News on Follica (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

Fair point. Histogen has apparently have seen some de novo hair growth. Their progress has been so little for so long that I've begun to forget about them lately, to be honest.

But you are always bringing up your belief that their hairs aren't likely to last without repeated treatments. Have you changed your mind on that? Much of the reason we got into this debate is because you keep saying any gains from growth factors would need to be chronically boosted just to survive.

Yes, I do say that, and I believe it 100%. It goes along with everything I've learned in my rather advanced education in biochemistry and cell physiology (I'm also in a Master's program in Biotechnology right now, re-taking more updated versions of the Biochemistry and Cell Physio classes I took as an undergad and in a previous grad program).

Let me be very clear on my positions:

1) I firmly believe that growth-factor mediated growth (i.e., by adding growth factors in whatever form or by whatever means, short of adding new cells), will absolutely have to be chronically re-booted, to maintain the growth of the new or regenerated hairs.

2) I am absolutely fine with the above, as long as the treatment doesn't involve anything traumatic or dangerous to the scalp and follicles, like chronic abrasion. As long as you have a reliable way of growing and maintaining cosmetically impressive amounts of hair, and there is no collateral damage to the tissues or cells, it makes no difference to me whatsoever that you have to do repeat treatments. I am all in! If any of what I've ever written about this subject made you think otherwise, you haven't really been close attention to what I've been writing. My negativity about chronic re-treatments are a caveat ONLY for those treatments which are problematic for other reasons -- like a worrisome tendency to promote cancer/tumor growth, or a tendency to traumatize the tissue. (By the way, Histogen isn't 100% in the clear on the former, to be sure -- though I'm still somewhat hopeful about its potential.)
