Hair Cloning To Treat Baldness
People suffering from pre-mature baldness can now relax as Scientists have discovered a new way of correcting baldness. The new way to treat baldness is cloning of hair. The researchers have revealed that the technique, known as follicular cell implantation, works by replicating remaining hair strands and it could eventually help bald people to regain a full head of their own hair.
The treatment however, may require more than 1,000 tiny injections to produce limitless supply of hair in extensively bald patients. None the less it promises to be quicker than the current hair transplant techniques. The researchers have also revealed that the treatment is also capable of re-growing a boundless supply o hair for individuals who have become bald during cancer treatment, onset of age or even from suffering severe burns.
In fact the trial results have indicated that the cell therapy can increase hair count in at least two thirds of patients after six months. The procedure for hair cloning is currently being developed by Intercytex, a British company based in Manchester, which is among many competing to find a cure for hair loss. The therapy is likely to be made available to patients within the five years, according to the researchers. This will be a boon for many as about 40 percent of men over 50 suffer from hair loss.
