Anybody else losing hope with Replicel? (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

posted by mell, 23.04.2012, 06:09

Looks like they have a lab already set up and a little info on how long it takes to culture.

"Summary  Minimal surgical invasion: just a 4 millimeter tissue biopsy is required vs. a 4-6 inch scalp skin harvest from the back of the head.

 Untapped female market: RepliCel offers a drug-free, minimally invasive procedure women would consider.

 New hair + old hair follicle regeneration: not just new hair-regeneration of dormant existing hair follicles.

 In theory, 100% restoration of hair could be possible: because of the minimally invasive nature of the RepliCel(TM) treatment, multiple treatments are possible.

The RepliCel(TM) Procedure – Simple Yet Powerful – The RepliCel(TM) procedure involves the isolation of dermal sheath cup cells from a small skin biopsy (approximately 4 millimeters in diameter) taken from an area on the back of a patient`s scalp that still grows healthy hair and is resistant to androgen activity. The biopsy is obtained in an operating theatre by a qualified physician.

The incision is then closed with sutures that are removed approximately 12-14 days later. The biopsy is placed in a sample collection kit and shipped in a medical grade shipping container to a current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) compliant laboratory in Austria for cell replication. Upon receipt of the patient skin biopsy, hair follicles are removed by cutting away the skin epithelium and “plucking” the whole hair unit from the surrounding dermal tissue.

The hair follicle bulb, including the follicular dermal sheath cup, is detached from the rest of the hair follicle. The dermal sheath cup cells are isolated and placed in a proprietary culture medium for up to three months, producing millions of new cells. RepliCel`s proprietary culture medium encourages the cells to grow and proliferate.

Once enough cells have been replicated, the cGMP compliant laboratory prepares the patient kit, which is then shipped to the physician for the injection of the cells into the patient. Once injected, it is anticipated that the cells will lead to the formation of new hair follicles and will rejuvenate existing quiescent hair follicles that have been damaged or miniaturized.

Summary – RepliCel`s technology has the ability to completely change the hair loss industry.

No longer will patient`s need to undergo lengthy transplant surgeries that involve the removal of large strips of hair or be locked into taking a drug for the rest of their lives.
