Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories join forces with A.N.D.E. in the “hair replacement” project

Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories has launched a collaboration with A.N.D.E. (Associazione Nazionale Displasia Ectodermica – or National Association of Ectodermal Dysplasia), a non-profit organization born in 1999 with the mission of looking after people afflicted by ectodermal dysplasia. Ectodermal dysplasia is a rare disease that strikes 1 person out of 100 thousand, is difficult to diagnose and is characterized by the irregular development of ectodermic tissues and organs, in particular of the teeth, hair, nails and sweat glands. This illness is characterized by hypohidrosis (reduction or absence of sweating), hypoplasia or aplasia of sweat glands, hypotrichosis (scarcity of hair), up to partial or total hair loss due to the reduction of hair follicles, and hypodontia, with the presence of an irregular and reduced number of teeth. In some cases, it has been described as atopic dermatitis. The hair is thin, sparse and generally blonde, and eyelashes and eyebrows may be thin or completely absent. Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories will offer those registered with the association particular discounts on the price of treatments and hair replacement solutions in all its centers in Italy. In turn, the A.N.D.E. non-profit organization will cover the costs for low-income patients. Moreover, the project will also feature a series of educational meetings - organized by both CRL and the family association (A.N.D.E. non-profit) - and will be supported by the commitment of both companies to promote specific research in the tricho-dermatological field. “We don’t dedicate enough time to the psychological consequences deriving from hair loss due to an illness or therapy. The aesthetic evidence is like a mark that constantly reminds you of the problem. It’s even harder when it’s an infant or child showing the signs”, says Stefano Ospitali, CEO of CRL. “Precisely for this reason, our company has decided to make its expertise in the field of hair replacement available and to offer concrete assistance through partnerships with the associations that deal with all the illnesses that cause hair loss, both directly and indirectly”.
