A new treatment for cancer patients may give hope to the men and women who want a new head of hair.
A scientist has developed a shampoo called Thymuskin. It's a treatment that's supposed to grow new hair and stop the progression of baldness.
The active ingredient is an extract derived from the thymus gland of a calf.
Originally it was tested in Germany to see if it could benefit cancer patients who lost their hair due to chemotherapy, and the results amazed researchers.
Thymuskin is sold over-the-counter at some health food stores and on the internet and costs about forty dollars a month. Since it has only undergone testing in Germany, the FDA will not allow its makers to claim on its label that it can regrow hair.
NEW SHAMPOO MAY COMBAT BALDNESS
Hats.. Comb-overs.. Even wigs.
They are common weapons against baldness but they are not cures.
Now researchers are claiming a breakthrough in helping cancer patients. May offer new hope to men and women who are losing their patience and their hair.
Hair can be an obsession but for the 46-million American men and 20-million American women with thinning hair.. It can be a devastating blow to self-esteem.
Now there's a new treatment.. That looks at baldness like an immune suppression disorder. They tested an immune-boosting shampoo.
"Dermatologists took the two groups of patients, 30 in each group; one group was given a placebo and the other group was given the ingredients in Thymuskin. Those patients receiving Thymuskin in the extract, grew hair in an exceedingly large quantity within a period of three months," said Dr. Morton Walker a dermatologist
Thymuskin is a hormone produced by the thymus gland. In the Thymuskin shampoo, it comes from calves. The first tests were done with cancer patients. Who frequently lose their hair after chemotherapy.
"The results were most dramatic for women, with a 99.5% success rate. For women, baldness doesn't have to exist anymore and for men, its about a 67% success rate," said Dr. Morton Walker.
Thymuskin is made in Germany and the hair growth claims have not yet been evaluated by the FDA.
It's also not a cheap treatment. One bottle of shampoo sells for about $40.00. The conditioner is another $35.00 and the hair gel or treatment lotion can set you back between $65.00 and $85.00.

There is an over the counter product that claims it can help grow hair. Some women swear by it saying it helps their thinning hair grow back. Medical Reporter Cherie Bank tells us what it is and what local experts think about it.
PHILADELPHIA - Men usually bald in the back. Women lose hair from the top. One quarter of all men begin to bald by the time they’re 30. One third of women have lost hair by age 50. Nobody likes it.
“I was 30 year old, going bald,” said Lisa Mea. “I didn’t know what else to do. I thought my life was going to have to turn into wearing a wig.”
Mea lost a lot of hair from illness and medication. Today her hair is growing back in, and she thinks much of it is due to a product called Thymuskin.
“It’s grown in completely in the front,” Mea said. “Now in the back I’m starting to have more growth in the crown section.”
Thymuskin consists of a daily shampoo and a daily lotion. NBC10 News decided to run an unscientific study of our own by asking Jamie Simmons and Harold Jones to try the products.
While prescription products like Minoxodil or Rogaine are approved by the FDA, Thymuskin doesn’t have to be FDA approved. It’s sold over the counter in health food stores.
The company really stands by their product. They say that it is an effective clinically researched German product.
In a letter to NBC10 the distributors of Thymuskin say, “These preparations have undergone extensive testing and studies and are manufactured under the strict guidelines of the German GMP, equivalent to the FDA here.”
In fact, Thymuskin claims it’s effective 95 percent of the time in women and 67 percent in men. But there is skepticism about those claims from Dr. George Cotsarellis, hair and scalp specialist from the University of Pennsylvania.
“To the best of my knowledge there is no scientific evidence that this works,” Dr. Cotsarellis said.
Thymuskin is made from the thymus gland of a cow, which makes the doctor even more skeptical.
“Do you really think that a product coming from a cow’s organ is going to help you by rubbing it on your head?” Dr. Cotsarellis asked.
The product is supposed to take eight weeks to work. NBC10 only gave Jamie and Harold three and a half weeks.
“I noticed it a little,” Harold said. “In the front and on the sides.”
“Unfortunately, I haven’t really noticed much of a difference,” Jamie said.
Both men plan to continue using the product which costs about $155 for both bottles. That should last you three to four months.

In other Health News Research to help cancer patients has inspired a breakthrough that may help millions of other men and women with hair loss.
Thymuskin is a new system combining a shampoo and scalp lotion. It was developed during a study to prevent hair loss in patients undergoing chemotherapy. It's a food substance, which is made from herbs and the thymus gland extract from a calf.
The thymus extract helps to boost the production of the T-Cells, and can lead to stopping hair loss, regrowing hair in bald areas, and a general enhancement of the immune system.
Studies showed that ThymuSkin was effective in stopping baldness and re-growing hair in 67 percent of males with male pattern baldness and 95 percent of women with female pattern baldness.
It has also proven effective on other diseases that cause hair loss.

Bald may be beautiful, but don't tell that to the thousands of American men who are what you might call "follicle- challenged". But now a treatment for cancer patients may give hope to all men and women who want a new head of hair!
Is there anything that can be done to prevent baldness? One scientist thinks he's got the answer!
He's the man behind a product called ThymuSkin - a treatment that's supposed to grow new hair, and stop the progression of baldness. The active ingredient in ThymuSkin is an extract derived from the thymus gland of a calf.
Originally it was tested in Germany to see if it could benefit cancer patients who lost their hair due to chemotherapy. Some patients received a placebo, others used the ThymuSkin treatment.
The results amazed the researchers. "Those patients grew hair in exceedingly large quantities within three months," said Dr. Morton Walker.
Dr. Walker is a podiatrist and author of the book Bald No More. He was spurred on to research baldness after he discovered his own hairline was rapidly diminishing. "With alopecia there is hair that falls out of the head - with women there's gradual thinning but for men it fits a pattern-baldness."
Dr. Walker believes baldness is a result of immune weakness. The theory goes that the thymus extract boosts the production of T-cells, which in turn, stimulate hair growth.
Does it work? It probably won't work if you've been bald for several years. But for some people who've tried it, it's just what the doctor ordered. For women baldness doesn't have to exist anymore. There's a 95 percent success rate, and for men, there's about a 67 percent success rate.
ThymuSkin is sold over the counter at some local health food stores and on the Internet. But, because its only undergone testing in Germany, the Food and Drug Administration will not allow its makers to claim on its label that it can regrow hair. But the FDA has approved ThymuSkin for cosmetic use. If you're interested, it'll cost you about $40 a month.
