Hey guys,

Here's another recent discovery that looks VERY promising. It was published in September 2011 edition of Cell journal.

Here's a little excerpt:

"Researchers found that a type of stem cell involved in creation of new fat cells -- adipose precursor cells -- was required for hair regeneration"

"They also found these cells produce molecules called PDGF (platelet derived growth factors), which are necessary to produce hair growth."

"Horsley's lab is trying to identify other signals produced by adipose precursor stem cells that may play a role in regulating hair growth. She also wants to know whether these same signals are required for human hair growth."

This will probably be included in "Histogen 2.0" LOL

2020 couldn't come sooner :D

its old news, but it was interesting. I dont think any of these separate research groups will do anything.

A joint anti bald force needs to form. The tokyo team, Dr Luaster and his team, Hoffman, Dr Cots and others all come together and exchange ideas.

Instead all we get are new studies referencing other studies.

Lol, is it really? Damn, I'm too new to this game.

Imagine if all these guys did come together! Wouldn't that be awesome :)

Let's hope more updates from the big 3 will keep us positive...fingers crossed
