  • Patent number: 10633688
    Abstract: Methods, processes, systems, and apparatuses are disclosed for predicting minoxidil response in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia based on colorimetric assay for sulfotransferase activity. In particular, SULT1A1 activity may be used as an indicator of minoxidil response. A genetic test for alleles of the SULT1A1 gene may be performed to provide a more personalized therapy.
