydantoin, which is used to prevent mould from developing while the product is in the shower. Every preservative used in our products must clear our rigorous safety assessment process.”

In August 2012, Johnson & Johnson announced it would remove DMDM hydantoin and other similar ingredients from their products by 2015. However, the lawsuit says that is a “broken promise.”

“Johnson & Johnson did in fact remove DMDM hydantoin from existing consumer products at that time,” the lawsuit says. “However, when Johnson & Johnson acquired Vogue International, including their line of OGX products, Johnson & Johnson failed to change the ingredient profile of the products that did not maintain the same standards for consumer safety.”

In the preservatives section of Johnson & Johnson’s safety and care commitment website, the company claims DMDM hydantoin does not meet their safety standards, but further down the page they say they use DMDM hydantoin in products when other preservatives are incompatible with other ingredients in a formula.

Dermatologist Shani Francis, MD, says hair product manufacturers should be striving to create a positive experience for their customers.

“Hair breakage and texture changes are important clues to pay attention to regarding overall hair health. We should always seek out products to enhance our hair care experience,” Francis says. “Having a great understanding of your individual hair needs is most important to avoid problems.”

DMDM hydantoin is listed by the FDA as one of the preservatives found to cause the most allergic reactions from the use of cosmetic products. The FDA requires certain products to list ingredients, but some ingredients may not be specifically identified and instead listed as “fragrance” or “perfume.”

Francis says an important thing to remember is that there is no “one size fits all” for hair care products and seeking out products with a company history of strong customer experience is a good way to look for new products.

“For ingredients, water-based products are generally a good place to start. Aloe vera high in the ingredient list suggests a more acidic pH. Glycerin also is a humectant that can help naturally add moisture to the hair,” Francis says. “Ultimately, balance is most important. Often[times], too much of a good thing is not a good thing. Additionally, if you have an underlying medical, scalp or skin condition, you could have a unique situation and should seek the help of a board-certified dermatologist.”

Radical New Way to Treat Baldness

Radical New Way to Treat Baldness

Hair Follicles Can Smell Sandalwood, And It Could Be a Radical New Way to Treat Baldness

We tend to imagine smells as things that just float around us in the air, but there’s more to it than that.

What we perceive as the smell is actually an intersection between molecules called odorants (or aroma compounds) and olfactory receptors that are expressed by cells in our body, which send a signal to the brain when activated.

That whole process, in a nutshell, is the smell. But it turns out it’s not just our noses that can do it.

New research shows that human hair follicles express an olfactory receptor of their own called OR2AT4, and when OR2AT4 comes into contact with the molecular structure of a specific scent –synthetic sandalwood, as it turns out – it stimulates hair growth.

In other words, your hair – or rather your hair follicles – can ‘smell’, and if they sniff out the right chemical, it could be a radical new way of preventing hair loss.

“This is actually a rather amazing finding,” senior researcher and dermatologist Ralf Paus from the University of Manchester in the UK told The Independent.

“This is the first time ever that it has been shown that the remodelling of a normal human mini-organ [a hair] can be regulated by a simple, cosmetically widely-used odorant.”

Scientists already knew that OR2AT4 could be leveraged to promote keratinocyte proliferation in the skin (which promotes wound healing), leading Paus and his team to wonder whether olfactory receptors could be manipulated to also boost hair growth.

To find out, the researchers took samples of human scalp skin – donated by patients undergoing face-lift operations – and treated them with an application of synthetic sandalwood (aka Sandalore) in the lab.

Unlike authentic sandalwood, which doesn’t bind to OR2AT4, the team found synthetic sandalwood – used in personal care products to provide a sandalwood scent – does bind with the receptor, regulating expression and secretion of a key hair growth-promoting factor called IGF–1.

In other words, by promoting IGF–1, synthetic sandalwood stimulates the growing phase of hair cells, while helping to prevent them from dying.

When another chemical called Phenirat was mixed in to silence OR2AT4, it inhibited hair growing, suggesting the receptor plays a bigger part in hair growth than scientists previously knew.

The research was funded in part by an Italian pharmaceutical company that sells Sandalore in its products – which is something to bear in mind in light of the results.

But because of this pre-existing commercial availability of synthetic sandalwood, the team thinks their “olfactotherapy” discovery could end up helping patients sooner rather than later, if further clinical trials pan out.

According to Paus, the early signs of ongoing research are promising.

“A very small, short and preliminary clinical pilot study performed by an independent CRO [contract research organisation] in 20 female volunteers with topical Sandalore has already suggested a reduction of daily hair loss,” he says.

The next step is to see if that result can be replicated in a larger clinical trial, which the researchers hope to conclude in January next year.

We can’t get too carried away until we see what future tests bring, but according to Nicola Clayton of the British Association of Dermatologists, the initial data look exciting.

“It is a fascinating concept that the human hair follicle, as the authors put it, can ‘smell’ by utilising an olfactory receptor,” she told The Independent.

We’ll have to wait to see where this research leads from here, but if the team’s next trial is a success, we could be looking at an important new mechanism for hair loss prevention here.
