Intercytex A Sponsor at Upcoming ISHRS Meeting


#1

Check out the ISHRS Program:

Intercytex is a sponsor at the upcoming Internation Society of Hair Resoration Surgeons Meeting.

It seems this would signal that Intercytex is creating a communication channel with the HT surgeons of the world, including reinforcing its existing one with Bosley, another sponsor.

Note the heavy participation by featured speakers specializing in cell biology.

Thanks for that news, HairKing.

This is actually a very promising development because it indicates that those who may be opposing HM or are trying to slow it down behind-the-scenes, are gradually being marginalized.

Now Intercytex is operating in the very “Belly of the Beast”!

I’d pay to see the look on Rassman’s face when he sees ICX is underwriting any meeting of the ISHRS. Can you imagine getting to be the one that introduces Rassman to Paul Kemp? “Hi, Im Paul Kemp, and no we have not killed innumerable lab animals, you jerk-off”.

The ISHRS meeting is right after the latest Intercytex financial report. I doubt Intercytex’s sponsorship of this particular meeting is merely coincidental :slight_smile: As far as Billy Bob Rassman, in this guy’s world there’s only three things that you can do: 1. take propecia, 2. use rogaine, 3. get a HT. Nothing else.

It’ll be interesting to see whether ICX releases info on preliminary Phase II test results at that time…

Guys,

Just think of how much money HM will take away from HTP surgeons & POWERFUL pharmaceutical companies….Do you really think they will go down without a fight ?


#7

I had read that Intercytex recently demonstrated that they were able to reproduce fully growing follicles in petri dishes, which is different than HM.

If this is true, then the cloned follicles could be transplanted manually by the ISHRS members who already have the training required to make transplanted hair look natural.

That would be a win/win for the ISHRS and Intercytex.

Injecting cells is a revolutionary idea,an idea that fills me so much hope.

Manually transplanting cloned follicles is nothing more then a remix of a heavily flawed procedure.I’d take XXXml of Nembutal over this b.s any day.

The pharmaceutical companies will just eat the loss, because they have lots and lots of lucrative drugs to fall back on.

The HT surgeons in the USA who are not part of the Bosley/ICX/Aderans network, will, however, not go down without a fight. They know they can’t stop this, but you can bet that some of them will do whatever they can to try to slow it down, working behind-the-scenes, out of public view.

Watch out, HT industry – we, the public, are watching YOU!!

Umm, Whatever…

There are a lot of scars in this world that could be filled in with the manual cloned follicle method. HM has not been discussed as an option to fill in scars such as strip scars from ht nor burn patient’s scalps.

Renovo (another British biotech) have some pretty interesting scar treatments in development.

Hey Sherlock,
These cloned manually planted hairs are going to have the same issues that transplanted grafts currently have. Injected cells bypasses all the problems associated with planting hairs.

Demon,

Will the injected cells grow in scar tissue? No?
The cloned ones will.

We need both methods.

Here’s a cut-and-paste from the ISHRS brochure link posted above. ICX’s sponsorship and the subject matter are at the bottom.

Anyone care to speculate as to where minoxidil fits into ICX’s program and why they would sponsor a lecture on it?

Professor Valerie A. Randall, BSc
PhD Sheff., CBiol, MIBiol, MIBMS

Professor of Biomedical Sciences, School of Life
Sciences, University of Bradford,
Bradford, United Kingdom
Professor Randall’s research area includes
regulation of hair growth, particularly androgen
effects. Her teaching topics include Cell Biology,
Pathology, Molecular Biology and Endocrinology at BSc, Msc and PhD
levels. She is the former president and secretary of the European Hair
Research Society, and a council member of the Institute of Biology
(UK). Professor Randall is also a member of the Society for Investigative
Dermatology, European Hair Research Society, and Society for
Endocrinology, among other medical associations. She has edited two
books, written 14 book chapters, and approximately 60 papers.

Supported in part by a grant from Intercytex.
Professor Randall will speak on “Research on the Dermal Papilla Cell and
Identification of Hair Follicle Channels That May Provide Medical Therapy
Options for Hair Loss: The Mechanism of Action for Androgens and Minoxidil.”

We?
I don’t need both,I just need the cells because I actually know what I am talking about.

Might is Right.Ultimately the moderator decides what is right & wrong regardless of what the facts are.

How can someone with your credentials be wrong? My apologies.

Sarcasm, the lowest form of wit.
I guess you have to find some way to divert attention away from your ultimate lack of knowledge.

Damon - hmmm.

I started this thread and posted a link to the upcoming ISHRS agenda. Maybe
I do “know” something. :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks for that… Good info.
