Yeah that picture was when the hairs were growing subdermally and not penetrating through the skin barrier. They have overcome that with the biodegradable scaffoldI agree with you. They showed a picture of their ISPC follicles compared to normal human follicles and they look like different creatures. They're shaped wrongly. How they will fix this is beyond me. It seems like they're headed sideways and not forward. This is very bad news. Until this can be worked out I don't even see the point in testing much in pig models. They have to figure out how to generate a follicle that looks normal first because the example they show is misshapen.
Actually, maybe Geoff Hamilton does visit this forum? I actually sent the press secretary this discussion, explaining it was 91 pages long at the time, all about Stemson. They might be curious about what's being discussed about them that they're not aware of. This in order to address the public's questions. At least we do know they are really testing in pigs now but the shame is they don't even know how to make a proper follicle. There will not be cosmetically acceptable results until this gets resolved. Now the question is has any group or scientist cloned a follicle that has a normal shape?
