New treatment helps cancer patients keep their hair

A new Japanese study found that cooling the head of patients during chemotherapy sessions resulted in more than 82% of the patients retaining the majority of their hair. The study was on 255 women with breast cancer, wearing a DigniCap device. The coldness of the DigniCap reduces the the blood flow to the follicles which minimizes their absorption of the toxic chemicals. A study here in US is currently under way to test its effectiveness.
