Reducing Hair Loss During and After Chemotherapy

The hair loss caused by chemotherapy drugs used for cancer treatment can be minimized with copper peptides. Awa and Nogimori found that application of copper peptides minimize hair loss after chemotherapy and accelerated new hair growth in rats.

Rats were pretreated with copper peptides
then exposed to chemotherapeutic drugs.
This reduced hair loss.

If the rats were first given chemotherapeutic drugs
then treated with copper peptides later,
the copper peptides speeded hair regrowth.
