Alopecia Study In Need Of Control Participants

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is leading a study that will create a national registry of alopecia patients and their family members. The registry will allow researchers to determine the genetic components of alopecia, and hopefully lead to a better understanding of the disease with an eye toward an eventual cure. It seems that they are having good results with signing up alopecians and their family members, but less luck in finding control subjects. The AlopeciaCare.com site is currently stating that of the 500 control subjects needed, only 22 have been signed on so far. Control subjects must not have alopecia, or be related to anyone who has it. Which naturally excludes those most directly and even indirectly effected by the disorder.
