HAHAHA! Well I sure wouldn’t mind that! Either way I could just shave the middle off! LOL! More eyebrow is always better than none. Man I’d kill to have it work for my eyebrows regardless if HM grew a little to much hair. I’d rather have them thick and bushy anyway. Wouldn’t bother me one bit. Sure would be the best thing that ever happened to me to learn Aderans Procedure worked for eyebrows as well. It would mean that my life would finally be restored and I can live in peace. Dank Iron-Man!

Another observation …


Aderans Holdings Co., Ltd. to Merge with Subsidiaries
Thursday, 18 Mar 2010 03:00am EDT
Aderans Holdings Co., Ltd. announced that it has decided to merge with its two wholly owned subsidiaries, including Aderans Co., Ltd. and Fontaine Co., Ltd. After the transaction, the Company will be the surviving company and the two subsidiaries will be dissolved, effective September 1, 2010.

June 2, 2010 - Update "To Our Shareholders"
Source: http://www.aderans.co.jp/hd/english/ir/message.html

It is indeed a pleasure to address shareholders visiting the Aderans Holdings website, and let me add that the support and encouragement of shareholders is very much appreciated, especially during these difficult times. My name is Tadao Otsuki, and I assumed the position of president and chief operating officer at Aderans Holdings on December 1, 2009.

In regard to business results, I must convey disappointing progress in fiscal 2010, ended February 28, 2010. On a consolidated basis, the Company posted net sales of ¥57,355 million and a net loss of ¥9,851 million. Regrettably, this performance precluded the distribution of year-end dividends. Please accept our sincere apologizes for not delivering the results shareholders were undoubtedly expecting.

Meanwhile, the companies of the Aderans Group launched drastic management reforms designed to achieve higher corporate and shareholder values and were rewarded with a positive response from the market. In its core business of wig sales to men and women in Japan, the Group applied a completely reformulated marketing strategy that included new brand logos for men’s and women’s products. This emphasis led to solid signs of performance recovery, especially in sales to new clients.

Additionally, in September, 2010, the Company will absorb the operations of Aderans Co., Ltd., and Fontaine Co., Ltd., and adopt a new name. The Company will make a fresh start as Unihair Company Limited. The Company has already begun organizational restructuring in its overseas business.

As a cohesive unit, management and employees throughout the Group will implement a new round of management reforms beginning in fiscal 2011 that will reshape the existing business model and reinvigorate the Group’s efforts to cement its position on the world stage as the No. 1 provider of hair-related solutions.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I ask for the continued support and encouragement of shareholders.

Tadao Otsuki
President and Chief Executive Officer
Aderans Holdings Co., Ltd.

Here you’ll find something HOW they considered the new company’s NAME:
http://www.aderans.co.jp/hd/english/ir/financial/pdf/meeting/41st_meeting_E_2.pdf

Anyway, according to the information above, the new company structure will look like as follows:


Source (origin) of the graphic above: http://www.aderans.co.jp/e/company/information/020723/index.html

And finally, here you’ll find the latest “Aderans” business report:
http://www.aderans.co.jp/hd/english/ir/financial/pdf/meeting/41st_meeting_E.pdf

All in all, I wonder what Mr. Tadao Otsuki actually meant by “The Company will make a fresh start as Unihair Company Limited. The Company has already begun organizational restructuring in its overseas business.”

Are they going to rename subsidiaries like “ARI” (“Aderans” Research Institute) or “BMI” (Bosley Medical Institute) as well?

Question is “Is this actually good for us”

There are some ideas.

Fresh Start : They know that Bosley was crap and HT are not the best thing, so they wanna get rid of there old stuff and be part of the new market with a new name.

The other thing and not that good for us, they will start all over again :frowning:

Seems you’re right - yet, even ARI have to restart their hair researches from scratch … :crying:

if the clinical trials they are conducting are successful why would they start all over?


#27

renaming the company doesn’t mean that they start all over again. they continue their development under brand new name from there where they end their development under old name. you must be naive to believe that they start all over again.

http://www.aderansresearchinstitute.com/ari_ourfuture.html


"Achieving a bioengineered hair loss solution, is not many years away; in fact, it is likely that before the end of this decade patients will have access to hair multiplication technology. We anticipate that it will be, like many cosmetic procedures, a same-day, in-office procedure."


#29

They wouldn’t start over on the FDA trials for anything short of a safety/efficacy problem.

They wouldn’t stop progress on the existing trials for anything but S/E problems or a money shortage.


#30

Good Post,
When was that statement on their website written?
Also, are they still recruiting for their phase 2?

This kind of info was on their website about year ago:
http://www.hairsite.com/hair-loss/forum_entry-id-55692.html

And yes, google gives out the address
http://www.aderansresearchinstitute.com/ari_ourfuture.html

but seems it’s old thing because they use now there information what you can find here
http://www.aderansresearchinstitute.com/ari_ourvision.html

* probably they forgot to delete this old file from their server

btw… stupid question but when the new decade starts? is it started already when 2010 came or new decade starts 2011? if it starts 2011 they they should come out their hm thing before the new year but i believe 99% it’s not gonna happen’

ok. the end of this decade is 2010 and here is the reason why they present now
http://www.aderansresearchinstitute.com/ari_ourvision.html because their product isn’t ready for market yet.

and if you asked

Where is the difference between “our future” and “our vision” ? :smiley:

vision means more near future.
future might be more like mission and has longer period than vision. and if they changed information on their site then they don’t believe they can get this product redy very soon. but it’s just words game.

which site i like the most? at the moment i like the older one what they don’t present anymore because then they had only 6 months to bring this cure to market but now we know it’s not gonna happen. if you will ask this question after 6 month then i probably like the site what they present now.


#34

» Also, are they still recruiting for their phase 2?

The answer is definitely – YES!
http://www.aderansresearchinstitute.com/ari_clinicupdates.html
“If you are interested in participating in the Phase 2 study, please select a city for further information.”

Here are some interesting user comments, which I collected in the past and brought them in a chronological order:

2009

I called the number form the web site. This appears to be the Aderans trial. The site [TKL Research] lists the trial as ongoing and the procedure they describe sounds exactly like Aderans.

  • It is not a placebo based or double blind FDA type of study.
  • Everyone gets the real procedure,
  • you cannot be on current hairloss meds
  • and it is for the crown and not the front.

Sounds like they may be making slight modifications to the procedure on the fly in trying to determine what works best (assuming that it works at all).

· ZZ
10/5/09 1:51 pm
FYI When I told them I was on meds and couldn’t participate (not that I would at this stage) they asked if I wanted to go on a list in case a follow up trial allowed those using meds to participate. I declined for now. I believe the trial calls for 13 visits. If anyone else decides to call (the lady was very nice), can you ask if there is any internal feedback on the results yet?

2010

K guys. Here’s what I know:
I called the number on the Aderans site for the clinical trial nearest to me.
I talked to a lady from the research facility who was extremely nice. She said they hadn’t started recruitment just yet, but that the study itself should start in May. Overall it lasts for about a year. She said that the majority of the procedure is done during the first few visits and then its mostly just monitoring afterwards.

I was encouraged because she said the entire team at the research facility was excited to start it because it was a “cool study.” She went on to describe the procedure (of which we are already familiar) and was in awe of the overall concept. I was REALLY encouraged (although I tried hard to play dumb) because she said that once trials get to “them” (meaning the research company), the procedre has already been tried on people before and they are usually pretty sure it works. I believe her exact words were something like “Oh yeah, they are pretty sure.”
That being said, she is just an employee and is not given any information with which to make that decision. She just knows that they are a late-term facility so by the time trials get to them they are usually safe and at least minimally effective.

Everyone else should call their respective facility and try to 1) get more info and 2) SIGN UP!

· Joey
5/2/10 12:07 pm
I spoke to a representative from Aderans about signing up for their clinical trial. She said they would be changing their website in May with new clinical trials. Encouraging information?

· Shooter
5/2/10 1:55 pm
Joey, can you elaborate on that a little? I thought they already added the new locations to the map on their website.

· Ritchie
5/4/10 4:34 pm
I just signed up for consideration on the Aderans clinical trials here in L.A. I still have to go through a screening process to see if I qualify. They said that trials would be starting shortly. It would be a year long process, and I would be compensated $1400. I hope I get chosen. If I do, I will keep everyone posted as to my progress. Wish me luck….

· 4thHorseman
5/13/10 10:51 am
Just received this email last night from clinical trials for the Aderans Project in Los Angeles. I will keep you posted as to if I qualifiy as a candidate.

“Hi —–,
I just gave you a call at the number you had provided via ClinicalConnections.com:
I wanted to let you know that the Hair Transplant study just opened yesterday, if you are still interested, please give me a call so that we can see if you are qualified to participate.”

· 4thHorseman
5/13/10 12:44 pm
Just quick follow up to my last post. I called Clinical Connections. Unfortunatley I do not qualify for the study. Since I have already had HT I am not a candidate at this time. I feel it is a good time for someone who has NOT had HT to call this company that is working with Aderans Phase 2 study, and see if they qualify for the study.

· Ryan
5/13/10 9:32 pm
Like Washington I’m interested in what they meant by Hair Transplant study?

· 4thHorseman
5/13/10 10:56 pm
Ryan it is the same trial the Ritchie is going in for (Aderans). I was not a candidate due to previous HT procedures. They are calling it a “Hair Transplant Study”.

· Ritchie
5/19/10 2:20 pm
Shooter, Thanks for checking in on me. I went for the evaluation yesterday, but was disqualified because my blood pressure reading was too high. It was 146/95, and normal is 120/80. They said that I should see my doctor first about getting my blood pressure under control, them maybe I could come back. I’m so bummed….

· Shooter
5/19/10 5:31 pm
Sorry to hear that Ritchie. At least you tried though!
Were you able to learn anything about the procedure at all?

Wasn’t there a fellow on these boards who was part of the Aderans trials?

Did he stop posting entirely?

One of his last comments:

Can’t reveal much.
(Got in trouble.)
Hair growth is good… not great. (Jan. 18, 2010)
I’d estimate about a 20% increase in density in the test area.
(Meaning about one new follicle for every 4 existing follicles.)
They say that should increase with time. Let’s see.

I never had any TOTALLY bald areas… just thinning.
There are two test areas on my scalp.
Both are showing the same results.
The researchers don’t tell me the results. I’m just going by my own observations with a mirror and a magnifying glass.
One small area originally had 20 hairs. Now it has 25.
That’s actually a 25% increase.
I also notice these very small colorless hairs created (like peach fuzz) that I’m not counting yet. Hopefully they’ll develop too.
My name was revealed on ANOTHER website. So I won’t be talking about techniques at all… just results. And pix are strictly forbidden.

I looked closely at the new hairs again.
They look completely normal to me… color and direction… as the scaffold intended. I’m glad it works for thinning areas. No shock fallout like HT.
The tiny colorless vellus hairs seem darker now too… but sooooo thin and short.

BTW - Here you’ll find HOW and WHEN all started …

As i said before 25% increasing is awesome :slight_smile:

I was wondering what would happen if someone would combine Ari and Histogen :slight_smile:

Would be fun ^^

#39

What I do not understand how Aderans announces that NW5-6 can be treated by their product. The results shown do not recover all the hair.
What is the difference between JiGami C and JiGami N?


#40

Yes i have to agree. Why do they always give some blabla but never answer all the Questions without phrases.

I just want answers to these questions.

  1. Will it work for everybody
  2. Can it give a full NW7 a full head of hair with perfect wet density
  3. Will the new grown hair be forever?
  4. Will the hair have its normal texture?

Cause what i seee right now is, thet it will work with diffuse patterns like most of the people actually have.

Dont get me wrong iam really thankful for this informations but iam not getting simple and straight answers to my questions and thats pi**ing me off.

And i dont want answers like " theoretically yes" i just want proof and straight answers.

Thats the reason why these Handouts are not getting me in festival mood.And the already got a timeline for market entrance? i bet in the next handout this will be deleted :wink:

Another question is "WHats with patients who are now in their 20s and are 30 years or older when Ari will put its thing on the market, will those people get their hair back?

IMHO they should just expand the trials and give a full procedure to some NW7 guys in their 60s or 70s who suffered baldness for more then 20 years without medication.

Cause honestly iam sick of all the 2 square centimeter bullsh*t. Lets give it a try on a full head, cause now its not about some side effect we are long over this.

Stop this “Hooray we got 50 new hairs on 2 cm Bullsh+t” lets go for the complete head and see what this will bring
