AUSTIN, Texas, June 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Fagron North America, a global leader in pharmaceutical compounding, debuts the most advanced genetic test supporting medical practitioners' assessment and treatment of hair loss in the US: TrichoTest.*
TrichoTest is a genetic test performed on patients' DNA that analyzes 13 genes and 48 genetic variations related to alopecia, including androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata, and telogen effluvium. This genetic test is based on state-of-the-art DNA microarray technology and utilizes a patented algorithm to provide a personalized treatment recommendation to medical practitioners from 175 million therapeutic alternatives. TrichoTest analyzes prostaglandins metabolism, inflammation, androgenic effect, vasodilation and blood circulation, collagen synthesis, vitamins and minerals metabolism, and insulin-like growth factor metabolism.
Alopecia is a progressive and multifactorial condition related to endogenous and exogenous factors. Often, endogenous factors are genetics and associated with gene expression. The most common type of hair loss, known as androgenetic alopecia, is hereditary. If left untreated, hair loss usually progresses over time. TrichoTest is the most complete genetic test for alopecia, analyzing genetic factors and other relevant patient characteristics.
TrichoTest supports treatment efficacy. The test results can help medical practitioners develop a personalized treatment plan for their patients, which may include compounded topical solutions, oral supplements, and prescription hair care products.
Today, TrichoTest is the only complete genetic test for alopecia and hereditary hair loss in the US market.
