DNA testing of hair[edit]

CSI (neglect which explicit collection) means that solely a particular a part of the hair (guessing sheath close to root) incorporates testable genetic materials. Is there any factual foundation? — Nahum Reduta [talk|contribs] 09:09, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

No. Till a 12 months or two in the past, present expertise solely allowed DNA to be harvested from the sheath close to the foundation. That does not imply that there is not DNA within the hair strand itself, simply that that exact expertise could not harvest it from the strand. New breakthroughs permit DNA to be harvested from hair strands. CSI is a extremely, actually unhealthy place to get your science from. –NellieBly (speak) 01:21, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Great reference article so as to add[edit]

  • First, there’s a fantastic NEJM article that I referenced just a few instances on this article, and I feel if somebody has extra time, extra content material might be cited from it. The article is: Paus, Ralf; Cotsarelis, George. “The Biology of Hair Follicles.” The New England Journal of Drugs. 1999; 341(7): 491-497. PMID 10441606. I can electronic mail it to you for those who contact me.
  • Second, in case you are within the pores and skin, adnexa, or dermatology, I might love some assist over at WP:DERM… simply fyi. kilbad (speak) 05:19, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Hello! Thanks for all of your hardwork on making a Wiki-page on the hair follicle! I am a 4th 12 months Medical Pupil all for Dermatology and really feel I can contribute positively to enhancing the knowledge introduced on this subject. Please see my workplan beneath and I am open to any recommendations to my edits!

Work plan[edit]

Hello! I am a 4th 12 months Medical scholar at UCSF all for Dermatology and I’ve chosen to edit this web page as a part of the Wikiproject Drugs elective at UCSF.
It is a C-class high quality article of Excessive Significance in Dermatology.
My workplan is as follows:
Between 11/27/17-12/15/17 I’ll enhance the lead part, add dialogue of variations in hair follicle and look of hair, add part on ailments of the hair follicle, add part on remedy of ailments of the hair follicle.Oni1981 (speak) 18:47, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

Whats up! Listed here are my peer evaluation feedback, organized by part. I’ll electronic mail you a doc with proposed grammatical edits.

Lead: (1) I’ve made some modifications to the checklist of levels within the first paragraph of the result in edit for parallel construction, which I’ve emailed to you in a separate doc. (2) Within the second paragraph, I feel you may present rather less element concerning the position of hair in society as that part is slightly wordy and distracts from the primary focus of the article, the follicles themselves. I’ve offered a pattern edit within the connected doc.
Pores and skin Anatomy: I feel that your language turns into a bit too technical for a typical wikipedia viewers. Once you give examples of the distinction in distribution/density of hair follicles, your level may be very clear. Nonetheless, the usage of the phrase “topographical” within the previous sentence might be extra technical than obligatory.
Ailments of the hair follicle: (1) I feel that it will be applicable so as to add a brief lead part right here stating that there are a selection of ailments affecting the follicle and perhaps giving some broad classes, as the photographs within the part solely present just a few ailments. (2) Including hyperlinks to those completely different ailments listed can be helpful.
Common feedback: This text is missing extra therapies for ailments affecting the follicle. Nonetheless, that is an article concerning the hair follicle itself, not ailments of the hair follicle, so additional dialogue of therapies for ailments of the hair follicle could also be higher left to a separate wiki web page. If that’s the course that you just go, I feel a greater title for the part about hair transplantation can be one thing like “Makes use of/roles in medical remedy of illness.”

Membership Hair[edit]

The hyperlink to outline “membership hair” is exterior. The rules state that an article must be comprehensible with out having to go away the location (paraphrased). I can perceive the overall concept of the article, however to say that the hair is transformed to a membership hair, with out us understanding what a membership hair is, leaves a gap in that understanding, and, I feel, signifies one on this article.
