Viable terminal scalp hair follicles constitute a necessary and sufficient biological end-organ that conditions clinical efficacy of finasteride in males with male pattern hair loss without implying reversal of miniaturized follicles.
Biopsy-based "reversal hypothesis" claimed conversion of miniaturized hair follicles into terminal ones for the improvement of male pattern hair loss (MPHL) with FDA-approved drugs.
Maintenance of optimised hair growth from viable terminal scalp hair follicles at baseline with oral finasteride in male pattern hair loss and first evidence of a "drug dependency" and a post-finasteride "rebound effect".
Analytical measures for the pharmacodynamics understanding of drug induced scalp hair responses are lacking.
The words 'hair follicles' was replaced with 'feather follicles' in the title and the main text.

A tube-like invagination of the EPIDERMIS from which the hair shaft develops and into which SEBACEOUS GLANDS open. The hair follicle is lined by a cellular inner and outer root sheath of epidermal origin and is invested with a fibrous sheath derived from the dermis. (Stedman, 26th ed) Follicles of very long hairs extend into the subcutaneous layer of tissue under the SKIN.
Either of two diseases resulting from fungal infection of the hair shafts. Black piedra occurs mainly in and on the hairs of the scalp and is caused by Piedraia hortae; white piedra occurs in and on the hairs of the scalp, beard, moustache and genital areas and is caused by Trichosporon beigelii.
Alkylating antineoplastic agent used especially in bladder neoplasms. It is toxic to hair follicles, gastro-intestinal tract, and vasculature.
