Honestly, it only takes a couple of months for a publication to pass peer-reviewal at the most. In fact it usually goes faster if you have experience in writing papers which I am sure Jahoda and his team have.
In the scale of things, I think that that is NOT a lot of time at all. Particularly when you consider how slowly hair grows and that the cell cultures themselves already take several months before they can even be injected.
The hair they have grown is so miniscule that it does not even pass the epidermis and is not even visible. Do you really think that they have turned invisible hair growth into something cosmetically viable in a matter of weeks?In my opinion that is even way beyond wishful thinking. In fact I think it is quite doubtful that Jahoda will be able to transform these preliminary results into any kind of viable treatment any time soon. I give it 2 years before they can even begin with clinical trials on humans.
[quote]And now that you know that it’s a study instead of an up-to-the-minute press release do you agree that they might actually have some even better information regarding some ongoing study they are in the middle of right now but since the study isn’t completed yet they can’t get that info published yet?
And if you do agree that this is possible might it also be possible for Dr. Nigam to get that up-to-the-latest-minute info from Dr. Jahoda and Dr. Christiano and apply that info to treatments right now?
And if they have up-to-the-minute info that is an improvement over the info they just got published wouldn’t the up-to-the-minute info almost certainly be a major breakthrough since the information they just released is already a minor breakthrough?
I understand that I’m speculating and wishful-thinking but doesn’t it seem like Dr. Nigam could possibly get some up-to-the-minute info (from Dr. Jahoda) that is not ready for scientific publishing yet but could make a big difference to people like you and I right now in terms of improving Dr. Nigam’s treatments substantially?
agreed, it seems rather unlikely that they could have timed this so accurately.
I actually thought this news was based on a press release rather than an actual publication. I only just saw News’ link to the publication.

Hairman you yourself have stated that these published studies are at least 6 months old because the studies are published at least 6 months, and perhaps even a year or more, after the completion of the study. This means that Chritiano and Jahoda could actually have advanced their growth research beyond the point in the published study. Do you think it’s possibile that they could actually be further along than this published study indicates?
Also, I do not really think it would be possible for Jahoda and Christiano to pinpoint within a matter of days of them speaking at the symposium the timing of when their study would be published or even if it would be published.
