If anyone still think that ICX-TRC will reach the market or even go through phase 3 should read this article written by Kemp et al 2008. They pretty much talk trash about icx-trc which they dont see as efficient or suitable as treatments for humans and the need for something better and more effective (protohairs). Here are some quotes:
“Hair regeneration using implanted follicular cells has been demonstrated experimentally in a variety of animal models, but the methods are inefficient. A rapid and efficient method of hair regeneration is necessary for human hair restoration.”
“However, the means to implant DP cells such that hair formation is efficiently and reliably induced coontinues to be a difficult challenge.”
“Thus, while these systems are valuable for demonstrating the principle of hair induction by DP cells, they do not provide a means to efficiently hair in the human scalp.”
So either they can use the protohair technology in phase 3 (not likely at all) or we wont see any hair growth treatment from ICX in ten years. They are back at square one.
