    "These come from alopecia patients, after hair surgery, but it is also possible to take a patient’s own cells and multiply them in a laboratory."

    As far as I'm aware, cell multiplication is the thing that's been holding hair cloning back anyway - the cells degrade more with each generation they're multiplied into.

    Cosmetic companies have loads of money and finally one of them seems interested in investing in finding a real treatment not some bullshit lotion. So just keep our fingers crossed.

    Yes! They seem really confident as well. I haven't seen anything mentioned about time. How far are they in this ?

    I hope they crack it... but if it comes down to getting cells to multiply through enough generations without degrading, I'd bet on one of the teams that have already had a few years' headstart on the problem.

    Tsuji is very close to cracking the culturing problem.

    In theory it may be here soon, i.e. proof of concept.

    In practice however, it's years away.

    I've been somewhat aware of his approach but hadn't yet seen anything not involving a mouse study.
