In the hectic world we live in, stress, drastic diets and various ailments can affect scalp and hair health, causing problems such as hair loss and alopecia in various forms. To provide a personalized and accurate solution, Fagron Genomics BV has developed TrichoTest™, a revolutionary test that promises to identify the exact cause of hair problems and provide genetically tailored treatment recommendations.

 

A look at hair and scalp problems

Hair loss is a problem faced by many people at various stages of their lives. Among the most common types of alopecia are:

 

  • Androgenetic Alopecia (Baldness): Genetically determined and influenced by androgen hormones, this form of alopecia affects both men and women.
  • Alopecia Areata (Autoimmune): the immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing them to fall out suddenly in the form of round spots.
  • Telogen Effluvium: Caused by factors such as stress, pregnancy, drastic diets, nutritional diseases, anemia, hypothyroidism or medication, it leads to temporary hair loss.

Fagron TrichoTest™: a precise approach

Fagron TrichoTest™ is the result of intensive global research based on patient genetics. This test offers an astounding 99.9% accuracy, exceeding existing standards in diagnosing hair and scalp problems. By analyzing a saliva sample and a detailed questionnaire, TrichoTest™ reveals the specific cause of hair loss for each individual patient.

 

The analysis process takes an estimated 14 working days and is carried out in Fagron's genomics laboratory in Barcelona. This period ensures a careful examination of each sample, resulting in a detailed and personalised report for each patient.

 

Personalised treatment recommendations

One of the innovative aspects of the Fagron TrichoTest™ is that it provides personalised lifestyle recommendations and factors that can help to solve scalp and hair problems. These suggestions are based on genetic analysis and help patients adopt a treatment plan tailored to their specific needs.

 

Genetic analysis and effective substances

The laboratory report generated by TrichoTest™ indicates the patient's genetic compatibility with various substances used in pharmacology to treat hair loss and alopecia. Here are some categories of substances and specific examples:

 

  • Prostaglandin metabolism: Latanoprost / Minoxidil Prostaquinon™
  • Inflammation: clobetazole propionate / hydrocortisone acetate / betamethasone dipropionate
  • Androgenic effect: Dutasteride / 17alpha-estradiol / Finasteride
  • Vasodilation and blood circulation: Caffeine oral use
  • Collagen synthesis: collagen supplements
  • Vitamin and mineral metabolism: Biotin oral use / Vitamin A (retinol)
  • Insulin-like growth factor metabolism: Phytocomplex for stimulating growth factors such as KGF, IGF and VEGF.

This personalised approach gives patients the chance to adopt more effective and well-tolerated treatments, thus avoiding the trial and error process associated with many conventional therapies.

 

Conclusions

Fagron TrichoTest™ is an innovative approach to diagnosing and treating hair and scalp problems. By integrating genetic analysis and providing personalized recommendations, this test is at the forefront of modern technologies aimed at improving the quality of life of patients affected by hair loss and alopecia. With an impressive accuracy of 99.9%, TrichoTest™ opens new perspectives in personalized hair and scalp health care.
