Avodart or Dutasteride is a double 5AR (alpha reductase) inhibitor made by GlaxoSmithKline which unlike it's rival Proscar, is only approved for treating Benign Prostate Hyperplasia and not hair loss. GSK in December 2006 embarked on a Phase 3 six month study in Korea in an attempt to receive regulatory approval for Avodart to treat Male Pattern Baldness but it has since given up on its plans or has put them on hold for unknown reasons. Therefore, it is still not possible to get an Avodart prescription for Male Pattern Baldness from your doctor. In the meantime, you lose hair while the wheels of bureaucracy block the way.

What is the difference between Dutasteride and Finasteride? Dutasteride inhibits the activities of both the type 1, 2 5-Alpha Reductase enzymes unlike Finasteride which only inhibits type 2 and to a lesser degree type 1. These enzymes are responsible for the conversion of testosterone into DHT or dihydrotestosterone. DHT is the primary cause of prostate enlargement and hair loss. Dutasteride decreases levels of DHT by up to 90 percent after only two weeks making it a very powerful weapon against hair loss.

Note: DHT levels in the skin do not fall as dramatically as serum blood levels of DHT. DHT levels in the skin may be a more important factor in hair loss than serum blood levels.
