The article says:

"With the funding of clinical research, the research can be started within a year. The first target is androgenetic alopecia, whose mechanism is clear, and the period will be about one and a half years."

Once funded human studies can start within 1 year and then the treatment can go to market after 1 1/2 years. This means it should go to market approx 2 1/2 years after they get the necessary funding. If they got the necessary funding today it should hit the market in 2023.

No chance anybody here knows. This question just leads to blind speculation.
Blind speculator here, the answer is no. The prices they wanted to charge are insane and anyone with money probably realizes that there is no profit long term for this, as they will eventually be beaten by a competitor seeing that 4-5 companies are now roughly in the same spot (that we know of, maybe more like L'oreal behind close doors).

Maybe some uber rich Japenese bald dudes takes a flyer and fund the initiative or a company offers them a partnership to redo the pricing and market plan, but no investment fund or serious investor is touching this.

The total new investments needed equal about $15M right? If you could market Tsuji's solution in 2 years or so, I guess there would be enough celebrities, royalty, business tycoons, athletes and other filthy rich people to even get a profit on that investment even with those crazy prices. I think the tech itself is also not that good (yet).

I think he needed 4 million to do the first trials and something after, so sure it could be 15 million. Did you their price targets to be part of the full trials? They were planning to charge people 500-800k to be a lab rat after the safety & proof of human success trial. What celebrity or rich person is signing up to do that? Most of these guys have to be in the public eye and are not going to risk getting botched and spending insane money to do it.

I would totally do it. If it works in phase I then what is there to go wrong in phase II?

Also, I think the Japanese government pays the fee for participating in the clinical trial. As long as you're a trial participant I think it's free of charge for the patient.

There are much better and cheaper ones than Tsuji. There's Stemson, Yokohama, L'Oreal. Tsuji is not the be all and end all, there's others out there too.
I know, but I'm losing density real quick. I can't afford another 5 more years... :(

It can work in a patch of 1cm, but it doesn't prove anything about the long term durability of the procedure. Even if I'm worth well into the 8 figures, why would I pay for this without a serious guarantee of outcome? At that level of wealth you can have the most indistinguishable hairpiece custom crafted for you and get much better assurance of quality if you're that desperate for hair just like a few of the top Hollywood guys are doing. Also, if what you said is true, why would they even bother releasing prices for clinical trial patients?

I think it should be obvious to everyone that something is clearly wrong here, otherwise they would have already closed an investment deal for the initial 4 million and been in preparation of human trials.

Not very patriotic, nor much of a gentleman, nor in possession of any sort of sense of humor, are we now, byebyehair?

Eh. Baldness is a hard cross to bear so I give you a pass but please state what your objections are to any statements that I make in the future so I can take note and improve myself but just hitting dislike does very little for anyone and it kind of hurts my feelings, to be honest.
