View Full Version : Scientists create human embryos to make stem cells; good news for hair loss?

Earlier on his afternoon I discovered an article from the LA Times that reports scientists have managed to create human embryos inorder to produce stem cells. Below is a link to the article.


Now, I confess that I've very, very limited knowledge with regards to ongoing attempts to overcome hair loss and produce a treatment or cure for the condition and so was wondering if this news, exciting as it is, may have possible implications for hair loss.

Surely scientists could harvest the stem cells and produce DHT resistant hair for implantation, yes?

I understand that there are numerous issues that would need to be addressed such as ethics and the like but, in short, would it be possible?

Any feedback would be much appreciated. :)
