Trc is working!


#1

Hi all… I am from Italy. I am a software engineer… :slight_smile:
I am reading this forum from July 2006.
I appreciate you all…
Yesterday evening
I was reading a Dr. Kemp interview…

1000 injections had to be done in phase 2.
900 hundred in a thinning zone.
100 in a TOTALLY BALD zone.
this 100 injections…would have been used to present statistical results…
SO…

if 100 injections …have been done… and you have…105 % regrowth
it means that you have more hair then injections…
So it’s fully working…even if you have 80%…of regrowth. IMHO.

I hope you all think… this is true… :slight_smile:

Waiting for your comments.
Cheers,

Max

Phase II - the Design

Phase II has officially started in September 2006. Up to 20 test subjects may be enrolled for phase II. Only local subjects will be recruited. Not all test subjects are scheduled to begin the trial at the same time. There will be fine-tuning and adjustments to the protocol as the trial progresses. Dr. Kemp described phase II as a “rolling or staggering” trial in the sense that the protocol may evolve over the duration of the trial. More than 1 protocol may be tested in phase II depending on the initial results.

In phase II, there will be TWO test sites on each volunteer’s scalp. The first test site is on a completely bald area measuring about 1 sq cm. This site will be subject to100 injections of the cultured suspension. Unlike the first test site that resides on a completely bald area, the second test site is on a much larger area containing thinning hair. The second site will be subject to 900 injections. In other words, each volunteer will receive 1,000 injections divided between two test sites on his scalp. Both test sites will be administered and monitored simultaneously.

Evaluation of the 900-injections test site will be done primarily through photographic assessment of the before and after changes. A more detailed graft-by-graft hair count assessment will be performed on the smaller 100-injections test site.

If all goes as expected, phase II may be concluded in approximately 1 year.

We’ll just have to wait and see.

who says the 105% of regrowh has been calculated by injections?? -_- an optimistic point of view, nothing more :\

Well, the argument here is that if the injected area was completely bald, then the percentages certainly can’t be based on the number of existing hairs. So what else can the percentages mean?

Exactly.
I don’t want to be optimistic…
If Kemp explained the Phase II correctly, we can be sure.

Best Regards,

Massimo.

mmh, that’s true ! so why intercytex says only “encouraging results” about the preliminary results ? if it were exactly what u said it would be a huge result !!! a lot more than encouraging … :stuck_out_tongue:

Because they are scientists.
And… don’t you think this to be “encouraging”??? :smiley: :wink:

However, in its latest press release, ICX does say:

“In this study, hair counts are obtained by shaving and photographing a small section of scalp, injecting it and then applying a specialised image analysis system to provide a total hair count. Two sub-groups were each injected with autologous DP cells using different delivery techniques. The first group focussed on delivery of the hair inductive DP cells, and in the second group resident hair producing (epithelial) cells were also stimulated at the time of delivery.”

So if the injected areas were bald, why shave them prior to injection?

What happened to all the people on this forum who were emailing and phoning ICX to ask them all sorts of questions? I think someone needs to contact ICX and ask what the percentages mean.

yes. We need more info…

All the people.All amounted to me and baccy phoning the Farjo Clinic,thats all.I’m not phoning them again.They now tell you nothing.

Intercytex have answered peoples emails in the past,but they tell you nothing now,too.

WHY DON’T YOU PHONE THEM…I HAVE THEIR PHONE NUMBERS.

If they tell nothing now, why would I bother… And there’s no need to shout, really. :smiley:
