    Aderans... Possibly some promising news?

    Hmm.... found this today. Maybe Histogen has some stiffer competition.

    We'll see. Basically, they're expanding their Phase II trials to additional cities. Maybe some of you want to try it out?


    From Earth Times...

    Aderans Research Institute Inc. (ARI) said today it has expanded its clinical trials on hair regeneration by an additional seven cities in the United States.

    Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 4, 2010 -- Aderans Research Institute Inc. (ARI) said today it has expanded its clinical trials on hair regeneration by an additional seven cities in the United States. Las Vegas, NV; Los Angeles, CA; and New Hyde Park, NY, have been added through clinical site company Impact Clinical Trials. Tucson, AZ; St. Louis, MO; Birmingham, AL; and St. Petersburg, FL, have been added through clinical site company Radiant Research.

    Collectively, the Radiant and Impact sites will add around 80 new subjects to the study. Combined with at least twenty new additions at a site hosted by TKL Research, the second phase of ARI’s clinical study will surpass 200 subjects in total, a remarkable number of participants for a Phase 2 trial.

    “The expansion of our study reflects not only the significance of the investment made by Aderans Co. Ltd of Japan, but also our confidence that we’re getting closer to a commercial viable solution to the problems of hair loss,” said Vern Liebmann, Vice President, Operations.

    Added ARI Executive Vice President Ken Washenik M.D., Ph.D., “We’ve received some encouraging results from our initial Phase 2 studies and we’re eager to expand the trial, add new protocols, and refine our knowledge of the hair multiplication and regeneration process.”

    Kurt Stenn M.D., Vice President of Research and Chief Scientific Officer, commented, “It is gratifying to see our research being steadily confirmed in our clinical work.”

    Phase 2 launched in November of 2008. Phase 1 of ARI’s clinical study began in September of 2006 and concluded in February of 2008.

    Great. I guess the only thing missing now is Follica coming out with some promising news, then we'll have 4 companies on their way to beating this ****, Follica, Aderans, Histogen and Trichoscience.

    My hope lies with Follica and Histogen. Not only is their approach simpler, but it'll also probably be much cheaper IF, and it's a big if, it does come to market.
    God, grant me the serenity
    To accept the things I cannot change;
    Courage to change the things I can;
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    yeah i'm liking Histogen myself too. Clearly less invasive in that they don't need to cut into you for any reason.... just the injections. However, Aderans seems to be further ahead in their trials. I guess we'll see.

    I'm running out of time.... I need something to work like now.

    Though I don't really know that Aderans has posted any real results have they?

    i wouldn't go on a medical trail if you are bothered by hairloss
    from what i heard of the intercytex trails the patients have a square part of multiplied hair and had to have really short hair and were not allowed to take minox or fin
    soo not for anyone on minox, fin or with a nw below 5

    adreans are probs gonna be the first to market hm but i can imagine it will come at a price....it'll cost more than a HT for sure
    strangely this information is realised only soon after they bought intercytex so they obviously obtained some useful scientific data from TRC

    Great point on both counts. I forgot they bought Intercytex.

    Yeah I wouldn't stop taking fin and rogaine for a study for sure.

    I guess we'll see what they work out. I don't care what the price is. If it works, I'll somehow figure out a way. Here's to hoping!

    phase 0 to market is up to 8 years

    ARI has done phase 1 and started phase 2 last year
    assuming things go ok i'll give it 5-7 years before it comes to market

    Exactly. That's why it's not worth dwelling on future treatments. They might happen, or they might not. If they do happen, they'll likely be too late for it to matter for any of us.

    I plan my future 'as if' they're never going to happen, since I believe this is the safest and most effective mindset to hold.
