Well, I don’t mean to sound negative but we’re dealing with the wnt pathway here… There is so much that’s not known about this pathway, but one thing that’s known is that it’s involved with cancer. If anyone is able to spot a precancerous skin lesion early on it would be her. So maybe that’s why she was brought on board? Just speculating…[/quote]
Ok so maybe one of the reasons they brought her on board was because she would spot any sign of skin cancer, but that isn’t my point. My point is that it seems like the research team is making a HUGE mistake if they expect to see discernible regrowth within 3 months but I guarantee that Wilma Bergfeld is aware that it typically takes 4 - 6 months for new hair to materialize. She was on board for all of the rogaine studies and all of the propecia studies, as well as virtually every other major hair loss clinical trial that has taken place. She is so highly ranked that she is actually the co-chair at the 2015 hair loss congress, with Angela Christiano no less as the other co-chair. She’s actually on that level - the level of Angela Christiano - and she definitely knows that 3 months is not typically long enough to determine if a medicine is growing hair or not.
And then there’s the fact that I think they’re only letting NW 4, 5, and 6 into the studies and of course it would take longer to regrow hair in people with these later stages of hair loss, and it would be harder to regrow hair in these late stage baldness cases.
I have to tell you that I’m scratching my head about this situation.
