What is the biochemical mechanism of ACell?


#1

Does it have a biochemical mechanism or does it just act as a microscopic granular “matrix” that allows restorative cells or skin stem cells to adhere and concentrate themselves during the healing process?

Also, I think I’m missing something here. Isn’t Dr Cooley using the ACell on in the donor areas, to heal that tissue and generate regrowth of donor hairs there which undet normal HT conditions would be lost and filled in with scar tissue?

Or is he using the ACell also in the recipient (balding) areas now?

If he’s not, then why the big fuss about what happens in the recipient areas when plucked donor follicles are implanted there? Hasn’t this been tried before, with only mediocre results? Why should it be any different now that Cooley is using ACell in the donor area?

Wasn’t the first concept of using ACell in conjunction with HT about applying it only to the donor area?

Man, READ the scientifc papers about ACell’s products,
and you will know (or not) the answers to you questions !

By the way …

Sorry roger_that for „bashing“ you, because I’m not entitled to bash layman’s like you, when there are LOTS OF physicians out there, who seem to be UNABLE to find “enough information” about medical companies and about their products …

Or another example (Ray Woods):

Anyway, on the other hand, it’s interesting to see, WHY “none-physicians” (like you and me) are certainly and easily able to find them - IF they are really interested in a specific subject.

Interesting – isn’t it?

Wow so even Koray is interested, I hope he can found info about acell as fast as he can and start to use on his patients, but also I would to know why there is this kinda “secret” about the hitzik/cooley procedure…

Stanford researchers find that Laminin 511 is a trigger for hair growth/regeneration.

Guess what happens to be in Acell? Laminin 511 is indeed one of its ingredients. I don’t what else is in Acell, but whatever it is, looks like it’s good stuff. Just needed to be put in the hands of the right doctor who would test it out and document those tests.

REALLY ?

Laminin-511 is “indeed” one of ACell’s MatriStem’s ingredients ? Really ?

Just some questions for you:

  1. What is “ACell” ?

  2. What is “MatriStem” ?

  3. What is a “scaffold” ?

  4. What is a “bioabsorbable scaffold” ?

  5. What is an “Extracellular Matrix” ?

  6. Where is the difference between Laminin-111 and Laminin-511 ?

:sleeping:

Who gives a sh-t, really? As long as it works it could have chocolate syrup in it for all I care.

Just saying it’s probable that some of the ingredients in Acell are unique and that’s why it’s working. Laminin 511 certainly could be one of those ingredients.

You probably would not get the same results using anything off the shelf.

Too much “probably’s” in you post. But I like most the “certainly could be” part. lol

Like I said, I really don’t care, as long as it works and is safe … that’s good enough for me.

If some researchers with dorky nerd glasses want to spend 3-4 years figuring out exactly how this works … good on them. I’m just saying … Stanford researchers discover that Laminin 511 triggers hair growth/regeneration … and it just happens to be in Acell. Perhaps more than a coincidence.

Really though for me the most refreshing thing about this is this procedure is not something that’s going to take 4-5 years of endless “research” to try and figure out if it works in the first place. It already does to at least some extent.
