    If these new treatment are only rejuvenating/activating existing follicles/stem cells, then great - keep making injections until your hair is as thick as you want.

    The problem is if they'll ignore existing stem cells/follicles and try growing BRAND NEW FOLLICLES. This would look awful as hair will start appearing in random places among the rest of your thinning hair..... also, what about women? What's the point of cloning shitty follicles?
    imo, i doubt histogen is creating brand new follicles, they are witnessing revival of dormant follciles.

    sounds like people are reading too much into it. even if it actually creates completely new hair follicle in areas treated with HSC, i doubt many will complain about using the area treated with HSC as 'donor area' to perform additional FUE's using those 'completely new hair follicles.'

    it says right on their site:

    http://www.histogen.com/products/hsc.htm

    The next clinical trial of HSC is currently in planning stages, and is scheduled to begin in Singapore in early 2011, with plans for pan-Asian approval in 2014. Estimated U.S. market introduction of the injectable for hair regrowth in the treatment of male pattern baldness is 2015, with potential for earlier introduction in certain identified countries.

    Exclamation

    Since the efficacy of HSC in treating hair loss has not yet been established, nobody really knows whether it's ever going to be brought to market, much less when.

    10000000% their treatment WILL be brought to market. Can't say how efficient it will be but it will probably work for best for women with thinning hair and men with minimal to moderate hair loss (although with multiple injection you may even be able to fix NW4+)

    They're just using growth factors! It's simple science. The only problem with their treatment is that it does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING against MPB so you will continue to go bald....

    Not among people who actually know what they're talking about.

    who are they? What is their argument? How could Histogen possibly fail? They already showed growth...

    How can they fail? Do you know how many drugs show efficacy and look promising in phase II and then when they get dosed into a larger population (ie. Phase III) fail? Lots of them. This is not guaranteed to make it to market by any stretch of the imagination. I certainly hope it comes out but, there is still much that needs to be proven on their end.
