Proven in mice.Human DP cell + epithelial cell injections has already proven to create real new follicles
Hair Follicle Generation by Injections of Adult Human Follicular Epithelial and Dermal Papilla Cells into Nude MiceDermal papilla and hair epithelial stem cells regulate hair formation and the growth cycle. Damage to or loss of these cells can cause hair loss. Although several studies claim to reconstitute hairs using rodent cells in an animal model, additional research ...www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
. No study has shown robust hair follicle formation with successful cycling and good hair quality though . So I think this technology is really far away . At least until gene editing of the DP cells can be done
And already proven to not work in humans.
But HC is not aiming hair follicle formation. They speculate they can replace the dying dp cells of miniaturized hairs with new ones and that this would make the hair follicle to become normal again.
