» Seriously? WNT was discussed here countless times:
Just because the Histogen says they’re using “WNT signaling” to grow hair, doesn’t mean they (1) can prove that their particular exploitation of this technology is the optimum one; or (2) that they are actually growing significant amounts of hair, to create a cosmetically acceptable result that’s better than Propecia or Rogaine.
Just about anyone can SAY they’re using “WNT signaling”. But how do we know these people aren’t just latching onto the “flavor of the month” in hairloss research, to market a weak, first-generation product?
In other words, they may be implying that they’re offering us the Maserati of WNT signaling, when they’re really offering a Tata Nano.
But just because they label it a “WNT signaling” technology, they are able to milk the maximum amount of PR advantage and hype from it, while being held to a low standard for actual results.
Note: I’m not saying I know any of that to be true. But I am taking this with a healthy dose of skepticism.
Maybe their product really is revolutionary. But so far, even with the photos they’ve shown, they have a long way to go to prove that it’s revolutionary, or even something most people would want to shell out hard-earned money for.
Because their claims are exceptional, so also must their proof be exceptional, and so far, publicly at least, despite all the hype and fanfare, they have proven nothing to the public.
