    Developed at the University of Florida, our formula is the first to deliver IGF-1 locally and in tiny but effective doses. IGF-1 is known to stimulate hair regrowth, but we are the first to deliver it right to hair follicles with minimal risk for side effects.

    There is alot of research on this angle, and they seem confident. Everyone should signup as that probably how their gauging interest. If all goes well we could have this by the end of the year as it doesnt need FDA approval because they dont recognize it as a drug so it will be classified as a cosmetic use.

    Going to post some studies

    [h=1]The expression of insulin-like growth factor 1 in follicular dermal papillae correlates with therapeutic efficacy of finasteride in androgenetic alopecia.[/h]http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12894070

    [h=1]Exogenous IGF-1 promotes hair growth by stimulating cell proliferation and down regulating TGF-β1 in C57BL/6 mice in vivo.[/h]http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24797500
    "Local injection of IGF-1 increased hair follicle number and prolonged the growing phase during the transition from anagen to telogen"

    Well... its a promoter, so thats at least positive seeing how every baldie is masturbating over inhibitors. All the DHT in the world being blocked isnt going to reverse hair loss.

    Absolutely ridiculous they don't need FDA approval. IGF-1 is a drug. How is that any different than minoxidil? Sadly, they're using Follicept to promote their patch. How is the gel supposed to fare on hair in combination with minoxidil? I'm not convinced.

    I hope I am wrong though.

    Ok so IGF-1 is an anti-androgen for DHT or what??
    I have heard that when DHT comes in contact with body hair it makes IGF-1 which causes facial hair growth but we all know that it can't be the same with hair follicles right??

    Could anyone PLS clear the science behind it??

    It appears they even't tested it on humans otherwise they would know for certain if it works at all.

    This guys tried to fund their project with indiegogo. They made 13k$.
    And then they said they will use the money made with this "stuff" just for funding their patch. I've seen lot of thing but a innovative better working minoxdil made by a bunch of guys out of nowhere it's hard to believe.
    I read the pdf they linked somewhere, no extensive study just common know info about igf-1 and then that pic, i don't think this will lead to anything REALLY working or a miracle minoxidil...

    it's like minoxidil, it can't reverse miniaturitation but give you new hair and follicle maybe MAYBE. Anyway they seems so naive, i will never believe they will provide us a minoxidil without shedding and sides, it's near impossible come on they found out they could milk the baldies easly cuz we are desperate, and guess it, they are right lol

    i hate to be a skeptical negative bitch, i signed in and i hope this guys can change my life with their product, hope is last to die

    One of them is answering questions on BTT.
    They will only release this product when they have good results and will post the negative results if there is one.
