List of questions for Dr. Roland Lauster


#1

Guys, how about a short list of questions to email to Dr. Roland Lauster.

Please no wise cracks/comments, garbage from or about Ironman and other irrelavant stuff.

Perhaps 7 to 8 questions will do. I’ll start off :

  1. Is the hair follicle you generate a fully functional follicle? Does it cycle from anagen <-> telogen as head hair would?

  2. Is the texture & thickness of the hair shaft the same as head hair? I read that in your animal models, the hair shaft diameter was thinner than normal for some reason. Is that still the case now or has it been overcome?

  3. Are clinical trials in progress currently as you have been quoted in the press? When will the results be published. Any hope that a Norwood 6 hair loss patient can be turned into Norwood 2?

  4. … add your questions please …

Please I ask that this thread not be filled with in-fighting and other nonsense. Once the questions are ready, I’ll email the guy and wait for a response.

Thanks!

Yeah, costs would be interesting.

Because i think NW6->NW1 would never be affordable.
Just think about it. They are not creating grafts, just hairs. So first they take your stem cells than they make like 50000 hairs out of it. Than they transplant 50 000 single hairs in your scalp. I think this would cost like 200 000 dollar and that would just be 4 dollars for every single Hair (a very fair price).

Oh no, don’t interrupt intelligent questions with too complicated things for some HS users!

@Freddie : Before its getting out of hands AGAIN just send the email

@Price : there is also a thinkable idea about stafette pricing

5000 - 12.000 hairs XXXXX Price
12.000 - 23.000 hairs XXXXX Price

Oh and btw the more people are doing stuff like Acell or Histogen or hair cloning whatever the more it will come down in price.

Just look at FUT Prices, they have gone down rapidly and the only reason why some surgeons could charge high extremely high fees right now is, because hairloss sufferers are often not educated about their possibilities they actually have right now.

When the hairloss community is getting more and more educated you will see drastic price changes

  4. Is the hair follicle generated subject to attack from DHT? Or will the hair be cultured from the back of the head so that its not affected by DHT.

  5. What is the approximate time to market for this product? In what year will it be released to the public. I know you’ve mentioned 5 years but the hair loss community has heard that ‘a cure is 5 years away’ so many times, its lost all meaning.

  6. Assuming it is released to the public, how much will it cost. I know its dependant on the amount of hair coverage required but how will the cost be structured (how much per graft?).

OK that’s it, I’m sending it in. I hope he gets it because its going through some secretary or something.
