Follica DIY (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

posted by KO, 02.12.2011, 22:26

Is anybody still doing this? In earlier years people did it with sanding, gefitinib, and immunosuppression. However, Follica has been focusing on Lithium Gluconate being tried on humans.

I am thinking about doing this, But I don't have a distinct bald spot (yet) to try it on, so perhaps I may pick the back of the vertex to do a little experiment.

Earlier, I noticed that people were waiting 3 days after wounding to start addition of the topical, however according to the Follica patent, Lithium is applied immediately after dermabrasion and continued twice daily until day 11. It is only with *deep wounding*, like a 4mm punch biopsy that they wait three days prior to application of the topical.

Is anyone interested in starting clinical trials of our own? :)

If you're opposed to this, please just don't respond. Only for those interested in doing it.


[00673| Lithium treatment regimens combined with the 2 different types of integumental perturbation are used in this protocol. [00674| In this protocol, on Day 0 the first integumental perturbation is with dermabrasion (DA); Lithioderm (also referred to in this section as "drug " or "product") is applied topically immediately following DA and then continued twice daily through the second dose on Day 1 1.

[00675] On Day 14, the second type of integumental perturbation, i.e. , a full thickness excision (FTE) biopsy (also referred to as "punch biopsy"), extending to the level of the subcutaneous fat, is performed. The drug will have been discontinued after the final dose on Day 1 1 (2 days prior to this procedure). Application of drug begins again on Day 17, and continues twice daily through to the end of Day 34, with a final dose on Day 35. See the intervention schedule below.

[00676] The first biopsy on Day 14 is a full thickness excision that is being combined with drug (Lithioderm or placebo) to evaluate if this different integumental perturbation combined with pharmacologic modulation by lithium induces follicular neogenesis. A time-point that is three days post-biopsy (Day 17) is selected for the beginning of drug dosing. Nineteen days of treatment post biopsy is chosen.

[00677] Because the SmPC of Lithioderm indicates that its topical application is generally well tolerated when the drug is applied twice daily for 2 months in the treatment for seborrheic dermatitis, it is postulated that the increased possibility of catching cells that are receptive (before the inductive window for follicular neogenesis may be closed) outweighs the risk of dosing for a few extra days.
