Abstract:Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be effective for treating androgenetic alopecia (AGA); albeit, its efficacy in men and women is still debated. We conducted meta-analyses to determine PRP efficacy in men and women separately. Studies were identified after systematically searching for trials that investigated PRP monotherapy for AGA in men and women separately. We included trials that studied PRP injections on hair density and/or hair diameter.
