ReGenica


#1

We already discussed Histogen, but lately they renamed their hairloss product to ReGenica
http://www.histogeninc.com/products/regenica.htm

ReGenicaTM is a proprietary liquid formula created by the culturing of newborn fibroblasts in an embryonic-like environment and then harvesting the naturally secreted growth factors, anitoxidants and other synergistic bioproducts that are produced. It is the first naturally stabilized and bioactive formulation of wnt proteins and natural cofactors - offering exceptional opportunities for applications including research tools and as a natural additive in products.

  • The formula contains naturally stabilized and bioactive wnt proteins with activity
  • The formula contains naturally secreted growth factors
  • ReGenicaTM is soluble and can be in both a topical or injectible format.
  • The formula requires no purification process

Capabilities for Skin & Hair Care
Histogen is also evaluating ReGenicaTM as an active ingredient for hair care products such as shampoos and conditioners. The Company anticipates ReGenicaTM’s interaction with hair follicles will help hair to grow thicker, stronger and more flexible.

Capabilities for Hair growth
Hair loss affects 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States.

One of Histogen’s significant applications for ReGenicaTM is its utilization as an injectable for hair growth. The combination of wnt proteins and growth factors making up ReGenicaTM has been shown to both stimulate resting hair follicles and induce new follicle formation.

In May 2007, these findings were substantiated by research performed by Dr. George Cotsarelis, which offered further evidence that these growth factors and proteins in combination lead to a significant increase in the creation of new hair follicles in mice.

Histogen’s injectible ReGenicaTM for hair growth will begin clinical trials in Q4 2008, and launch is planned for 2015.

I wish em’ luck. At least they appear to be heading right to trials and not pussyfooting around (like Aderans). Hopefully they will be willing to let us know about their results and throw in some pictures so we can assess their progress. I hope one of these outfits attempts to shoot up the hippocratic wreath area in pursuit of thickening up the donor area. We know that hair can be moved and will keep its characteristics.

and although it does help, its not a cure. do you remember the pics? nizoral does better then this in the patent.

but perhaps they were able to improve it

I’m really NOT looking forward to this, I think it’s just a gimmick to attract investment. I say this because their histogen product is based on Follica’s science, they saw Dr. Cotsarelis research and noticed same ingredients, so they decided to pursue it. Follica approach is much more novel then histogen, and if Follica fails then histogen is certainly going down the gutter. On the other hand, if Follica works then we certainly Won’t be needing Histogen. So I don’t see any point in Histogen other than attracting investor money!

Make it between 50 to 60 million (my guess)
(plus 1/2 mill guys with wigs that may easily pass for norwood 1 or 2)
