Werewolf Gene Discovered by Scientists which Could End the Baldness
Science & Technology Current Affairs 2011. The Scientists on 5 June 2011 discovered a werewolf gene which causes hair to grow all over the body
The Scientists on 5 June 2011 discovered a werewolf gene which causes hair to grow all over the body. The discovery could provide a remedy for baldness. According to the Scientists, a genetic fault is behind a rare condition called hyper-trichosis also known as werewolf syndrome, where thick hair covers the face and upper body. Based on this finding, Scientists could use drugs to trigger a similar gene mutation in people to cause hair grow on bald patches.
It should be noted that Werewolf syndrome is very rare, in the past 300 years only 50 cases were recorded. Thick hair similar to wolf grows on upper part of the body and face of a human being under this syndrome.
