Could someone please explain to me exactly what Gho has invented? (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

posted by Freddie555, 10.04.2011, 23:02

Histogen is a kind of cocktail of cellular growth factors, and it may have
all kinds of adverse effects and side-effects,

Their safety trials went very well. Not a single adverse reaction. I'm pretty sure their current trials for efficacy will also bare that out.

Can't really speak about the FDA beaurocracy. But if their trials prove safe enough, in theory we can just take a vacation to one of the countries they plan to setup their clinics in and get it done there.

The reason I think it's naive to assume this will work as an injectible is
that once the injections stop, whatever progress was made in terms of
generating new follicles, will become susceptible to DHT.

We'll I'm already on Avodart and will stay on it. So there's no problem there. Bare in mind their results show that with a single shot, hair counts and thickness continued to increase 1 year after the mark - without any DHT blocker. I'm inclined to think that adding a DHT blocker would give a massive boost to the outcome.

So the exposure to Histogen has to be regular and long-term, in my opinion.

Long term yes, regular remains to be seen. Assuming it does get to the US, what's the problem with getting one shot a year or two? The misery of hair loss is such that I'd do 1 shot a month without batting an eyelid.

And the photos DON'T show patients
whose scalps have been treated with this stuff.

That's because they have not done their efficacy trials to fine tune the best dosage and frequency of application I assume and don't want people jumping to conclusions and skoffing at their product.

That and some mouse/rat studies, I think.

No that's human scalp.

laboratory evidence to back it up, which, at best, doesn't even show good
results, just slightly better than Propecia results.

If its slightly better than propecia and its effect is additive to propecia, damn right its significant. There sure as hell isn't anything out there that even comes close to propecia/avodart right now in terms of keeping you hair.
Don't you agree : (one twin on dutasteride, the other on nothing. 5 year time line)
