You see this is where the vast majority of people fail to understand. The concept or "idea" of hair cloning/ hair loss cure has been thrown around for decades. There were a few major drawbacks then compared to now. The science of hair loss was overwhelmingly limited, the research in the past 5 years alone has shown more information about hair loss than all those years ago. But if you somehow disagree with that, then there is also the matter of technology. The technology of today is vastly superior to that of 10 years ago. When you have the combination of both poor science + lack of technology as well as giving hope to the public for years on end despite the hurdles that you face, it slowly creates despair in those who've been suffering hair loss for decades and that same hopelessness gets passed onto the newer generations, to have your hopes low because look at what happened to us. And the same argument gets brought up, that, "oh such and such company failed to bring a cure all those years ago so what's different now?" Maybe I'm wrong but the vast majority of people online are pessimistic based off of old technology and limited science and don't want to accept the advancements that have been made. I mean it was only 2 years ago where a scaffold was created in order to help the direction of the hair follicle, this was unheard of 5 years ago. Stemson has already moved onto pigs, and supposedly that has made advancements despite Alexey thinking it would take time for that to happen. I'm sure that you will disagree with me and that's fine. AR antagonist that don't produce systemic side effects with solid science and a large sample size, when was that even considered a possibility between 1992-2015? And you're talking about Intercytex, I might be wrong but wasn't that a thing in 2006? The science and technology were nowhere near as to what they are now. Do you mind me asking how old you are?
Technology is always improving, but this doesn't mean that other fields of knowledge improve at the same pace. This is a simple truth for scientists that study the human body. Results come slowly. It is not pessimism. It is a truth.

Moore's Law is not applicable to hairloss study. Just have patience or start moving to change your situation. For hair loss, unrealistic hope or optimism can be way more dangerous than a dose of of pessimism.

That’s fine to have your opinions I’m not wanting to persuade people. I’ll just be disappointed that if these inventions were to come to light and all of those pessimistic individuals will also take benefit of these advancements.

New job listing from Stemson for a "Cell Culture Technician" https://apply.workable.com/stemson-therapeutics/j/08E189FE41/

Not sure if this is good news that they're trying to speed things up or it means that they're only now just starting to begin to prepare for pig trials. Any thoughts on this @trialAcc ?
I don’t think they are beginning to prepare for pig trials because that guy on the Fortunis video did say that the process had been trialed on pigs a couple months back. So if I had to guess I think the former is right and they’re trying to speed up the process.

Any hiring is "good news" in some sense. I wouldn't look too much into it unless it was something very telling such as "clinical trail lead" or a group of mass hiring's asking for experience in human phase 1/2 trial settings or something. They can also finish their proof of concept pig and get started preparing for human trials but still be doing longer trials on pigs and even mice at the same time using altered methods, density, coverage, etc.

Smt not repetetive, I included Stemson to my scientific paper of "stem cell (-research)" xD

We all have some kind of Stemson fanboy vibes in us Ig lol

I was talking about froggy's constant negativity and hopelessness
Dear froggy,

hair loss will be cured at some point in the next few decades. Stem cell technology and research is like a train getting faster and faster, which cant be stopped! iPS-breakthrough happened 2006, so not much time between now and then. We should be happy that a fuctional hair loss cure is backed with investors. My only concern is if it will not be as effective for Androgenetic Alopecia as it would be for scarring alopecia (fungi infection/chemotherapy/etc.)

Keep a fresh mind, you dont need to be concernd, at the end its just hair, + you will have it at some point in an amazing condition.

Bye!

Though for Stemson to be successful in a few decades would be highly unlikely. Their whole operation would collapse well before that, they would not receive any more funding from Allergan nor Fortunis. If they are to be successful it would have to be in the coming 3/4 years. Their clinical trials are highly likely to take place next year some time, a few decades for commercialization since the starting of their human clinical trials is impossible my friend.

Yeah I was just saying that at maximum we will have a(/n) (affordable) cure at some point in the next 20 years (from now - 2041).Wether it will be Stemson or some other company popping out. Hope you get my point.
