    Default Follica 2018! Clearance FDA trial imminent. Thoughts?

    So everyone must have seen the exciting news about Follica and Puretech's new (RAIN) product. I was wondering what people think? They say it will be 3 to 4X better than existing treatments. What does this mean as far as growth?

    where is the 3 to 4x as effective part coming from? considering existing treatments pretty much do nothing, 3 to 4 x 0 is still not very impressive.

    Your link still has them in Phase 2.

    In any event, if it really is 3-4x as effective as current treatments, that's a pretty huge deal. Not the cure per se that many of us are looking for, but a massive jump in the right direction.

    "As a result, we believe that there is a significant unmet need for safe, effective, non-surgical treatments which grow new hair "

    Understatement of the century

    "expect to initiate a pivotal trial in the first half of 2018" on the link. That's the final go to market trial. The graph is misleading.

    What graph are you talking about--the one with the yellow bar that ends in "Phase 2"?
