So I contacted a stem cell clinic in Sydney (Australia) about their adipose derived stem cell treatment for alopecia.
I got a response telling me that this less invasive treatment would be good to try before or in conjunction with ADSC therapy . This was actually patented by the doctor who runs this clinic. Anyway, I had a look at the study which used a topical zinc Thymulin spray comprising of Citrix acid, sodium bicarbonate, water and 0.0005% ZT. The process of making this was as follows:
After peptide synthesis the residual trifluoroacetic acid and resin cleavage chemicals were removed by lyophilization with 10% acetic acid, repeated three times. Attachment of the zinc ion was performed by mixing thymulin with zinc oxide (1:3 w/w) in 10% acetic acid and lyophilized to yield ZT. The compound was then dissolved in distilled water with preservatives benzoic acid, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate.
Citric acid and sodium bicarbonate were used as buffers that resulted in a colorless and odorless solution at pH 5.4. The product given to subjects was a 100 ml spray bottle containing 0.0005% ZT as the active test agent.
Subjects were instructed to spray 1-2 ml of solutio
ZT solution. The subjects used 1-2ml 2 x daily. These were the results.
There were no side effects of significance, did not interact badly with any other treatments.
Now this clinic sells this stuff, but they charge $2400AUD for a year supply or $3600AUD for 2 years supply.
Some of you may be interested in tinkering around with this to see if you can’t formulate your own version of this topical. If nothing else it could be a good addiction to existing treatments.
If you want to contact the clinic, then you can google this and find the company easily.
Thanks for reading friends.
