Prevention of hair loss with chemo?


Question from Giselle: Are there any studies going on concerning prevention of hair loss during chemotherapy?
Answers - Eric Winer, M.D. There is interest once again in looking at an ice cap to prevent hair loss with chemotherapy; perhaps even more importantly there is more and more interest in drugs that do not cause hair loss. We all hope that hair loss as a result of cancer treatment will at some point in the future be a problem of the past.
