    Great interview! Thanks for keeping on top of this, Spencer. This is truly groundbreaking. One question that wasn't addressed was the percentage of hairs that regrow in the recipient area. I've heard different numbers - Hitzig suggests 60-80%, I think Cooley at one time suggested 75%... Dr. Rassman on his blog says it's less than 50% -- though I take his claims with a grain of salt.. Dr. Cooley, if you're reading this, could you let us know? Thanks.

    Wow this is amazing, if more research goes into using Matristem with plucked hairs, than 2010 may be the year that baldness was finally cured!!!

    We are still speaking about a hair transplant right..

    I think i understand the implications of this ultimately instead of having a strip off the back of your head, hairs are plucked and reintroduced and the regenerative process of the body takes over..

    My concern is a number of things.. firstly price secondly we are still talking about a hair transplant with man made hairlines right? thirdly thickness, does it look natural..

    I think most bald sufferers will agree with me when i say that we are looking to have the luscious, lavish hair we once use to have.. that to me is a cure to baldness.. now maybe im jumping the gun but ultimately does this process over this..

    Maybe i dont understand the implications of this..

    Yes, it's still a hair transplant. No, you probably aren't going to get the luscious, lavish hair you want. Of course we'd all like to rub some oil on our scalp and wake up as Brad Pitt the next day. Till then, this is a huge breakthrough offering immediate steps in the right direction. We should be celebrating, not moaning because it's not the holy grail. I'm still curious about the percentage of regrowth though..

    Definitely something good. But this is not the holy grail... It is still a transplant and it's still very new. most of all I think it is going to be extremely extremely expensive.

    But it's definitely a big step in the right direction

    That's the problem with a lot of hair transplant advances; your hair will still only be as thick as a human hand is capable of implanting grafts. To be honest though, for me this might be enough. Transplants for those with enough hair look pretty good to me, and to be honest having hair like Brad Pitt will look odd by the time I'm 40!

    Price is a big concern with this...

    If it was like $5000 to fix my hairline, yeah...sure id definitely do it. But this with traveling will be 5-10x+ that ..

    I think my limit would be about £20,000. To be honest, I just need to learn to be patient because there will definitely be a non-surgical solution soon, whether it is Histogen or something else. Although I believe hair transplants work, I have no particular desire to go through with one because I don't like operations!

    FUE has a low yield, this is fact.
    FUT leaves scarring and just seems somewhat brutal to me in a way. I just don't want someone cutting a part of my head at the back it's just weird.


    But yeah... they work but really I dno if it's worth it.
