Remember that the trialists in the preclinical trials were ONLY THINNING. No bald scalps were treated as far as I can remember, and the results were just Minoxidil-Class.
But Naughton, in the 2nd video, is boldly talking about timelines “to get a full head of hair”, no less.
Also, she seems satisfied with the efficacy observed in the preclinical trials and speculates using new sessions to add density, but at this point it is pure fantasy to speculate about this, because she doesn’t know if the results will be additive (most probably they won’t, as it happened with ICX-TRC).
She seems satisfied with the efficacy in the preclinical trials, and she doesn’t talk about improving the efficacy per injection.
She has not said anything about higher doses or improved formulations. Just repeated sessions. This seems to mean that the results we have seen so far can’t be improved rising the dose or improving the formulation, and its necessary to wait 3 months and inject again, and hopefully, see new hairs.
It seems that she aims to reproduce full heads of hair with the current level of efficacy. I think this is impossible.
As you see, everything is unknown, but Dr. Naughton is wet-dreaming about people flying to Asia in 2013 to get “full heads of hair”.
It is true that Histogen has done some good things. They have published pictures, which are top-notch, and they are proceeding quite fast, doing trials in foreign countries to cut-down costs, and speed everything up…
also, they are going to test HSC on 50 trialists in Asia, in Phase I-II, so these are important trials.
But the results are soso, and lately, I have seen a manipulative trend that reminds me of past charlatans. And I don’t like it.
Regarding Washenik, I was very hard against him in the past, when he was constantly advertising HTs for Bosley, promising HM-timelines that never materialized.
I said that “Washwenik was pathetic” after that sad interview when he dedicated most of the time to say how good were Propecia and Minoxidil.
But now things have changed. ARI is doing multicentre Phase II trials in USA, ON VERY BALD PEOPLE, MEN AND WOMEN!!! It seems its 100 trialists.
And Washenik is not giving interviews anymore (afaik). This means no propaganda, but real progress.
» I truly don’t understand your resentment towards Histogen. They’ve been
