    I mean no disrespect my friend. But there was clearly no news that was exciting or you would have reported it.

    There was, I just don't want to have the conversations scattered around before I post the presentations. In due time, theres about 49 more presentation videos I gotta make. I'm going to try to get a bunch done today

    Hey hey hey don't you stick up for them lol. C'mon hardly anybody shows up and more talk of effluvium than genetic hairloss? If your livelihood is trying to solve hairloss or treat it I feel like Japan is not that bad of a stretch.

    Well, it's not so much a strategy to keep everyone on their toes, it really is all about organization. I don't want to skip around presentations. It's much easier for me to go in chronological order as well.

    Ok, so I spent some time getting audio editing software setup. Using an app called 'Fission' to split up the talks. After that, I had to look around for a watermarking tool. I thought Lightroom would do it, but it doesn't do sequential numbers watermarked INTO the image. Why? Because should anything happen to my uploads or if anyone wants to keep files, this way you know which order they are in according to the presentation. I tried looking for a bunch of apps that do this, and the only good automated app was Photo Mechanic. A bit basic, but it works almost perfectly.

    Next, I need to use After Effects (only video editing software I have) to compile the presentations from the split up audio files. Exporting (or rendering) takes a while, about half the time the presentations last. After that, I run the files through a compressor called 'Handbrake' so upload times are faster along with streaming not being bogged down with a big file just for a single static image with audio. Unfortunately, MP4 with H264 encoding doesn't allow me to set the videos to 1 frame per second (ideal for super low file size) the minimum required is 10fps. I've got everything set at 1080p though, however there is of course the 720p selection from youtube to download only the necessary image quality.

    So, uploading to youtube and imgur is gonna take me a while, but I think I've got the process now which should come easy in the coming days. Lots of content to share and a ton more to see with since I have photos of the slides.

    I would have put the slides into the video files, but I don't have to time to set the time markers of when and for how long each slide shows up for. Further more, I don't have all the slides anyway.

    Thanks for the effort. On paper, Japan seems like a good place to have the event due to their focus on regenerative medicine, # of companies doing research, etc. But logistically it seems like a nightmare for many of the big names. I could understand them not being able to make the trip...still a little disappointing.

    Party! Thanksgiving and Christmas coming so it probably blows until Jan. anyway. If you make it to California, though, beer is on me. BTW, @hellouser, did they professionally record the conference? If so is it available for purchase for purchase?

    California is an easy spot for me to visit, I've got a few friends in Los Angeles. I was there in 2009. Loved it.

    And no, they didn't record everything, there were many signs and screens that tried to refrain people from recording. Didn't matter a whole lot as many people ended up taking photos anyway. Me included.

    The next hair loss drug will be prescribed off label just like Minoxidi and Proscar was.It will be a drug that was made for another use that grows hair. These companys at the conference are just there to keep the investors they are robing happy.

    Merck was well aware of a 5ARI's effect on hair and the prostate. It's hardly the case that proscar just happened to grow hair. It doesn't always end up working that way, and there is no reason for off label use to always be the case. The story of finasteride is so well known that it is posted right here on wikipedia:

    "In 1942, James Hamilton observed that prepubertal castration prevents the later development of male pattern baldness in mature men.[44] In 1974, Julianne Imperato-McGinley of Cornell Medical College in New York attended a conference on birth defects. She reported on a group of intersex children in the Caribbean who appeared sexually ambiguous at birth, and were initially raised as girls, but then grew external male genitalia and other masculine characteristic after onset of puberty. Her research group found these children shared a genetic mutation, causing deficiency of the 5α-reductase enzyme and male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which was found to have been the etiology behind abnormalities in male sexual development. Upon maturation, these individuals were observed to have smaller prostates which were underdeveloped, and were also observed to lack incidence of male pattern baldness.[45][46]

    In 1975, copies of Imperato-McGinley's presentation were seen by P. Roy Vagelos, who was then serving as Merck's basic-research chief. He was intrigued by the notion that decreased levels of DHT led to the development of smaller prostates. Dr. Vagelos then sought to create a drug which could mimic the condition found in these children to treat older men who were suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia.[47]

    Finasteride was developed under the code name MK-906.[citation needed] In 1992, finasteride (5 mg) was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of BPH, which Merck marketed under the brand name Proscar.[citation needed] In 1997, Merck was successful in obtaining FDA approval for a second indication of finasteride (1 mg) for treatment of male pattern baldness, which was marketed under the brand name Propecia."
