Inflammation in androgenetic alopecia Years of research have led to the conclusion that androgenetic alopecia may be a result of an alteration in the hair growth cycle and/or a premature aging of the pilosebaceous unit. The etiology of androgenetic alopecia has been defined as multifactorial or even polygenic in nature. The fact that the success rate of treatment with either antihypertensive
