Expression of epidermal growth factor
Background: Currently there were revealed several growth factors that are capable to control the development and the cycle of the hair follicle. However, issues of participation of the growth factors in the pathogenesis of alopecia are still poorly studied. Contradictory results were obtained when studying the role of the epidermal growth factor (EGF), and keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) in the hair cycle. Objectives: to study the expression of EGF and KGF in the development of androgenic alopecia (AGA) in men and women.
