Principally – right.
But there could be some essential problems occur:
- 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:
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.
ACell’s MatriStem Wound Care Matrix (“ExtraCellular Matrix – ECM) is currently available just in sheet and micronized particle (powder) form - here they are:
- 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.
