A new gel has been developed to prevent hair loss – and damage to the scalp – resulting from radiotherapy treatment for cancer.

Current products marketed to prevent hair loss include ice-caps or packs.  These, however, are not always effective.

The gel, currently being tested by Mitos Pharmaceuticals, is based on a mixture of compounds, including antioxidants thought to help protect the healthy hair follicles from being destroyed by the treatment.

The gel is also being studied as a topical agent to prevent radiation damage to other areas of skin.

An intravenous form could help to protect the salivary glands during mouth radiation for head and neck cancer, says Dr James Metz of the University of Pennsylvania where clinical trials are taking place.
