Histogen Trial Shows 73% Increase in Hair After One Year and One Injection

Histogen, a regenerative medicine company launched in 2007, has announced an encouraging follow-up to their pilot study from last year.

And it is good. Trialists were given only one application of Histogen’s Hair Stimulating Complex (HSC), and in some cases gained 73% more hair in the application area.
HSC seems to be a relabeled version of their ReGenica product line, and is essentially a soup of fibroblast cell secretions– the same growth factor-rich cells that produce the extracellular matrix (ECM) components used by companies like ACell. Histogen claims a “proprietary bioreactor” that coaxes cells into embryonic states …

Regrowing hair with self-mutilation, Jackalopes and stem cells

50 years ago, the late cancer researcher Charles Breedis was taking a scalpel to the backs of rabbits at a University of Pennsylvania lab. Under a grant by the National Cancer Institute, he was investigating the link between healing and the Shope papilloma virus, a carcinogenic pathogen similar to HPV in humans .. Dr. Breedis had observed the first recorded instance of follicular neogenesis, a phenomenon in which new, fully functioning hair organs develop as a biproduct of trauma to the body.

A few years ago, it seemed like Intercytex was going to provide mankind with the definitive solution to hair loss. The hair regeneration therapy, known as ICX-TRC, showed great promise: it was going to be cheaper, less uncomfortable and more effective than hair transplants. Results from clinical trials looked good and commercial application seemed to be only a few years away.
But recently, Intercytex has been oddly quiet about their hair loss cure. Speculation and rumors concerning the company and the product still circulate the web, but actual data is disappointingly …

Hair Loss Video – MTV True Life: “I’m Losing My Hair”

MTV recently highlighted emotional struggles with hair loss in a documentary they regularly air, called “True Life”. This segment was about a 25 year old Floridian male coping with pattern loss that began in his teens. He had previously employed well-tread baldie tricks like sunglasses-on-the-hairline, which is a bit like bedazzling your goiter with diamonds, but no sleights of hair could save him from his atomic social bombing:
Girls at party: How old are you?
Hair Loser: 25.
Girls: plus..?
Hair Loser: 25 plus nada. Plus nada.
Girls: (laugh)
Hair Loser: [..] I’m officially out of …

Trial Volunteers Needed For Natural, Topical Hair Loss Treatment

The goal of HairGen is to reduce hair loss to non-MPB levels, while also creating a healthy scalp environment that may potentially promote thicker hair and/or regrowth.

The herbs used in HairGen are all wild-harvested, which, while more costly, ensures that each ingredient is of the very finest quality. All of the herbs are distilled into liquid extracts via pure organic grape spirits, and the alcohol will then be removed to ensure that no damage is done to the scalp.

The alcohol can be removed due to the unique cutting-edge liposomal delivery system that uses phospholipids to increase scalp permeability.
