Bulk hair follicle germ growth holds promise for treating baldness


#1

New article, a method for growing thousands of hair follicle germs, could this be it? Works on mice (as always), don’t know when we’ll see it in humans but if they can grow large numbers of follicles in the lab and transplant them on the scalp then this could be the cure we seek.

They are the ones using the chemical from McDonald’s fries to provide oxygen to the hair follicle germs.

So this could be a hoax or there might be something to this.
NewAtlas usually doesn’t post non-credible info but it should be interesting to see if this pans out.

@epiker0 This is not a hoax, and it’s not new either. This hair regeneration research by Dr Fukuda at Yokohama National University has been going on for a few years, and there have been lots of reports about it.
