Alopecia Medicamentosa

Coping with Hair Loss during Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy hair loss is one of the most physically and psychologically distressing side effects of cancer chemotherapeutic drugs and radiation. Alopecia Medicamentosa, the baldness that results from chemotherapy and radiation, is absolutely devastating to the mindset of male and female cancer patients. The threat of alopecia can cause some patients to refuse potentially curative or medically proven adjunctive chemotherapy.


Doctors underestimate hair loss problems

Most oncologists are not concerned about their patients' baldness because hair loss is generally transient and not life-threatening. Very often, they recommend that their patients wear hair wigs or hats. On the other hand, the suffering patients tend to fear hair loss as one of the dreaded side effects of their cancer treatment even knowing that it is potentially reversible. Even when a patient keeps his cancer a secret, sudden hair loss and the wearing of hair wigs or hats will probably clue any observer into recognizing that cancer is present. The psychological effect of hair loss among cancer patients often suppresses their immune system as much as the anticancer drugs and radiation themselves.

Thymuskin Forte Shampoo & Serum

Bovine- and hormone free thymic peptide agent

Today German and Austrian oncology clinics support their patients from experiencing the hair loss that occurs from the necessary prescribing of cytotoxic chemicals. They are doing it by having cancer patient’s shampoo, starting just before & during chemotherapy or radiation therapy, with a shampoo containing a thymic peptide agent and then following this immediately with applying a tiny amount of topically applied liquid serum containing a thymic peptide agent. The two products, packaged as a kit, are collectively called Thymuskin Forte Shampoo and Thymuskin Forte Serum Gel and are designed for direct application to the scalp.

(Quoted from an article written by Dr Morton Walker)
"Thymuskin is an effective preparation for the treatment of hair loss and is free of any side effects." (By Prof. Hagedom, Dir. of Dermtology)

Our Thymuskin Forte System helps to prevent hair loss in patients undergoing mild to moderate forms of chemotherapy. Therapy should be started at least one week prior and then continued during and immediately after chemotherapy has ended.

Treatment duration

Depending on the individual situation (kind and duration of chemotherapy and cancer), the daily treatment should be carried out until successful therapy without lost hair or in case of hair loss during therapy until hair is regrown. When hair is fully regrown, the treatment can be reduced to 2-3 times a week. In order to prevent a relapse, you can maintain this frequency. Later on you can step down to use only Thymuskin Shampoo, which also conatains the active thymic peptide complex.

If possible, we recommend to start the treatement BEFORE chemotherapy.

Start of treatment BEFORE chemotherapy

If possible start 4 weeks before chemotherapy with daily usage according to the standard recommendation. Thymuskin Serum application once daily (see also hair therapy guide download), use Thymuskin Shampoo at least 2-3 times weekly. Apply Thymuskin throughout the chemotherapy, often there are several regimes of it. After finalization of chemotherapy you can successively reduce application. First, reduce application of Thymuskin Serum to 3 times per week, then to 2 times, then once and then you can stop application – all in all application time is about 4 weeks. We recommend to use Thymuskin Shampoo furtheron.

Start of treatment DURING chemotherapy

Please use Thymuskin Serum twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening. Thymuskin Shampoo application according to standard recommendation at least 2-3 times weekly.

Start of treatment AFTER chemotherapy

Please use Thymuskin Serum twice daily for 8 weeks, once in the morning and once in the evening. Afterwards, please use Thymuskin Serum once daily. Also if you have the feeling of good regrowth as of the beginning, you can step down to application of Thymuskin Serum to once daily. Thymuskin Shampoo application according to standard recommendation at least 2-3 times weekly.
