    You really have the best posts, Desmond. I especially like your quote "We have to think outside the box as Nigam does. We have to try different methods and not fear the unknown but embrace it, experiment with it!". We have to focus on other methods to regrow hair and not simply focus on hair transplants and derivatives of moving hair from one place to another. And that's what I like about Dr. Nigam; at least he is willing to explore other methods for hair restoration.

    And that Patrick Overton quote is very profound.

    I tend to agree with you. Women's hair loss is treated with compassion and empathy yet men's hair loss is ridiculed and joked about. This double standard is staggering.

    If you grow a follicle on a pig, then transplant it, will the human body eventually reject it, as it is a foreign organ?

    To pay you with the same money: you should get a short cut because all this hair covering your eyes does not let you see what's going on around.

    Who talked about women controlling the world, having wealth and power, keeping men in shadow? This appears only in your message, even if you say it only in order to deny it (which is correct). I talked about much power when it comes to aesthetics business. Much of this industry revolves around women, they are the dominant force in this market. All I am saying is that if there was pressure from the part of women about men's hair loss, a solution would already be available; or at least hair systems for men would be perfected and more acceptable.

    I do not understand why this is posted on the bald truth talk forum. I asked my dermatologist about transplanting someones hair to anothers persons head. He said that this was impossible. Why should this work? Im always open but i dont want to become happy for nothing.

    Obviously you missed the link I posted previously. Here is the crucial excerpt:

    "[The success of pig-human transplants] has very little to do with whether there's a two per cent or 20 per cent difference in the genome sequence — if those numbers actually meant anything anyway — the main barrier is caused by just one gene," says Moran.

    That gene is called galactose-alpha-1,3,galactotransferase — gal-transferase for short . All mammals except humans and higher apes have a working version of gal-transferase, which coats cells with an antigen (a molecule that our immune system reacts to). This means if pig tissue is transplanted into humans our immune system will mount a drastic rejection response as our bodies detect the antigen and attack it.

    Scientists have come up with a solution to stop tissue rejection: genetically modifying the pigs by eliminating the gal-transferase gene. A few more human genes are also added to the pigs to make the pig tissue even more acceptable to our immune system.


    I had no idea about it before, but this is what says a professor of animal genetics.

    wow now i get it. So this means that they could eliminate the gal-transferase gene if we would transfer hair from human to human?

    Something like that I guess. Genetic modifications can do wonders, but there are regulations also holding them back.

    man F those people who created the legislations. Siriously i am aware of the cons genetic mods can bring but people forget that it can really help us improve our health care.

    So are they giving these scientists the permission to start the research? the guy in the article talked about growing an organ in 1 year? how long do you think it will take them to grow hair?
