Dutasteride, a dual inhibitor of both type I and II 5α-reductases, is used to treat male patternhair loss (MPHL). However, patient response to dutasteride varies in each individual, thecause of which is yet to be identified. To identify genetic variants associated with responseto dutasteride treatment for MPHL, a total of 42 men with moderate MPHL who had beentreated with dutasteride for 6 months were genotyped and analysed by quantitative linearregression, case-control association tests, and Fisher’s exact test. The synonymous singlenucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs72623193 in DHRS9 was most significantly associatedwith response to dutasteride, followed by the non-synonymous SNP rs2241057 in CYP26B1.Additionally, variants in ESR1, SRD5A1, CYP19A1, and RXRG are suggested to be associatedwith response to dutasteride. Cumulative effect and interaction among these SNPswere presented in both additive and non-additive models.
