Not to sure about that. Its confirmed that the stem cells are there, but noone has revived dormant follicles yet.
I dont know enough about the biology of it, but I remember seeing pictures of follicles at different stages, including the dormant phase. All the necessary components were there, but it just looked shriveled up.
If some scientists claim that all thats needed is the signal to tell the stem cells to get working, then here's hoping HSC can delivery that! Assuming its wnt signals and not something else.
It takes a very long time for a follicle to become dormant. From terminal, to thin, to velus, peach fuzz, and then it continues but the hair doesnt come through the skin. <<<<< If HSC can wake all those up then I'm saved. For the people who have been shiney bald for 5 years or more....who knows. It would be pretty stupid to only be testing it out on thinning patients, so I'm sure histogen will have 'some' news soon enough. They still doing a 3 month update?
