Researchers from Pennsylvania University said that they have found the gene which regulates the levels of prostaglandin D2 (PGD2), an enzyme which has been found to direct follicles to stop producing hair.

The researchers said that they have contacted a number of pharmaceutical companies over the possibility of developing a drug that could stop the effects of the enzyme, adding that there are already drugs available in the market, which reduce PGD2 levels.
