  1. Thought there would be at least a few comments in regards to the second half of this post!

    Edit: Moved to a separate post on South Korea’s regenerative medicine sector.

  2. Definitely a positive change. Both South Korea and Japan seemed pretty quick already (compared to the US anyway) but anything to speed it up is okay with me. I get the need (hair is the least of their concerns)…but hopefully those suffering from hair loss can benefit as well. Thanks for posting about it.

  3. Good information admin! Thank you for your research, let’s hope this news helps companies focused on hair cloning like Kangstem to start clinical trials soon.

  4. It is also a success for the website, being able to see more than the last 3 comments to follow the forum thread!! And finally, on the topic of growing hair in people who have experienced alopecia for many years of their lives, transsexuals who take hormones with female hormones and recover part of their hair, the healing process that makes hair grow in wounds, the fact that hair grows on warts and moles, the fact that the hair on eyelashes is different from that on eyebrows, scalp and chest, armpits… You don’t have to look for the mechanism why, It is simply genetic, and we must find a solution, and the solution for androgenetic alopecia is hair cloning or a 100% effective medication for people who still have their hair so as not to lose it… life is simple and that’s how it is.

      1. This is already being done by Amplifica via Osteopotin. In fact in a email I had with Dr. Rassman is that we can expect results by this summer.

        1. Did he indicate whether the trial is Ph2 (i.e., Ph1 skipped as the drug was previously approved for other conditions)?
