I stopped checking this message board for about a week (no more than 2) and then all of a sudden, there are more posts than I have seen in the last 3 months combined.

Can anyone give a summary of what is happening?

Follica did not start their human trail…
ICX has not given their result.

But Acell will be available in july.

Maybe Follica has started the human trials (which they said they will this year), but they are not conveying anything to the public, since it is a small proof-of-concept trial. The real clinical trials have not started of course, since that would be known I guess.

I do not expect Follica to announce the commencement of a trial. Follica will announce the results whenever they feel the results are ready to be announced. I don’t think they even know when that will be.

Here is my opinion: If Follica’s treatment works well for regrowing hair and shows no signs of safety issues, then we will hear from them relatively soon after the trial has completed…within about a year. If the treatment is ineffective or has safety issues/complications, the trial is much more likely to drag on. As with ICX, the longer Follica goes without releasing public information, the more likely it will fail.

I dont see why Follica would release info stating whether they had begun human trials. I’m sure they did/will do some small scale stuff in the beginning to roughly assess whether the method works at all.

In the last couple of weeks, most of this brouhaha has been kicked off by the pics of a cancer victim’s hair regrowth. It’s a freak case and the results weren’t repeated when other cancer patients were doing the same thing, but it’s VERY interesting just on principle:

This terminal cancer patient was on oral Gentifib for many months. (Gentifib is probably Folica’s primary EGF-R blocker they’ll test first.) The guy regrew a blob of thin-but-terminal hairs on his shiny NW#6 head. Not thick long hairs or anything, but decent density. And the hairs didn’t look very greyed like the rest of his head around the area.

This was with no Folica “method” being employed at all. It happened at least a year ago and the guy wasn’t putting effort into his hair or anything. No dermbarasion or wounding in the regrowth area, no certain days starting and stopping the Gentifib, no nothing. He literally just had the drug steadily in his system, and hair had started regrowing within a few months.

Didn’t Dr. Phil say he was going to be used in Follica’s trail??

Dr. Phil shouldn’t even be worried about MPB.

He’s got his head so far up his ass that nobody can see anything but his donor-wreath hair as it is.

Where did you hear it was Follica? I think Dr. Mercola and Dr. Phil were about to embarg onto the same treatment, but it is kept secret as to what treatment they are receiving. Mercola’s staff stated that he indeed is receiving some stem cell treatment that aims to get rid of hair loss for good. Many people assume Follica since it coincides with their breakthroughs, but it’s not for certain.
