People are just desperate and patience is out of the question so when theres lil regrowth than shit hits the fan. I think it's going to take a full year to determine how effective replicel will be just in how histogen had better results after 1 year and how propecia takes a full year to see regrowth. Im curious to see what spencer thinks about the results

I seem to remember reading posts that compared the length of the hair cycles in mice, dogs, and humans. If I remember correctly, the hair cycle for a mouse was several weeks, whereas for a human it was much longer, perhaps even several years. I wonder if these could be why Replicel got such good regrowth in the mouse trials, but to date has so little to show for the human trial. Would the results be better at the one year mark?

I can't wait for the David Hall interview, assuming there is still going to be one!

histogen had results 3 months or less



why does it matter what spencer says? He already gave the disclaimer that he is just a normal guy. His opinion is really only so valuable. He is knowledgeable, but do you guys really need him to let you know whether the results were weak or not? I value his opinion and am interested in what his response will be, but some people go a little far with their devotion

It's a start. Not a great start but still a start. I sure hope they don't call it quits because the more people working on this stuff the better.

Spencer has been around these so called next treatments and all these clinical trials so im guessing he knows how to understand the next step more than us. You are so negative about everything you post like thanks for ruining my mood and others.

If this only results in a 3% improvement than I guess the cost of the treatment should be around $100 rather than thousands, right?

That's some good news.
