  15. I am extremely grateful to be awarded a travel fellowship by the British Hair and Nail Society to attend the 10th World Congress for Hair Research, 2017. This conference was held at the International Conference Centre in Kyoto, Japan on 31st October to 3rd November 2017. The main theme of the Congress is ‘Visiting Old, Finding New’. This is a Japanese proverb meaning to review the progress of all previous research activities with the aim of gaining new insight for future directions. The 4-day Congress comprised of a day of hair courses for beginners and residents, and 3 days of scientific programme that included keynote lectures, plenary and concurrent sessions, scientific posters, clinical workshops, sponsored seminars and meet the expert sessions. On my first day of my arrival at the Congress, I was impressed by Congress venue that was filled with beautiful autumn scenery in a large garden. At the opening ceremony, Presidents from each of the Hair Societies from all over the world presented the histories of their Societies and developments. It was interesting to see how medical professions from all over the world come together to exchange knowledge and research findings in hair diseases, with the aim of bringing new and advanced treatments to this field. The learning course for residents was particularly useful to me as I have learnt about post-finasteride syndrome and management of difficult hair diseases. The topic on post-finasteride syndrome also generated a lot of debate on the use of this treatment for patients. The first day of the Congress ended with a special lecture on ancient Japanese hairstyles from a Japanese author. It was very interesting to see a different perspective on hairstyles presented from a non-medical professional. I found the plenary sessions on research on stem cells and hair transplantation enlightening. This was my first exposure to in-depth research studies in hair diseases. There were also updated treatments for various hair diseases which were useful to me as a trainee. From this conference, I have also realised that there is a need for further research in hair diseases, as there are still a lot of unanswered questions in this field. The experience has been amazing and I would definitely encourage trainees who are interested in hair diseases to attend the next World Congress for Hair Research in Barcelona in 2018.

  16. All About Alopecia

    @Friends Meeting Room, 6 Mount Street, M2 5NS 11am-3pm
  17. Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) is an increasingly common hair disorder characterised, in most cases, by a specific pattern of hair loss along the frontal hairline. The exact cause of this condition is complex and likely to be related to both genetic and environmental factors (i.e. multifactorial). A recent exciting new study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (November 2017) looked at how some of the genetic factors might contribute to this disease. In particular, this study examined the role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in the development of FFA. miRNAs are relatively newly discovered short non-coding RNA molecules found in humans that bind specifically to messenger RNA, involved in the process of gene expression, ultimately resulting in downregulation of protein expression and affecting aspects of cellular function and turnover. In this study, the researchers compared miRNA expression from blood samples of 10 FFA patients and 10 non-affected controls. They found that 55 miRNAs were upregulated in the blood of patients with FFA while 11 miRNAs were downregulated compared to controls. They also examined miRNA expression patterns in the affected scalps of 7 patients with FFA and compared with 7 non-affected controls. Importantly, they found 9 circulating miRNAs that were more commonly expressed in the scalps of patients with FFA compared with controls. Of these, 4 particular miRNAs were found to be highly linked to the disease. Using new analytical techniques, they discovered that these 4 miRNAs were linked to essential cell signalling, transport and adhesion pathways suggesting possible mechanisms as to how they might contribute to the disease process in FFA. This exciting study helps us to define further the complex interplay of genetic factors that contribute to FFA and, perhaps more importantly, identifies possible targets for therapeutic intervention in the future for this difficult disease. However, like all gene analysis studies, further research is necessary to determine exactly how these miRNAs might contribute to FFA and how they can be targeted in the future.

    1st World Congress of Trichoscopy and Symposium All About Hair and NailsDate: 15th - 17th March 2018Venue: Warsaw Marriott Hotel, Al. Jerozolimskie 65/79, WarszawaOrganiser: The International Trichoscopy Society, founded in May 2017Website: http://www.hairnails2018.com/1.2018/en/Invitation__5.html The International Trichoscopy Society was established after the impressive success of trichoscopy, a new diagnostic method, which recently developed into a basic diagnostic tool in dermatological practice. Trichoscopy also evolved into a great research tool in dermatology. The 1st World Congress of Trichoscopy will be combined with the symposium All About Hair and Nails, which will be an excellent setting to discuss the current progress in diagnosing hair, scalp and nail disorders. Worldwide opinion leaders will share with you knowledge about current standards and new therapeutic methods in hair, scalp and nail disorders. The value of cosmetic products as adjuvant products in dermatological practice will be discussed. Pre-congress courses will focus on basic trichoscopy and nail surgery. Young scientists are especially encouraged to present their recent findings and case reports. The ITS is looking forward welcoming you in Warsaw, one of the most modern cities in Europe.
