[Article in Polish]


In the trichological studies on the model of Wistar rats aged 4-5 weeks intraperitoneal vinblastine in doses of 0.008-0.030 mg/100 g of body weight caused initially mixed (dystrophic-telogenic) hair loss. After higher doses and longer drug administration the mechanism of hair loss was transformed to dystrophic. In both forms of hair loss signs of advanced diffuse alopecia were found.
