    Default Histogen?s HSC Complex - An In Depth Discussion

    The hair loss world is buzzing about Histogenís small, but impressive pilot clinical trial. Despite some much talked about setbacks, it looks like itís “all systems go” for the San Diego based startup.Last year Histogen was forced to layoff thirty six of itís employees after itís fundraising efforts were stifled when a rival company located [...]

    I'd love to become actively involved with this company. Don't suppose they need a corporate secretary who'll take a pay cut in return for share options and a try of the formula?

    I have a few questions about Histogen:

    1. How many injections were administered (2009 trial, on 25 subjects)?

    2. Could the drug be used successfully in areas that have received hair transplantation?

    3. Would the directions of new hairs need to be controlled? If so, how would this be accomplished?

    4. Would newly-developed hairs risk "interfering" with existing follicles (i.e., crowding the space and altering the natural directions of prior hairs)?

    5. If one injection covers even a reasonable amount of area (i.e., greater than of a few tightly-packed follicular units), how would one prevent hair from growing where it's not wanted (e.g., on the forehead, if the drug is used near the anterior scalp)?

    6. Would the drug produce hair anywhere it were administered, even if the area never grew hair, previously (e.g., palms)?

    Thank you.

    They claimed to have one injection in the year.

    As far as I've heard, Histogen reactivates dormant cells. That should answer 3-6.

    I'm not sure about the second question, that would be interesting to know.

    It also stimulates growth of entirely new cells.

    Right, this idea of stimulating the growth of hair where previously there was none, is what confuses me to how the process would be controlled — its effects strictly contained to where they are desired, prevented from affected areas in which one wants no growth.

    Also, I'm concerned new hairs might push around existed ones such the overall appearance is cosmetically unpleasant.

    Even if Histogen's product works, I think at least these two points must be addressed if one is to be hopeful of its practical utility.
