Researchers Pinpoint Cells That Cause Gray Hair And Baldness In Mice.

TIME (5/8, John) reports researchers “have pinpointed the cells that cause” gray hair and baldness in mice, according to a study published in Genes & Development. The researchers discovered the cells “while studying a rare genetic disease that causes tumors to grow on nerves.”
       Yahoo! Beauty (5/8, Edwards) reports one of the researchers said he hopes to use the discovery “to create a topical compound or to safely deliver the necessary gene to hair follicles to correct these cosmetic problems.” HealthDay (5/8, Preidt) also covers the story.
