Hereditary pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is a genetic-based common baldness that is grounded on specific inherited genes. Although the genes are passed on to generations, the exact mode of inheritance still remains a debatable topic. While genetic hair loss is recognized as a polygenic trait in modern times, various proposed theories focused on a single dominant gene.
Traditional genetic engineering in hair loss was earlier based on a single gene approach that involved the examination of exclusive genes in a family (or a group). However, later the theory was proved wrong and it was found that hair loss is a complex trait as both sides of the family (genes) contribute to the condition.
