Time for an interview with Kemp?


#1

The latest news has left many of us anxious, and with a whole slew of new unanswered questions. We the ICX fan-club deserve an interview! And we’re far more relevant than angry and anxious shareholders.

So, perhaps it’s time. In the old-school Gho style perhaps, where we pool questions together, select the best ones, and choose one of our more educated posters to deliver them.

I’m not at all sure how to make this happen, but it would be nice if Hairsite could look into it.


#2

I’d love it but I’d be astonished if Kemp agreed to such an interview. They aren’t done with Phase II, so revealing problems with earlier iterations in detail will only undermine their financial value as a company.

I’d be surprised too, but it’s worth a try.

Yeah, I agree… if at least he could answer some of the extremely BASIC questions we all have. Such as…

  1. What are the actual before/after hair counts?
  2. What is “epidermal stimulation”?
  3. What are the ages and Norwood patterns of the patients?
  4. What were the dosages received vis-a-vis Phase I?

Best,
BB

  1. What was the quality of the hair grown. How many of those hairs turned terminal.
  2. Any directional issues still remaining?

  1. What happened to the 2 “lost” clients? And which cohorts were they from in Phase II?
  2. Why does it take 1 year to do a one-time injection on 12 people?

#7
  1. how much will it cost?

#8

Dr. Kemp is probably busy with the ISHRS conference at the moment.

Well, we don’t mean right this very moment. Say, in the next month or so.

I’m sure Kemp would be happy to talk to his fans… :expressionless:

I don’t think we’re gonna get very far asking for much in the way of specifics. (Price, hair counts, release dates, etc.) They’ve probably thought a lot about this and let out as much as they intend to right now.

I think we should just continue to press for firmer answers about the specifics of the ultimate results when it actually does go to market. I’m still half-expecting some “other shoe” to drop on the whole HM effort, and if this is the case then the sooner we find out about it the better.

– Can they give us a FIRM Y/N answer about whether ICX-TRC is creating any new terminal-growing follicles that never previously existed? (Very relevant to those who have already had major-league HTs in the past.)

– Is there ANY difference between each final ICX’d hair versus what would exist if the patient had never experienced MPB on that particular hair?

– Do we know for certain that the ICX’d hairs are cycling normally without future assistance?

– Do we know that there is absolutely no more lingering MPB susceptibility in the final ICX’d hairs than with the donor hairs used in the procedure?

Maybe this stuff seems like a bunch of foregone conclusions, but I just don’t wanna get my hopes up falsely. These medical researchers can be so “careful” about shaping their words . . . I just can’t feel safe assuming anything that they haven’t explicitly spelled-out on paper.


#11

Good questions too. We should keep this idea alive.

They may not give us firmer answers on hair counts, and certainly not release dates and prices, but we could also press them for a less vague interpretation of what “significant” means when they say significant increases in hair counts.

It’s now been many years, and a few hair cycles since the first Phase I trialists grew hair. We could press them for a little more information on hair cycling. They should have a good idea by now as to whether the hair continues to cycle for at least as long as the trials have been going on.

  1. is this a scam and is that why you dont provide much data

My questions for Dr. Kemp:
How do you see the future of HM? Can you give us a timeline? What can we expect? Can any bald man expect to regrow his hair in the next 10 years? Will this treatment be able to restore a full head of hair, or will it only grow a limited amount of hair (for instance in conjunction with a hair transplant)?


#16

Will this treatment be able to restore a full head of hair, or will it only grow a limited amount of hair (for instance in conjunction with a hair transplant)?

I think this is the next line of questioning to pursue that might tell us something important.


#17

What is his email?

And an important question i think is the date of a possible release… 2 years,5, 10… depend all by the time… i’m curious to know what i can see in the next two years, because if we have to wait more the only solution is a transplant.


#19

Start planning a transplant. Seriously.

When the filthy-rich and the movie stars actually begin showing up in public with new hair, THEN we’re probably 1-3 years away from HM for guys without money & connections.

I am not trying to be negative. Only realistic.

This HM anticipation sometimes reminds me of when sombody’s coming out with a long-rumored new sports car: First the actual development takes a couple years longer than everyone hopes & wants it to take. Then when it finally arrives, everyone gets excited until they discover that the dealers’ markups add thousands & thousands of dollars more onto the price above the offical quote. Getting the car reasonably takes another year or so after that.

» Start planning a transplant. Seriously.
I’m scared by the idea that an HM can’t works on a transplanted scalp…
