Androgen signalling prevents hair cell differentiation (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

posted by Freddie555, 06.02.2012, 03:29

I do not believe there is anything inherently different in balding skin than any other type of skin. If there was, you would not be able to grow transplanted hair in balding skin. So that is a red herring.

I'm also skeptical of exotic ideas of birthing female follicles (if there even is such a thing!). Maybe there's something to simulating Wnt or promoting Wnt production using lithium who knows. But in general I have low hopes for techniques attempting to chase down and mimic biochemical pathways.

I believe Replicel is on the right track in that they are bypassing the molecular reasons for hair loss altogether. They are replacing the defective cells responsible for hair cycling and hopefully regeneration.

Quite frankly if Replicel cannot deliver the goods, I'm giving up hope that we will have a cure for this condition in the next 10 years.
