Alopecia, androgenetic, 1

Androgenetic alopecia is characterized by a loss of hair from the scalp that follows a defined pattern (Hamilton, 1951). It occurs in women as well as in men. It is caused by a shortening of the anagen (growth) phase and miniaturization of the hair follicle, which results in the formation of progressively thinner, shorter hair (Bergfeld, 1995). In men, the condition is often referred to as male pattern baldness (MPB) and appears to be androgen-dependent (Hamilton, 1942). The condition is hereditary, and follows a pattern that may be consistent with an autosomal dominant trait (Osborn, 1916). Linkage evidence for an autosomal locus on 3q26 (AGA1) has been identified (Hillmer et al., 2008). See 300710 (AGA2) for a discussion of X linkage of androgenetic alopecia. A third locus has been found on chromosome 20p11 (AGA3; 612421). [from OMIM]

Serenoa repens

A small hardy fan palm, endemic to coastal plains from South Carolina to southeastern Louisiana including the Florida peninsula, whose stem usually remains below ground or runs just along the surface. In some cases, it develops an erect or arching trunk that may lift the whorl of leaves 2-8 ft (0.6-2.4 m) above ground. The palmate leaves are 2-3 ft (0.6-0.9 m) across and green or bluish green. The cluster of leaves gets about 4-6 ft (1.2-1.8 m) high with a similar spread. In the wild, saw palmetto often grows in clumps 20 ft (6 m) or more in diameter. Drugs extracted from its berries have been used to treat, prostrate swelling, bladder infections and urinary tract infections. [from NCI]
