Nizoral studyIzed image analysis (MOP Videoplan Kontron, Eching, Germany) was applied to the same samples to derive the average diameter (1), pm) of the hair shafts at 1.5 cm from the bulb.Both hair variables employed are known to decrease during AGA progression.Hence, an AGA pilary index (PI) was derived to combine these variables following PI= AxD.
Seborrhea is often present in AGA  and fuels growth of lipophilic rnicroorganisms.It is therefore not desirable for both biological and cosmetic reasons.The sebum casual level at the skin surface was measured at each evaluation time using the Sebumetee (Courage and Khazaka, Cologne, Germany).Four measurements were taken at random on the alopecic vertex and the average was calculated.There was a treatment-free interval of at least 36 h between the last shampoo and sebumetric measurements.Study 2 In light of the data yielded by the first study, a comparison was made between effects of KCZ and minoxidil on the AGA hair status.Two groups of 4 men, aged between 24 and 29 years, who showed grade III vertex AGA, were selected after giving their informed consent.
A 4-mm punch biopsy was taken from the vertex area at inclusion in the study and after a 6-month treatment using either the 2% KCZ shampoo (Nizoral) or the combination of 2% minoxidil lotion (Rogame', Upjohn) once daily and the unmedicated shampoo Wash and Go.Shampoos were used ad libitum.Biopsies were formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded.Step sections were cut parallel to the skin surface.Computerized image analysis (MOP Videoplan Kontron) was applied to the section where the sebaceous glands had the largest relative area.
For each pilary unit, both the hair shaft diameter and the sebaceous gland area were recorded.Statistical Analysis The distribution of each variable was characterized by the median, 95% confidence interval and mode.When the distribution was normal, the mean (M), standard deviation (SD) and the coefficient of variation (V = 102 SID - M-') were calculated.Group differences at entry in the study were compared statistically employing the Mann-Whitney U test for unpaired samples.Variance (ANOVA) and regression model analyses were applied to determine the relationship between variables.
All results were considered to be significant at the 5% critical level.Results Study I At entry in the study, subjects with AGA had a significantly lower PI (p0.001) than controls (fig.1).No significant difference was then found between PI of the two AGA subgroups.In control subjects without AGA, the PI remained unchanged during the study, whether they used the KCZ or the unmedicated shampoo.The PI of AGA subjects using the unmedicated shampoo showed a slow linear (r=0.56, p0.05) decrease in time (fig.1).Large interindividual diherences were evidenced in the AGA evolution as evaluated by the PI.
In contrast to such a disease progression, the KCZ group yielded a progressive PI increase that became evident after a 6-month survey and apparently reached a plateau value after about 15 months (fig.1).However, the overall relationship between KCZ PI and time was best fitted by a linear regression model (r= 0.69, p 0.01).The mean sebum casual level was sig-nificantly (p0.05) higher in AGA subjects (11547 pg/cm') than in controls (6944 pg/em').It did not show any evidence for meaningful variation in AGA and normal volunteers using the unmedicated shampoo.A trend in logarithmic decrease (r=-0.43, p0.07) was found in KCZ-treated AGA subjects, reaching a median reduction of 18% at the completion of the study.Study 2 At entry into the study, the AGA hair den-sity reached 250--t38/CM2 in the KCZ group and 276
33/cM2 in the minoxidil + unmed-icated shampoo group.No significant dif-ference in both hair shaft diameter and seba-ceous gland area was present between the two allocated groups receiving one of the Fig.1.Variations in time of the PI (median and 95% confidence interval) in subjects with AGA.The use of 2% KCZ shampoo (E) is associated with a significant increase in PI, while the natural evolution of the alopecia on unmedicated shampoo (0) shows a slow progressive decrease in Pl.0, 0 = 95 % confidence intervals.

The median hair shaft diameter was 46.7 gm (confidence interval: 29.6-71.8).The distribution of that hair variable was bimodal in most AGA subjects.
The intraindividual coefficients of variation ranged from 3 2 to 6 8 %.A normal di stribution of sebaceous gland area was found with a mean of 1,614491 pm'.In both subgroups of subjects, a negative linear relationship was found between the hair shaft diameter and the area of the corresponding sebaceous glands (fig.2).At completion of the 6-month trial, the hair density reached 296 22/cm' (+ 18%) in the KCZ group and 306 29/CM2 (+11%) in the minoxidil + unmedicated shampoo group.A 7% increase in the median hair shaft diameter was yielded by both the KCZ shampoo and minoxidil + unmedicated shampoo combination (fig
