    This is very strange for you guys. I've scanned through the topic and saw no before-after photos, nothing in the Internet. Are there any?
    How can we be sure that is not another snake oil? :(

    Btw, I am excited :D

    No photos yet, we're not sure of anything. There's an announcement coming in the next couple months, until then everything is speculative, although there's reason to be excited

    I'm hearing fewer and fewer mentions of Androgenetic Alopecia specifically. Really, isn't it just us convincing ourselves of what we want to be true against all signs to the contrary? How is no one else worried by this sudden turn in rhetoric?

    It just feels like so many companies throw in a few mentions of Androgenetic Alopecia in the beginning to kick up publicity and generate interest then slowly switch to some condescending BS rationalization along the lines of their product being intended for other forms of hairloss – you know, "real diseases".

    As someone said before, the quotes being discussed recently were taken from a context where AA was being discussed, so there was no real need to bring up Androgenetic Alopecia. We can't really take much from Facebook posts, I'm sure the patient and the Doctor didn't expect their comments to be picked up and discussed like this haha, it's not like they were official statements

    I take it as them wanting to be politically correct.

    It might harm their image to make products for Androgenetic Alopecia, so they're focusing on AA.

    We've got 3 photos.
    One child, AA patient (incredible regrowth)
    Two women, Androgenetic Alopecia patients (but so shitty photos...)

    You cant be sure its not another snake oil. I wouldnt be surprised if the phrase "Brotzu's lotion" is a running punchline around these parts in a few years. Of course Id love to be proven wrong.

    Does anyone know how effective minoxidil is for AA? One thing that seems sure is that this lotion works well for AA (the case of the child and possibly the woman on fb judging by her reaction).

    What I want to know is, could minoxidil use have grown back their hair or not? Knowing this could be a way of gauging this lotion's general effectiveness vs minoxidil.

    Interesting point, I'd guess that in the case of the female patient, she's already tried minoxidil (much like many of us here). I mean she said something like it's the most hair she's had in five years, I can't imagine she'd go five years without at least trying min

    That's what I thought too... she probably tried female minoxidil in the past and it didn't work.

    She posted some rather combative comments on her fb, it seems she is annoyed by the intrusion on her privacy. Yet I hope if it works for her she will post pics of herself showing the hair growth.

    The waiting to hear concrete evidence on Brotzu's lotion is killing me!

    We have a lot of anecdotal evidence, hearsay and a few crappy pictures but nothing solid! The science behind it does sound solid and Brotzu is a well respected researcher but I need more to put my mind at ease. News from fidia can't come soon enough.

    Absolutely! I would be willing to go to Italy just to buy a large quantity of this - and help the local economy. And if Fidia drops it, let's hope other companies in the country will seize this chance.

    The best thing we can do right now is to keep sharing information. And when the lotion hits the market, don't forget to spread the word and make this a great success for Fidia. There are many drugs that were discontinued because of poor sales and we don't want that to happen here.

    It doesn't revive dead follicles so if their hair lines have been that way for many years it can't help them.

    I don't know much about AA but it is a completely different mechanism than Androgenetic Alopecia and I don't think their follicles "die". But I could be wrong

    Basically Androgenetic Alopecia and aa are completely different regarding hair follicles but let's stay away from that long science convo. Just keep searching on new info about the lotion and post it on here. There seems to be good news coming out every other day about this stuff and it really helps me feel better when I come on here and see it. Keep it up guys
