A blog on ACELL in boston.

“At the ISHRS meeting, two doctors presented its use in plucked hairs. Hairs were plucked out of the beard or side hair and amongst these hairs the best ones were identified. The ACell was applied to the plucked hairs and then placed into recipient sites. Some of these hairs grew (less than 50%), but the good news is that supposedly the site where the hair was plucked also grew out a hair. The data is very sketchy and there is clearly no well identified process — no right way or wrong way to do this. But in theory, new hairs come from the process. If what was presented is accurate, then the dream of something for nothing (hairs that are essentially replicated) produces more hair than what was there prior to the procedure.”

That organization is widely viewed as a joke among medical professionals

And which doctors are actually performing this technique? Did they offer any (real) “warranty”?

this could be the best answer ever heard from my ears… I’m hoping is true

now (I looked your links) seems that those doctors have a way to boost the HT procedure, I wonder if even other docs will follow this way and if they’ll reach some good results, just to regrowh even a 50% donor could be a good jump forward

what do you think about that? there are not FDA approval required or something else right? if this work this will be avaiable by many docs in the world, right?

Principally – right.

But there could be some essential problems occur:

  1. Currently, it seems that ACell Inc. has for its products an exclusive marketing and distribution agreement with is just ONE company (Medline), who is marketing and distributing the by ACell Inc. manufactured products:


Resp. http://www.acell.com/mkt_partner.php

  1. As far as I know, ACell’s products (“MatriStem” etc) are currently NOT in every country “FDA approved”. That means, currently, it COULD be difficult for some HT surgeons or dermatologists to get ACell products.

  2. ACell’s MatriStem Wound Care Matrix (“ExtraCellular Matrix – ECM) is currently available just in sheet and micronized particle (powder) form - here they are:

http://www.medline.com/irj/catalog/search?_txt=MatriStem+&_id=true&_mfs=true&_ms=true&_xs=false&_tso=false&_lfo=false&_cat=&_mfn=&_gn=false&_srt=&_clog=MEDLINE&_st=0&_lt=10&_adv=false&_rv=1

  1. IMHO – both forms, sheet and micronized particle (powder) form, are NOT really applicatively in the HT field, resp. for HT and/or “Hair Cloning” procedures. More applicative forms would be such ECM’s in fluid and/or gel form.

As far as I know, Dr. Cooley and Dr. Hitzig try to develop a fluid and a gel ECM application with ACell’s MatriStem. That means, to be successful with just the sheet or powder form of ACell’s MatriStem, I do not expect any great success out there in the HT field with “ACell”. That means, WITHOUT a workable protocol, application and EXPERIENCE:

As far as I know, Dr. Jerry Cooley is working with ACell since April 2009, and Dr. Gary Hitzig is working with ACell since September 2008, when the FDA approved it for use. That means, these two docs are currently the only one who have the most experience with ACell’s products and its utilization.
