The Report Could Be Worse


#1

The report says the following:

“We believe the continued development of ICX-TRC would best be carried out in partnership with a
specialist in the aesthetics field. We do not intend to finance the continuation of clinical and commercial
development of ICX-TRC beyond the current Phase II trial and shall seek to sign a partner when we have
the complete data package from this trial.”

It could be worse: they might have abandoned continuing phase II trials.

Instead, they intend to complete the trial and then find a partner (unless, of course, the data from the end of the trial is discouraging).

Nothing’s over 'till it’s over.

And this is not over yet.

No.

This report didn’t devastate me because my expectations were more sober than others, so I am able to view this more dispassionately.

I didn’t let my imagination run away with me.

Maybe they don’t want to go onto phase III for a reason other than money, maybe they think selling through a company like Bosley would be more accessible for people, or they would be better at marketing it, or they know it requires HT so they want to run trials with HT’s.

I don’t know, could be anything… just a thought.

»Ahab,’

IM pissed that the report isn’t including any pictures of this product and no statistical data.

As much as I hate to say it…them saying 13% increases to 103% increases in hair mean very very little

You need about 120 hairs per square inch for “decent” coverage, and 200 hairs per square inch for good coverage. People without MPB have more than this. If a man only has 20 hairs per square inch, then 40 hairs is a 200% of that if you wanted to parse words and be dishonest about it. That 103% responder might have only went from 20 hairs to 30 hairs in other words, not 20 to 40.

Even if they are playing it straight, and 10 hairs turned into 20 or 30 hairs turned into 60…This isn’t much. This is a company that was talking “unlimited amounts of hair” and all that jazz.
