The phenomenon from the east that is Dr. Nigam just keeps growing. Just a few days after my first post on Dr. Nigam, Spencer Kobren (the famous host of The Bald Truth radio show) conducted an interview with Dr. Patrick Mwamba that all of this blog’s readers have to listen to. In my more than a decade of following hair loss news, the only other thing that has caused so much excitement on hair loss forums was the release of Avodart (Dutasteride) after FDA approval in 2002.
Virtually every other interesting development during this period of time was an obvious scam, or was a development whose success and fruition would not be seen “for at least 5 years”, or was a development (e.g., body hair to head transplants) that offered some hope at an improved appearance, but nothing resembling a cure.
Unfortunately, Avodart was not as significant an improvement over Propecia (Finasteride) as hoped. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Dr. Nigam’s exuberance and unique collaborative approach in this field finally lead to a groundbreaking development in this industry in the coming years.
Cheers to Mr.’s in vitro, in vivo and the previously neglected de novo. And to Dr. Nigam for improving my understanding of both Latin and Biology.
