HAIR LOSS: IS THIS THE CURE? U.S. PATENT FOR COMPOSITION TO STIMULATE AND INDUCE HAIR GROWTH

Someone please tell us what this means in plain English:

Composition for stimulating and inducing hair growth
Document Type and Number:
United States Patent 5597575
Abstract:
This application proposes a new topical treatment for the stimulation and induction of hair growth as well as for preventing further hair loss. These pharmacologic results would be achieved by stimulation of an inactive hair follicle or by reversing the dysfunction of the hair follicles or by improvement of the general physiologic state of the scalp skin. It would also stimulate the maturation and differentiation of those cells specifically involved in hair growth either directly or by stimulating the organelles and supporting structures associated with the hair follicle. The topical composition comprises vitamin D3 or various nitro-benzoic acids esters thereof, or the biologically active metabolites of vitamin D3 preferabiy affixed, during preparation to microparticulate charged non-metaliic microparticles and aloe. The final concentration of vitamin D3 in the composition is 0.5% or 500,000 IU by volume. To this composition other agents, vitamins, aminoacids, trace elements or minerals, or polysaccharides can be added in nontoxic amounts. In a trial of a series of patients treated with the composition all were noted to nave cessation of hair loss followed by hair regrowth.

Basically what they are saying is they believe that their product will either SHOCK a hair follicle from death ( Mary Shelley would be so proud) or stimulate weak follicles into being better performers.
Revival of the dead is delusional. If a follicle is having difficulty performing it sometimes can be attributed to a topical suppressant, such as build up of oils, dirt, dirt in oil, compression (hats), irritant to shampoos, conditioner, & styling products. In short keep your scalp clean!!!
If you have a GENETIC predisposition to balding how in earth can a topical product change that???
