View Full Version : "Acell" test..... to be or not to be!

07-21-2010, 03:38 AM

Over the past few weeks I've started researching the new ACell treatment that several are considering a medical breakthrough for skin and scar regeneration.
After contacting the company, Doc Cole, Doc Cooley and several others working on the concept I found the following: The only Doc's actually working hand in hand with the ACell company at this time is Jerry Cooley and Hitzig. Cole is just using it as a test treatment and does not have much in line of actual achievements as of yet...

He only started using it in January 2010....His personal vies is that he's not to hope full in its cloning hair capabilities but is willing to try it on scar tissue regeneration...

Now Hitzig in my opinion is nothing but a butcher AND NOTHING LESS regardless of his input on the subject....I feel he is just using this concept to lure more young guys to his table as I'm sure his reputation has started to lead many people away from his clinic......

I personally feel this way for 2 reasons.....1) Hitzig's Long Island medical organization is the reason for all my scars and T-plant misfortunes due to his so called patented linier punch tools.....most if not all the grafts sunk and pitted in my extremely low at the time hairline...(1996).......2) knowing a little about his practice first hand I know all to well he HAS USED underhanded and misleading information in the past......

He is also in 2010 STILL USING PUNCH GRAFTS in his work!

As for Cooley.....I spoke with him in person a few days ago and said he will be posing his 1.5 year research on the subject in the upcoming October hair transplant seminar being held in Boston he also said they have been seeing some remarkable things with scar treatments......the treatments however for hair cloning is still not applicable yet......but found a unique way to pluck a hair and regenerate a single folicle ....I feel its about 75% or so so 100 plucked hairs should grow about 75 give or take a few.....But there is still no garantee anything will grow at all

ACell's company in itself really is working toward the goal of tissue regeneration of body parts that may indeed include skin scar regeneration.......

I will be patiently waiting for the 1.5 year update coming out in October for its credible or not so creditable treatment results

Feller is not offering the treatment yet,....... He said however He may start using if he see's some positive results and benefits from it............. Other then for scar revision it may be the best technique in my opinion FOR repair work........

Feller does not do much in terms of repair work other then adding more grafts....Not that its the wrong approach but just the easy fix IMO.........I personally want my scalp back first and foremost! .....................Nither is Bernstien

Cooley is also offering his Plucking technique according to what he showed me in his research. So out of 100 plucked/tweezed hairs 75 or so should grow (But there is no guarantee's)

The plucking technique just plucks out a hair and bathes it with Acell then plants the plucked hair into a scar and if results prove to be consistent it will regenerate the follicle

He offered this to me for a trial price that I feel is somewhat high being a trial

HOWEVER.....I feel if i could get a group of people on board with this test I could talk him down to a more reasonable price for all of us....

Its not crazy expensive but enough that if you wanted to really try to build up the density in a scar it would cost to much

The only draw back is that it will as of now only produce a single hair graph It wont generate a follicular unit at least not yet... So if anyone is interested in being in this group or wants to learn more please contact me in person...


I'm a member of 3 different groups and would love to share my experiences and findings with all

However I have not found 1 single person that's interested in this ground breaking research group yet!

I feel if i could get a small group together we may be able to get a better feel for the research and not to mention a better price.

A scar revision may not be the best tactic in my case as the scar is very high though i would love to remove it and use Acell to try and get a tight close. But for now Cooley wants to try the plucking technique

I also have about 20-25 small FUE size pits in my lower hairline along with about 35 or so more throughout my top 1/3 from the Hitzig punch tool back in 97

So i will try several small test removals first to see the actual results from Acell

But with more people I think we could go in as a group for a much more accurate evaluation

Can someone help?

Dr Cooley

I have an idea that can potentially be beneficial for both of us....

At this point in my life I would love to just shave my head down to a zero guard.......(I just want to stop worrying about hair loss)....15 years is to long to stress over it......Im at my wits end with the whole thing

The 3 things that's preventing me from doing this at this time is a medium number of FUE white dots, 2 6-7 inch linier scars (One thin and 1 thick ) and about 50-100 mini/micro grafts and pitted spots from the punch..... all of which need to be addressed.

What I think would be a good call would be to do a small test as stated above but instead of doing the pits in my hairline I'd rather try it on several FUE white dots first instead......say about 15-20 or more.....if the Acell works on the FUE white dots then it should also work on the pitted grafts as well......At least this way if it doesn't come out as planed then it will just look the same......A small white dot!

If it works on the 15-20 then we can do the rest of the FUE dots along with the pits....

My main goal is to get my skin back to as much as normal as i can.....

As far as the linier scars I would also be interested in doing a revision with Acell to get a more natural/non white look........... then FUE scalp or body hair and/or plucked into the gap along with maybe some fraxel to improve it even more.......bring it down to an almost invisible line in color, thickness and texture.

The little bald spots from the pit removal process can also be covered with a few FUE or plucking to leave no hair gaps as this will allow me to shave it down with limited detectibility

If this works then my main goal will have been met.......If and when multiplication is an option in the future then that will be another story for future transplant work......but for now this is how you can help me....even if it takes up to 2 years to complete...........

If you agree to help me I will also agree to be one of your main test patients for your repair research and work

I will also give my review of your technique online (with your permission of course) after its all done......

There is an incredibly large market in transplant repair and most are hanging on your upcoming report from several of my posts already ....... myself included .......!

I will also in the near future try the Fraxel laser on a few shallow/whitish spots in my hairline that the laser Doc feels may help a little more on .........His name is Leonard Bernstein ........He's a colleague of Geronomus from the laser and skin institute in NY......He said Fraxel restore is the name of the laser...its the least invasive of the 2 types.....it works mainly on hypo pigmentation and slight pitting....the other is more extreme but will not go as deep as what is needed in the deeper ones

I will also add Acell to the treatment according to your instructions

If this sounds like a viable plan then I will schedule the test ASAP.......


07-26-2010, 09:23 AM
The above was an email sent to Cooley's office......

I feel its worth a shot to test for myself how the Acell healing actually looks....

If it works I feel it will be a viable option for other various types of repair.......Hair transplant and surgical and non surgical scarring...

Pits,FUE marks and linier scars is what im interested in for now!.....

I will be patiently waiting for his response

08-17-2010, 04:20 PM
Doing the Acell test at the end of Sept 2010 .....Testing it on a few FUE white dots along with adding hairs to a few others including my scar with the plucking method..

But its just a small test ........However if it works I will add several hundred more slowley over a few sessions along with trying to remove and deminish some pitting

Hopefully it will work to regenerate a few spots of damaged skin.....

08-18-2010, 09:50 AM
keep us posted on your results. i'm especially interested in the plucking method.

08-25-2010, 02:41 PM
Check this link out !

I just found it on the net regarding an FUE patient and Acell!!

Acells Matristem (powder +sheet) application in FIT

FIT (Follicular Isolation Technique ) is a procedure in Hair transplant surgery.
It consists of removing each follicle individually with a small punch .In donor area it creates multiple wound which heals faster .Collagen fibers( scar tissue) fill those empty spaces during the healing process.
Acells Matristem technology is a naturally occurring bioscaffold derived from porcine tissue .When Matristem is placed onto a wound ,it is resorbed and replaced with new native tissue where scar tissue would normally be expected.
With this characteristics ,the A cells Matristem should fill our donor wound and regenerates terminal hairs ;rending our donor resource infinite.

We applied the Acell powder and cover it with the Acell sheet as described in our study protocol.
We would like to present the first observations we made


08-25-2010, 03:13 PM
looks encouraging. i'd like to hear what dr cooley's experience with acell has been. thanks for posting the link.

09-22-2010, 04:50 AM
A short update.......

Late last week I recieved a Plucking/Acell test in a small portion of one of my 2 scars ,a few white FUE dots and an actual removal of a few more FUE white dots to see if they heal without hypo pigmentation using Acell...

in total I recieved about 100-120 plucked hairs in about 70 or so spots...

I wanted to post some pix but was told to wait till after the confrence......

Ill however keep records of the progress and post as things progress..

In general the hairs were plucked/yanked in several small areas and were basted in an Acell solution then transplanted into the desired locations

The plucked/Yanked donor hairs will grow back as good as new in a few days according to Cooley......Just like as if i tweezed them....

If it works this will be a fantastic breakthrough for scar repair and later on maybe even hairline single hair work........

The only drawback is the fact that only one hair will regrow and not a whole folicular unit .........

He also tried planting 1-3 hairs in a few spots on the scar to see if he can get 2 hairs to grow.........But do not reccomend this for hairline work......

09-22-2010, 10:00 AM
I'd be open to it. How long do I need to wait post-op before messing with the scar?

09-22-2010, 02:07 PM
You want to give any scar at least 1 year to heal before it should be tampered with...be it revision, FUE or plucking .......

09-22-2010, 02:08 PM
However plucking is still experimental!

10-21-2010, 10:07 AM
However plucking is still experimental!

I think they just about finished speaking at the ISHRS annual meeting, so can you post your pics of the hair plucking?

10-21-2010, 11:10 AM
I only have before pictures I never received the after photo's yet ......I did take a few with my own camera but found they were to blurry....

In a nutshell all the hairs have shed and will take about 3-6 months to tell if it worked or not... The FUE spot removal's have healed but I can still see the mark/s.........It will also take a few months to tell if the original hypo pigmentation issue will resolve or not

If I see anything interesting I'll post ASAP.....!:)

Hey guys Spencer Kobren just had an interview with Dr. Jerry Cooley and I think we may have finally cured baldness!!!!!!


10-25-2010, 08:59 PM
Jerry: I started working with this wound healing product about a year and a half ago, and initially got some promising results, its taken me definitely some time to understand it and understand what worked well and what didnít as well as just to see long term results and one of the things ive been doing in the last few months is just making a real concerted effort to bring people back in which is not really that easy, but just to really look very closely at my results and Iíve just gotten that much more excited about it.

Spencer: well I guess the big buzz is everyone is you know asking if this something thatís actually regenerating hair you know Dr Gary Hitzig put out the initial press release a few months ago, it looked like this was almost the holy grail, this was going to be hair cloning, and from what I gather its not exactly the case.

Jerry: Yea, you know it really does require further explanation; the best way that I can describe it is this represents a very important piece of the puzzle, it is a breakthrough. Its an active area of regenerative medicine, hair restoration is just a very very tiny application, there using this product for all sort of applications which I can describe for you if your interested.

Spencer: absolutely

Jerry: Yea, but I have not documented new hair in other words a complete out of nothing hair follicle appearing were there wasnít one

Spencer: right

Jerry: but, it does appear to be able to restore transacted or injured hair follicles

Spencer: really

Jerry: and something were very excited about which is to copy or what we call autoclone plucked hairs.

Spencer: Yea explain that, you know a lot of people have been writing us about that there been some stuff circulating online about that, I know that youíve been doing hair plucking ,and know that ive read some stuff about Dr Hitzig experimenting with it as well, explain it to us what exactly is it.

Jerry: Sure the best way I can describe it is if you just look at the basic structure of the hair follicle there are two basic layers of cells around the hair shaft, the outer layer is what we call the mesenchymal layer and thatís what contains the dermal papilla; thatís what intercytex and Aderans are trying to isolate and culture and use for cloning applications and cell implants. The inner layer is what we call the epithelial layer and that where you have the bulge with the stem cells, the outer and inner root sheath and when you pluck a hair properly you can get this inner portion or the epithelia portion, now about ten years ago Dr. Hitzig began experimenting some of his patients who had multiple old transplants and had no donor hair to give he just got interested in the concept of plucking beard whiskers and using them as grafts and he had a pretty low rate of success, but once in a while it worked and he kept working over the years on ways to get it to work better, then a couple of years ago began using this product called acell and I had kept in touch with him over the years because I was very interested in this idea and once I heard about the acell I knew I had to get involved and the basic idea is this that when you pluck a hair its going to grow back from the site you plucked it because all of the elements inside are necessary to regenerate the hair follicle and anyone whos plucked there hairs knows it grows back, but the reason that it will grow where we planted it is that when we coat it with this acell product and then transplant it stimulates the bodies innate regenerative potential to rebuild the follicle that outer portion around the plucked graft.

Spencer: thatís amazing,

Jerry: it is amazing

Spencer: that really is, I mean thatís basically if this is truly consistently possible you would basically have unlimited donor

Jerry: Right, and it was just astounding and I knew a lot of people would be sceptical, and Dr. Hitzig although very excited about it you know didnít really take the time to take macro photographs or biopsies and so thats some of the thins I wanted to do to really convince the sceptics.

Spencer: sure

Jerry: and so I was using a high powered attachment to my digital camera to document the photographic evidence that these hairs would grow and then I did a series of biopsies and worked with a very prominent dermatopathologist to analyze these biopsies to say what do these things look like under the microscope. And I can show some of those images and basically they look like normal hair follicles, Im trying to be careful not to overplay it, and I donít want to overstate these results

Spencer: yea but its not like you just heard it through the grapevine, you actually were able to produce these results

Jerry: Correct

Spencer: okay

Jerry: yea, and prove for what I consider to be beyond a shadow of a doubt that this phenomenon occurs you simply cant look at these biopsy results and dispute what you see.

Spencer: Now are these plucked hairs growing into terminal hairs, full terminal hairs.

Jerry: yes, yea, indistinguishable

Spencer: wow,

Spencer: I will tell you that ive been in this industry for thirteen years and this is probably the most exciting news that ive ever heard, and im not just trying to over hype this. If this is what it is, if this is what you say it is this is monumental news.

Jerry: well I certainly think so , and I think so for two reasons, one I think the autocloning as it stands right now with the plucked grafts has clinical applications today. I mean im doing this in the clinic right now. But, I think more importantly it shows us something that you know until recently we hadnít even thought of we were pursuing this idea of culturing dermal papilla and

Spencer: absolutely

Jerry: and applying and injecting them when the body has this miraculous regenerative potential and we can take this research this technology to the next level and learn how to trigger the body to regenerate hair follicles and in fact Dr. Anthony Atala who one of the worlds leading regenerative medicine experts was recently quoted in an article saying he thinks this is the direction that regenerative medicine is going, you know rather than constructing these complex organs in the laboratory and then putting them in or culturing all these cells that really the most promising direction is using these triggers and in this case acell using these triggers to get the body to regenerate.

Spencer: well first of all its an amazing sounding process and a) its you know its gotta be less expensive in the long run b) your not worrying about like you said regenerating these entire tiny little organs in a Petri dish

Jerry: right and you know the cell culturing process is incredibly complicated, and you know having these culturing facilities and so on, and whether or not it may turn out to be successful but, if thereís a simpler way it certainly would be much less expensive.

Spencer: I donít mean to cut you off but this aderans must be looking at this and be thinking holy cow, you know we spent all this time this money and obviously going in a specific direction to make this happen, but I mean this could completely eclipse what theyíve been working on.

Jerry: well thatís one possible scenario, and another possible scenario is its going to take a combination of this technology and cultured cells so I think right now everythingís up for grabs, this is a breakthrough, but exactly whatís going to happen from here you know remains to be seen, it may be that will be using a combination of cells and extracellular matrix, but I think this is one critical piece of the puzzle.

Spencer: well id say youíve always been a very diplomatic guy Dr. Cooley, I mean whats your gut tell you from what youíve seen in your own practice.

Jerry: my gut tells me that his is where the action is at, this is what other researchers are focusing on for degenerative conditions and this is where we as you know people very interested in bringing this idea of hair restoration, this is where we should be heading, but im not, im not, I want to make it clear, im not, I donít think this as of right now means the end of cell technology.

Spencer: right im actually surprised that im hearing this because I knew that this was happening, but I had no clue that youíve had such great success with it, and I think that whats going to happen especially once this interview gets out a) your going to be inundated with phone calls, and I donít want consumers and hair loss sufferers to think that okay now this out , there the holy grail is their Im going to be able to get unlimited donor supply, its going to take some time.

Jerry: oh absolutely, and I certainly that is not the message, this is in my opinion a breakthrough it is available now and it takes hair restoration to a whole new level in my opinion and it gives us options as will discuss as we get into my presentation, not just for this autocloning but just making current hair transplants that much better.

Spencer: I mean do you think that guys who are considering minimal procedures would be great candidates for something like this

Jerry: well this would probably be a good time to discuss unanswered questions, so we can create these new hair follicles we can duplicate hair follicles, are these hair follicles permanent? Are they subject to balding? Will they cycle normally? These are some important questions that I want to now that I know we can do it, these are the questions now that I want to look at is because theyíre regenerated in the recipient area are they a hybrid? Will they show sensitivity to DHT? When they go through there growing phase of three years will they fall out and not come back? So one of the things im going to do is start plucking some of my plucked grafts you know that are growing and see if they regrow and just to make sure that theyíre as durable and healthy as we want them to be.

Spencer: so as far as a timeline, when do you think, how long do you think its going to take for you to be comfortable in saying you know what this works, this works to the extent that you believe that we can give somebody a fuller head of hair without using some of the conventional methods.

Jerry: well ive very conservatively and very carefully starting introducing it into my practice that way, so ive started doing , you know ive stared off doing 100 test grafts, 200 test grafts, then 400 test grafts. My largest one to date is about 1500, and thatís an example of a women who had this really beautiful hair, she had had a prior STRIP with a bad experience at another clinic, came to see me we did a small STRIP with good results but even though she has this luxurious beautiful hair, her scalp is tight as a drum, so her option is basically FUE, and she heard about the plucking research and was interested so basically we did about 1500 grafts to her frontal scalp with plucking and a anticipating a good results. But that patient went into this process fully informed that yes its less invasive these are the advantages but we cant guarantee the permanence, you know I predict that they will be permanent but that will remain to be known, so anyone doing a new procedure

Spencer: even if it lasted three years, even if it lasted you know one growth cycle I mean to go back in to get it done obviously, thereís a cost issue involved, but if its relatively less invasive and you know theres not a tremendous amount of downtime you know you can kind of replace some of the hairs that might be lost over time, and I think thats always a possibility, yea its gonna be kind of like an ongoing process which isnít the best case scenario but it would still beat being bald especially for a women.

Jerry: well I think time will tell and answer these questions, im certainly optimistic that these will be you know long lasting results.

Spencer: okay, well good.

This presentation was presented at the 18th Annual ISHRS Scientific Meeting.
Part 1 & 2:


Part 3 & 4:


10-27-2010, 11:49 AM
When Dr. Jerry Cooley says that the hairs need to be plucked in a very specific manner he means that the epithelial tissue must still be in tact to the hair shaft.

For example here is a hair that i just plucked from my scalp that contains the epithelial tissue intact.






and here is an example of a hair shaft that does not contain the epithelial tissue.





As you can see the hair shafts with the epithelial tissue intact look similar to an FUE single hair graft unit, however a FUE hair graft contains both the mesenchymal layer and the epithelial layer.

A plucked hair only contains the epithelial layer, however according to Dr. Cooley, Acells matristem powder is able to regenerate the mesenchymal layer when implanted into the recipient site.

And this is the jist of Dr Cooleys new breakthrough. Keep in mind that this plucking technique was tried many times before however those that tried it before did not use the Acell matristem and so the mesenchymal layer was not able to regenerate which is the key to this new breakthrough.

11-03-2010, 10:15 AM
Here's an interview with Dr Robert Bernstein talking about Acell


11-04-2010, 06:16 PM
It seems like there has been a standard protocol for testing something of this nature that I have seen before. You would mark off a square cm by way of tattoo in an inconspicuous area and pluck out every hair in that spot. You would then place each hair in another square cm area that was similarly marked and totally bald. You would then evaluate the results and present photographic evidence. You also would not charge someone for something like this and you would be more apt to pay the tester. Why has this not been done if itís already been 1.5 years of testing. Maybe it has and if so I would like to see those photos.

I have tended to ask many whys over the last ten years and bring up points and red flags that might ruffle a few feathers. Itís not meant to bash or be negative in any way. Itís meant to help us all learn after all thatís why we are here.

Spencer Kobren Interviews Dr. Gary Hitzig Ė The Pioneer In Using ACell MatriStem For Hair Restoration

about the plucking of hairs: is it very time consuming?
do you have to pluck a lot of hairs and then choose which ones are suitable?
does the plucking procedure produce any small bleeding in the donor follicle?
lets suppose you want to transplant just 1 plucked hair in the recipient site. How much time would it require (total time, including plucking)?

you said that the plucked sites regenerated in a few days. How could you locate the plucked sites? did Cooley harvest all the hairs in a contiguous location?

good luck.

Spanish Dude
11-19-2010, 02:09 PM

dude, are you there?

11-19-2010, 04:04 PM
Hi Spanish Dude

There is a little bleeding from the needle spots, and not that long of a session ...It took about 1 hour for about 120 plucks

If you listen to Cooley's presentation you will get the gist of the technique



Spanish Dude

Hi Spanish Dude

Hi, PVT, thanks for the reply.

bleeding from the needle spots? I don't understand. Does Cooley use a needle for the plucking procedure? I mean, in the donor site?

1 hour for 120 plucks (2 hairs per minute), looks to me like a good yield, considering that this is still in early stages. But are all these 120 plucked hairs viable? None of them were discarded? Do you mean 120 viable hairs per hour?

11-20-2010, 08:53 AM
Hi, PVT, thanks for the reply.

bleeding from the needle spots? Yes The spots he placed the plucked hairs..

He added about 120 into the center of my scar and FUE white/bald spots

I don't understand. Does Cooley use a needle for the plucking procedure? I mean, in the donor site?

The donor is tweezed and no blood

1 hour for 120 plucks (2 hairs per minute), looks to me like a good yield, considering that this is still in early stages. But are all these 120 plucked hairs viable?
Only time will tell......

None of them were discarded?

That I dont know ....but ether way they will grow back as if tweezed

Do you mean 120 viable hairs per hour?

He can do larger sessions now then mid last year ....Mine was a very small test ........ dont know how many he can do per hour

Spanish Dude
11-20-2010, 09:56 AM
>>The donor is tweezed and no blood
but Cooley talked about "redness, pinpoint bleeding" on the donor site on a woman patient. thats why I was asking. (Sorry that I insist so much).

re. the rate, do you mean all those 120 extracted hairs were planted in the recipient?

(I forgot to say before: I already watched Cooley's slide presentation, several times, it is a very good presentation).

12-16-2010, 10:39 AM
How's it looking pvtpoint2010?

12-16-2010, 02:56 PM
Nothing much to say yet...i'm going to ask my barber to take a close look next week

Spanish Dude
01-20-2011, 01:31 PM
pvtpoint2010, any news? its 4 months already.

02-24-2011, 04:17 AM
7 days ago he posted that many in the scar grow, so it seems that the plucked hair in fact created another working follicle which is very very good :-)

And no 120 hairs per hour is not a good yield because its really time consuming thats why it is essential to work exactly on the time factor.

I would say 400 to 500 hairs per hour would be a good yield.

People have around 100.000 hairs and your NW7 baldie has around 20.000 visible. Now do the math how long it would take for him to get back to NW1 with

1) 120 per hour
2) 500 per hour

given the fact that after 9 months the hair grows back in the donor area

02-25-2011, 11:06 AM
So what happened with the tests? Can you update us pvtpoin?

03-29-2011, 12:27 AM
Pvtpoint, what happened to your results? How is everything coming along? How are the results looking? Please remember what it felt to be in the dark with all this ACell information, now you can give us a better insight, try to keep us informed and posted

08-31-2011, 04:22 AM
My barber was looking through my donor area after a short cut a few days ago and still saw several hairs growing within the scar from the test.....she however couldn't see any improvement in the white FUE spots

If you remember from past posts I had 3 spots plucked out and filled with ACELL and planted several plucked hairs into several others by Dr Cooley late last year.....but nothing much to report.....

I also contacted a few Doc's over the past few weeks and received the following ACELL update from each office..

Dr Cooley has not gotten back to me as of yet....

Dr Feller is still NOT using ACELL at all.............

Dr Bernstein commented that he is NOT 100% happy with his results sofar....He feels in some cases its just ok and in others it may even be a hindrance.

He feels at times it makes the skin much softer and more prone to stretch....He still however feels more time is needed to make his final assessment

Dr Cole's office feels ACELL has shown promise to regrow donor FUE hairs and reduce white dotting scars

Though the office gave me an actual % of FUE donor regroth I feel the number may have been exaggerated so wont post it at this time

However if the % is even close to being true it would be remarkable !

Any other ACELL researchers or test patients THAT have more input please reply....!!....

09-04-2011, 03:34 AM
Interesting comments by Dr Bernstein


09-07-2011, 03:20 AM
would also be interesting to know how Dr Bernstien repaired the `stretched soft ` skin in the donor area , as in did it stretch again if revised ? would be good to hear from him



09-07-2011, 03:49 AM
So, thats interesting. So far we have the following plucking situation

1) Cooley does it

2) Feller doesnt

3) Bernstein not 100% happy (open for interpretation) some cases good and some not. The reults may vary BUT there is regeneration in fact a slight hair multiplication so to speak

4) Dr Cole does it and he is positive about it

So from those 100%, 75% are involved and got results which vary from good to not good

Interesting, seems Gho is not that UNPLAUSIBLE like people want him to be

Without the hype no one is going to get into the chair so that these docs can experiment. They are on the same level as carnival barker. That's right, step right up and be amazed.
