Scientists in Japan have found a way to grow hair on bald mice. The breakthrough is raising hope for a potential cure for baldness.
The mouse hair grew after researchers transplanted bio-engineered tissue under the skin of the mice.
Researchers hope to have a comparable treatment for humans within 10 years.
The results are published in the science journal Nature Communications.
