From the article:

“HGEN-001 induced a significant increase in hair follicle growth, as compared to the control, in our preclinical model,” Said Frank Zeigler, General Manager of In Vitro Products for Histogen. “Researchers have reported the importance of wnt proteins and wound healing growth factors in the induction of new hair follicles for over a decade. Our research helps to substantiate the importance of these active agents in follicular neogenesis, all of which are components in HGEN-001.”

Thanks for posting this.

Great idea! I also think that there should be an academic-researcher master list. Both of them should be a permanent fixture on this forum where they can be added to or taken off if they drop the cause or go bankrupt, etc.
