and finasteride (a synthetic drug used to be for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia), topically applied to fuzzy rat and androchronogenetic alopecia
(AGA) mouse, showed effectiveness in treating male pattern baldness

than that of
finasteride. These result indicated that the extract may be a potent
