Date:3/24/2008

DETROIT, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Millions of people around the world have had their lives turned upside down by severe and unexpected hair loss.

This drastic change in their physical appearance was caused by various forms of a noncontagious disease generally known as alopecia, which presently can be treated but not cured.
