I hope our German posters will get more info for us.

A German company, PromoCell, is now marketing a Human Dermal Papilla Cell culture system for hair loss that combine normal human follicle dermal papilla cells with PromoCell´s Follicle Dermal Papilla Cell Growth Medium and subculture reagents.
The dermal papilla at the base of hair follicles contains hair papilla cells which are differentiated mesenchymal cells. The function of these cells is of great importance for the hair formation and growth cycle.
Dermal papilla cells are formed by a group of mesenchymal cells which controls the hair follicle formation in the skin of the embryo. Proliferation and differentiation in the hair follicle are regulated by the extremely important complicated interactions between specialized epithelial and mesechymal cells together with extracellular components.
Established in 1990 in Heidelberg, PromoCell has endeavoured to support the trend towards carrying out in-vitro cell culture tests using normal human primary cells. The company seeks to open up new opportunities in the areas of tissue engineering, protein expression and process standardization within cell culture.
