Androgenic Alopecia or male-pattern baldness is one of the most common problems young people face worldwide. Doctors are often prescribing the FDA-approved drug Minoxidil to treat hair loss. Minoxidil application is a gold standard procedure for androgenic alopecia. But minoxidil efficacy is varying from person to person and minoxidil response can be known only after use for minimum of six months. One should use minoxidil continuously then only results can be seen. Minoxidil is a prodrug that is in an inactive state. The inactive form of minoxidil will be converted to active minoxidil sulphate by sulphotransferase enzyme present in the scalp. According to various research studies, low sulphotransferase levels in the scalp were observed in 60% of the global population. People with the low sulphotransferase enzyme will not respond to minoxidil for hair loss treatment.
Trichogene an Indian-based start-up company introduced Minoxidil Response Test to detect minoxidil responders with a simple buccal swab sample. MRT test is very important for doctors to provide more precise precision treatment for hair loss. Trichogene MRT is based on Pharmacogenetics that analyses the SULT1A1 gene. SULT1A1 gene encodes sulphotransferase enzyme. SULT1A1 gene mutations in the promoter region are responsible for low sulphotransferase enzyme levels.
With a simple buccal swab sample, we can detect whether a person is a responder or non-responder to minoxidil for hair loss treatment in 7 days. To order MRT visit www.trichogene.in and place an order. Trichogene delivers kits all over India. Once you receive the kit collect the sample and send it back to the lab.
