Great news, thanks.

» Great news, thanks.
awesome post, interesting at the end bout the pharm companies claiming they have been working with the pixie dust as well, they will probably try and steal the rights and glory that this may potentialy have, they are disgusting ,

I do take stories with scepticism but that part where they say that he needs to clip the nain 3times a week is amazing :slight_smile: Imagine you would need to visit your hair dresser every week or so wow!! What a cool thing!! :slight_smile:

This is good news, Acell has stated they products for humans will be released later this year. But I wonder if such a quick turnaround is possible; starting clinical trials in May and releasing the product by December? Hopefully, they’ve already been doing human trials.

Also, the guy who’s critical of the powder says that the growing of the finger isn’t anything special since no bone was re-grown. I wonder where hair follicles can be placed- more advanced than just regrowing skin, but not as complex as regrowing bone? I hope so.

At the very least, since most of the human body is covered with hair of some kind, any regenerated skin that also includes regenerated follicles will be very promising news for us.

Even if Acell can’t ever regrow a single hair follicle, it would still help us in a big way if it could just close the stip HT wounds without much scarring.

They are also trying it on a wounded solider.

If they treat a man for burns with ACELL pig-bladder extract powder, and several months later he has the normal vellus hair on the skin----like we all have covering our bodies (look very close in good light and you will see that youre covered in vellus hairs) we might just have something that is very worthy of further research for sure.

If it does grow the normal hair back in whatever area of the body its applied (I.E. A man has a burn on his leg, and gets ACELLE’D :slight_smile: and the skin regrows and the normal leg hair regrows pretty much like the other leg), we really might have a winner—at least for the donor area to make more donor-like hair.

Its good that this is being tested in humans, and I (for one) wish them good luck.

Where can I see that benji?

It seems very promising but I don’t want to get my hopes up. The results with the burn victims/soldiers will be very telling. Of course if it can regrow skin/hair in other parts of the body then it’d be simply a matter of dermabrading our scalp applying the pixie dust and get our full head of hair back. Almost sounds too good to be true.

Then if it can give me immortality I’ll be a happy camper. :smiley:

There is a pic of hair regrowing on a deep wound on a dog’s leg. We are hoping something similar happens in people, but ACELL’s pig-bladder-extract-powder hasn’t been tested in humans yet.

Here is a very impressive picture of a sadly hurt cat…regrowing skin and fur on the wound, http://www.acell.com/vetcases/lucille.html

Horsefur regrown on a horribly wounded animal (how in the world did THAT happen to the poor horse?), http://www.acell.com/vetcases/classy.html

These arent people, but can you see why some folks are excited by the possibility of “light” wounds (like FUE holes) being able to regenerate hairs with the application of this substance in human beings? It may or may not work, but its going to be tested on burn victims and anything that can help burn victims is a good thing. If it can regrow some hair for cosmetic purposes, so much the better. Im not going to go out and slaughter a pig for its bladder and try to make a powder or anything, but I hope it works…


#16

I mean, wow :slight_smile: If it really grows whole finger then problems solved, we just cut our head out, put the powder in and have it regrow with full hair :slight_smile:

But where does it say those animals wouldn’t have regrown working hair follicles without the powder?

There’s something that doesn’t seem right about that dog picture!

The last picture in the series shows the wound after 2 weeks of Acell.

Strange thing is not only has a lot of skin regrown around the periphery of the wound . . .

And not only have functioning follicles grown in that skin . . .

But the follicles also have had time to produce fur of some length.

And all in the space–as the caption says–of 2 weeks??

Yes I have seen the dog pictures. They are interesting. The main difficulty is going to be the fact that the hair probably will be the same it was before and thus will have hard time regenerating as DHT and immune system attacks it again.

If this was not a problem then it could be interesting
