Cloned hair...Pierluigi Santi?


#1

Two plastic surgeons who conduct research at the institute – Pierluigi Santi and his colleague Edoardo Rapposio have certified and should be ready to patent their findings of what is now known as Iso-9001 in about four months.But the end result of their discovery isn’t what they had in mind at the outset. Commented Santi - who is the Director of Reconstructive Surgery at IST , "… The crucial part lies in the “bulb” or root of the hair follicle. Each root can be divided in two…which in turn can regenerate into a new hair…which in turn can be subdivided again. In this way with one hair can be subdivided into many and a transplant can later occur that doesn’t rely on multiple hairs being taken off the scalp and re-distributed …Santi figures that with only 10 hairs acquired from one patient, the cloning process will generate enough follicles to make a full head of hair.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> (almost 2 years later and nothing of this DR.?) SOMEBODY HERE LIVES IN ITALY?..SOMETHING NEW ON PIERLUIGI SAINTI?

it’s quite “scam”.

I’m in contact with someone of IST; if it’s true that they have a big lack of money , the main trouble is the “tuning” of procedure for decent results .

So, at this time, you should consider this a little “proof of concept”.

I add …
as a general rule, you should not wait for any real improvement from Italy.

Maybe one future exception is CB-03-01 , currently in phase I (from Cosmo Pharmaceuticals) .
