REPLICEL RESULTS ARE IN!!!!!! (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

posted by ven E-mail, 02.05.2012, 18:27

Thanks to whosoever posted this. I think whats happened is exactly what Hoffman himself pointed to and we should be aware of it.

"1Hoffmann: Phase I trials are about safety, so a successful trial is, of course, about safety. Most people on the outside are not interested in safety; theyíre interested in hair growth. For the regulators, the first thing we must prove is that itís safe. A successful trial will prove that itís completely safe, with no adverse effects like ganuloma or tumor formations.

2.A very successful trial would mean we see more hair growth at the levels we would expect to see in a patient treated with Rogaineģ. So, a range of 10 percent to 15 percent more hairs per centimeter square is what we would define as very successful. If we see even more hairs than what is expected from finasteride (Propeciaģ) treatments, then weíd be very, very happy. So first of all, itís a safety treatment. But secondary, we are also looking for hair density and more parameters linked to efficacy."

By the above points stated by the company itself - check point 1, Replicel is successful, not very successful as some equivalent to Rogaine would have been even though the trial was around safety primarily and not efficacy.

Their main intent was to check about safety. Note Hoffman himself says "Most people on the outside are not interested in safety; theyíre interested in hair growth. For the regulators, the first thing we must prove is that itís safe. A successful trial will prove that itís completely safe, with no adverse effects like ganuloma or tumor formations."

They have achieved the safety aspect but what he said about people on the outside, i.e all of us, is so on the mark.

Unfortunately, thats whats happened. We on the outside are very concerned about success and safety, whereas Replicel, to go ahead and not crash and burn, if the trials were unsafe, they would have been stopped right then and there.

Unfortunately, we will have to now wait for Phase 2 trials to see how the efficacy results and what they achieve. We all wished for a magical result which would somehow get efficacy and safety, all in onem but that was unlikely to happen.

Isn't that a story we are used to by now? Propecia - but causes such serious sides. Minox, but doesnt stop hair loss, plus sides then FUE but requires donor..FUT but requires donor and scars...BHT..too expensive and less effective..

I mean, if there is one thing we should have learnt by now, its all about patience. To those lucky enough to use Propecia, good luck. The rest of us are a bit more desparate for quick results.
