    isn't it also an issue that you'd have to damage that area of the skin to cause new follicles? just taking FGF9 may not doing anything!
    This article kind of explains what Fgf9 is and its function.

    I meant they need to find drugs that stimulate Fgf9 - the links to Cot's paper has the info.

    And you do have to damage the tissue, however, based on the do it yourself experiments that were going on back when Follica was going at it with the lithium approach, it's not hard to do. I do believe some guys were getting a little growth with wounding - they were, believe it or not, lightly sandpapering areas of their noggin and applying lithium gel or whatever.

    certainly only with wounding. It appears that fgf9 takes advantage of a small time window in which skin cells are in a healing stage, which closely resembles an embryonic stage and triggers the skin cells to form new follicles during that period.

    In other words treatment with fgf9 is timed with the wounding phase.

    Huh, so Follica isn't dead afterall?

    Good.

    But as always, most likely nothing will come from it (at least not in the next 10 years)

    buy fgf9, needles, syringes, alcohol pads and a dermaroller, to create the wounds. no need to wait 10 years, hahahaha.

    obviously just talking theory here, wouldn't a dermaroller be good enough? then simply applying the fgf9 stimulating drug on top of the wound?

    this stuff sounds solid in theory, see if it actually works, any volunteers?

    also any chemists, pharmacists, dr's etc. that know the potential danger of injecting this stuff?

    The only problem is that everything is tested in rats for some reason never reaches the final stage, humans.

    Anyway, fingers crossed.
