It is always difficult to interpret slides without the accompanying commentary. My interpretation - and this is purely my own, not substantiated - is that for 014 only the top left and bottom right quadrants of his head were treated (see the yellow highlights on the sketch). What Histogen may have wanted to show is the improvement in these quadrants compared to the non-improvement (deterioration?) in the other quadrants.
Nonetheless, the most important data to look at are the hair counts. These are measureable in an objective way and they show pretty good improvement.
I’ve always believed that Histogen was a bit ahead of its peers (Aderans, etc). The company has experience commercializing products. What worries me about Aderans is the fact that it’s led by a bunch of academics who are quite possibly more interested in the science of hair growth and by association the science of cell formation in the human body rather than the treatment of hair loss. I would hazard a guess that at Aderans many side experiments take place which may only be tangentially related to hair loss but are the subject of the researcher’s interests. I’ve seen this sort of thing happen when academics are given a huge budget and no firm deadline to come up with something. Aderans has been looking into this since 2002 and only recently have they started trials. Contrast this with Histogen which was formed in 2007 and have already conducted human trials.
