    It is to an extent, you just have to plan ahead. RU doesnt go bad that fast. I'm sure you would be able to make a batch that will last for a number of days, or have some kind of refridgeration system nearby to store it. It is a pain then, but that shouldnt be much of a problem for the majority of people.

    I think you've made this point before though, what do you do for a living that requires so much travel?

    Why would all these doctors around the world bother repeating the same experiment as Histogen?
    I have listened to it. It really did make a cosmetic difference for the women on that poster. Incidentally, go have a read of that again. It clearly says that Ziering's trial was 20 injections only..

    What do you mean, all these doctors?? It's only Ziering and he's in the US. The reason for Ziering's trial is because Histogen want a physician-sponsored trial to support their IND application. It is different from Histogen's in a couple of ways. First it involves men AND women, and second it doesn't involve head shaving (because it's not an option for most women). It's also in the US. The other trials have been in Honduras & the Philippines.

    Histogen is great guys, makes things a lot easier. If the science about PDG2 enzyme is correct, products that inhibit it in conjuction with Histogen SHOULD provide regrowth.

    Just my opinion buy in terms of the science and ability to make REAL solutions, our future is bright. It is just a matter of having these things available to us and easily accessible + readily able to use. I don't really concern myself with hair multiplication unlimited donor supply etc, i dont expect it in the next 5 years personally but just the fact histogens formula is working (at low potency mind you), is good news.

    Why assume this is an alternative to finasteride instead of an adjunct? Do we necessarily know it will maintain hair long term, like oral DHT inhibitors?
    Also keep in mind, 20-25% increase in baseline hair count means for every 4-5 existing hairs, you get 1 more. 2020 is right that existing treatments can best this figure.
    Right now I'm seeing it more as someone else said, 1 component of the "big 4." Maybe it will be more effective when it hits the market.

    I guess, some hair growth is a major improvement, but have to say I hoped for more and that it is hard to judge how much(if any) improvent on pictures like that.

    Hey guys,

    I've been doing a bit of research to see where Histogen is actually at. So this is what I found:

    1) Histogen's Phase I/II study is actually a bit misleading. What they actually meant was: Histogen HSC solution is in Phase I, the device they used was in Phase II.

    2) Histogen Phase IIa trial will be a 6 month study from Feb 2013 - July 2013. This will be a "dose-range finding" study, where they will test what the maximum number of injections they can give someone without causing any harm.

    3) Phase IIb will be a 12 month "pivotal, safety & efficacy study" and should begin sometimes in Sep 2013 and end in sep 2014.

    4) If all goes well, Phase III will be another 12 month trial in a large population probably 500-1000 subjects and should end sometimes in October 2015.

    5) Add 3-4 months for FDA approval and we should have this product on the market early 2016.

    Hope this clarifies everything guys, and sorry about misinforming everyone last week. The whole Phase I/II threw me off as well.

    All the best

    Thats 3 years until it hits the Asian market? It will be even longer for the US.


    A lot of hair can be lost in 3 years. You could advance a couple of norwoods.

    Tell me about it

    We should all jump on the finasteride wagon till then. At least we have something to use.

    Histogen's 2016 release should give most hairloss sufferers enough density to carry us to 2020.

    By 2020, hopefully Aderans & Replicel will have a real solution for hairloss once and for all.

    Most important thing is fin is vital to keep things together till then!

    I can't and won't do Fin. The sides are worse than balding for me but I am looking at alternative treatments.

    You're kidding!

    Have you experienced sides on it? or you're just not too comfortable with the list of side effects?
