Generic Propecia -- Japan’s first!

プロペシアジェネリックHere’s big news for the hair growth and regrowth sector.

Pfyzer, famous for pharmaceuticals like Viagra, announced on February 19, 2015 its having gained approval for the manufacture and sale of a generic version of finasteride, the first of its kind among generics.

Pfyzer’s finasteride is a generic form of Propecia that, like the latter, blocks the creation of male DHT hormone to prevent hair loss and thinning.


What are generics?

Generics are pharmaceuticals that use the same active ingredient as a name-brand drug the patent to that substance of which has expired. These generics are manufactured and produced by other companies.

Generic pharmaceuticals utilize the same compounds found in brand-name drugs after the patents for the latter expire. Because no research and development costs are required to develop the substances, they can be produced at a more economical pricepoint than the alternative.


So what does it all mean?

For the reasons above, people who have used Propecia to block hair loss and thinning can now make use of the finasteride capsules from Pfyzer to pursue treatment in a more cost-effective manner. We have begun selling generic Propecia (1mg capsules of finasteride from Pfyzer) ahead of other clinics.

While Propecia costs 7,500 JPY for 28 capsules and 22,000 JPY for 90, this product is 6,000 JPY for 28 capsules and 18,000 JPY for 90.

We encourage you to consider trying it today.

Avolve

アボルブについてThis drug was originally developed to treat enlarged prostrate. It was discovered to markedly block AGA-causing substances and was approved in 2009 by the Japanese Ministry of Labour, Health, and Welfare and is now used by 2.9M patients worldwide.

The American Academy of Dermatology has reported that Avolve is more effective than finasteride (Propecia) at blocking male hormones. 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, which assists in the production of dihydrotestosterone, the AGA-causing substance, comes in type I and II varieties.

Finasteride (Propecia) works only on type II of 5-alpha-reductase enzyme to block this activity. However, people for whom finasteride is ineffective can use Avolve to achieve better results.

Panstotin

パントスチンPanstotin blocks the causes of hair loss associated with AGA and aging, and is also effective against hair thinning. Alfatradiol, the active ingredient, blocks production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which damages the hair follicles in the scalp. This in turn prevents hair loss. While this hair loss treatment is originally intended for women, it can also be used by men.


Screenings

AGA genetic testing 15,000JPY

AGA genetic testing

In addition to detecting for latent risk of AGA (male pattern baldness) in the future, a test determines whether the person is receptive (i.e., will it produce effects if ingested) to Propecia (active ingredient: finasteride).

This can be used for preventive treatment of AGA. The test simply requires swabbing the mucous membranes inside your mouth with a cotton swab. The test costs 15,000 JPY. Note that this exam is not mandatory and is intended only for those who elect to take it.

Humans have twenty-three chromosomes, with one of these being the sex chromosome. Sex chromosomes are either X or Y; inheriting an X chromosome from both the mother and father leads to the female sex, while inheriting an X chromosome from the mother and Y from the father leads to the male sex.

AR genes are genes in which the X chromosome is found; it contributes to receptivity to male hormones and is considered to be one factor contributing to the risk of AGA and susceptibility to finasterides.

AR genes are expressed in repeating sets of three bases, such as C-A-G or G-G-C.

Through genetic testing, the total repetitions of CAG and GGC are used to determine the risk of AGA, and the repetitions of standalone GGC used to determine receptivity to finasteride. Specifically, the more repetitions of CAG and GGC, the less susceptible one is to AGA, and vice versa.
