This is a challenge for Dr. Hitzig and Dr. Cooley.
Thanks for your answers Dr. Hitzig.
Regarding full restaurations,
You say that autocloning is extremely tedious at this time. Could you please specify? How much time do you need to pluck a single hair and plant it in the recipient site? Is it very difficult to pluck a hair? Cooley says he did 1500 hairs on a female patient (I don’t know if they were 500 plucked hairs that multiplied to 1500).
Okay, lets suppose it would be very slow to perform a full restauration now (besides, a very bald person doesn’t have enough donor to do a full restauration in a single pass).
Then I propose you a “progressive full restauration”.
I am going to call it “The HM Challenge”.
Get a very bald person, who only has around 10.000 hairs at the back of the head. Take photos before any procedure.
First stage: you pluck all the 10.000 hairs, and plant them in a location of choice.
First Wait: wait 6/12 months to allow for recipient follicles to grow, and harvested sites to regenerate. Now this person has 20.000 hairs, or even more (you told Kobren that if you plant just 1 plucked hair, 3 hairs can grow!!).
First photos: At 6/12 months, you can already take photos of this patient and present them as very clear proof of the potential of your technique. These photos will no doubt make history.
also, these 12 months waiting has allowed you and Cooley to improve the autocloning technique. and you will apply these improvements at the second stage to speed up the process.
Second stage: pluck again the original 10.000 hairs and even the new 20.000 hairs. This way you could double again the number of hairs, or at least, increase them by 50%.
Second wait: as before
Second photos: as before
Third stage, etc…: until full restauration is reached.
Of course, you can stop the iterative process anytime (note that each phase is more labour intensive because it involves more and more hair) when enough proof has been compiled and everyone is satisfied or when the patient gets tired.
I propose Dr. Jones as supervisor of the whole process to make it even more credible (we at Hairsite believe that Dr. Jones is very honest after he made two experiments and admitted failure in both). If you, Dr. Hitzig, and Dr. Cooley prefer to keep your technique secret (the “know how” ) , its okay, then Dr. Jones would simply check the patient before and after each phase.
Alternatively, an sceptic like Dr. Rassman would be a good “supervisor”.
Or several doctors.
How about it, Dr. Hitzig, do you like the idea?
