Hello guys, I need your help. Please write your questions and help me to prepare for the congress. I will attend presentations written below, record them and post in another thread on Monday/Tuesday. Hope I will get interviews from the presenters as well. 1) R. HOFFMANN, K. MCELWEE (GERMANY) - TOWARDS A CELL-BASED THERAPY FOR PATTERN BALDNESS: CHALLENGES, SETBACKS, SUCCESSES AND OUTLOOK 2) E. WANG, AM. CHRISTIANO (USA) - JAK INHIBITORS SHOW EFFICACY IN TREATMENT OF ALOPECIA AREATA 3) C. HIGGINS (UK) - DERMAL CONDENSATIONS AND PAPILLAE IN HAIR DEVELOPMENT 4) E. KALABUSHEVA, E. VOROTELYAK (RUSSIA) - EARLY STEPS OF HAIR FOLLICLE REGENERATION IN VITRO 5) E. VOROTELYAK, AL. RIPPA, E. KALABUSHEVA, E. CHERMNYKH, A. TERSKIKH, V. TERSKIKH (RUSSIA) - HAIR FOLLICLE MORPHOGENESIS AND RECONSTRUCTION 6) C. HIGGINS (UK) - WHAT'S NEW IN BASIC HAIR RESEARCH? 7) A. ZLOTOGORSKI, Y. OVCHARENKO (ISRAEL) - WHAT'S NEW IN CLINICAL HAIR RESEARCH? Here are questions by F2005, Willy31, GotHair? Of course I won't be able to ask all the questions therefore I will try to chose the most relevant. 1. I believe number 5 is from those researchers that made hair follicles from stem cells (on rats though) The question for them would be if they plan to start clinical trials soon? Some time back Sanford-Burnham got some major funding however the sceptic in me is thinking that they are still in preclinical work 2. As for Replicel I'm thinking it will be mostly how they can't get regulatory approval in Germany. 3. A guy has advanced this theory : "There will never be a drug that will recover the lost hair after the follicle has been inactive for several years . If the follicle is dead for some hair cycles, it is dead for good , all researchers seem to show (even Brotzu puts a limit of five years from its seemingly miraculous potion ...) " This is not the first time I hear that kind of comment. There are even those who think the skin eventually heal some point. If this is true , for someone who has a big thick crown, he still has as solution the graft and maybe cloning, but for a guy like me nothing more , that's scary! This is a very important and very relevant ! If this theory proves true , types completions bald would be doomed to remain so for the rest of their lives. Although an effective cream or a cloning process were to emerge , it will benefit. It is an abomination ! Hence the urgency to find a treatment as soon as possible for those who , like me, are completely recently. What do you think? 4. I loss all my hair because I took many bad medicaments (Prozac, Risperidone, Concerta) during many years at very very very very very high dose. I have NOTHING (ZERO) hair since 1 month. I still chance of cure? 5. Do you think that Jak Inhibitor will be effective for a medicinal diffuse alopecia (exemples: antidepressants (Prozac, Lithium), Risperidone, Concerta, others bad medication)? Same treatment will be effective for Androgenetic Alopecia & medicinal alopecia? Is the way the hair falls for both types of hair like ?
