Honestly I'm really surprised someone hasn't posted this earlier, but it seems Aderans has bought all the intellectual property that's been left of Intercytex, I can only see this as being a good thing.

Read the full press release here:

http://www.aderansresearch.com/ari_ournews.html

Aderans is my best hope at the moment, and I think it's encouraging to see that they still seem to continue to make progress after all these years, let's keep our fingers crossed!

Without a doubt I'm also really sure this is why the Aderans stock has risen up as was posted earlier.

This is big news I think, so I'm suprised not many have responded here! So many were depressed when Intercytex went belly-up, but I knew there would likely be a buyout at some point.

Some felt that they went under because the technology had provd to be a failure. But this seems to prove otherwise. Why would they spend all this money to buy the Intercytex patents if they had any doubt about this stuff being for real and something they will cash in on ?

My prediction is that by 2015 this stuff will FINALLY be available. They'll grow your follicles for you in a lab, and you'll have Brad Pitts hair 6 months later after they are implanted. Baldness is soon to be a thing of the past for many who can afford it!

Honestly I really do hope you're right about this stuff being available in 2015, but of course that just goes along with the whole "in just 5 more years" shtick. I mean it gets really tough to be overly enthusiastic about this sort of thing after you've been waiting for it for so long, and I'm sure many of the forum members here, especially the older ones that have been here a while, can definitely agree with that. Nonetheless, I still haven't given up hope, but I'm just more cautious nowadays.

They definitely make some really big positive statements, but one could argue that this could be so more people buy stock into the company so they can make more money. I mean just look at this:

'Through this deal, we've been able to consolidate the majority of key patents and know-how in the hair regeneration field,
an achievement that can accelerate our ability to deliver a commercially viable product to market."

and

'This information should
substantially augment our efforts to create a viable cell-based solution for hair loss.'

One thing I'm curious about is why the stuff was only sold for $200,000. That seems to be kind of a small price for this sort of thing, but then again I remember reading that ICX-TRC didn't perform so well in tests. Aderans, I would assume, has had more practical success than intercytex if they're still continuing with their efforts, since obviously there's no point in wasting money and efforts on a treatment that won't even be commercially viable. You can read the Intercytex press release here:

http://www.intercytex.com/icx/...ses/2010/2010-03-18/

One thing I'm very curious about, is just what the hell is going on with Trichoscience, they seemed pretty legitimate and promising, but the website has been blank for a decent amount of time now. I'm curious to know if their procedure failed, if they got bought out, if they went bankrupt, or if the site really is "under construction" for some sort of much bigger anouncement that's going to take place.

I'm still sick of having to live like this, I'm sick of feeling physically inferior to the opposite sex, and I'm sick of feeling like my youth and some of my ability to captivate people has been robbed from me. I've grown to live with it and just do my best though, but it just sucks having the feeling that no matter what I do I'm gonna be second class.

Sorry if I sounded kinda pissed and whiny, I have a bit of a history of that on this forum hah. It just sucks cause I don't really have much anywhere else to vent other than the internet.

I'm actually only about an NW2 but I'm still pretty young at 22. I can't take propecia cause it gave me side effects that have since gone away, honestly the side effects might have been psychological/psychosomatic but that's still enough reason to keep me off of it.

I sorta wish around the time I took it that I was never informed there was any chance of side effects at all, maybe then I could've avoided freaking myself out with paranoia into actually psychologically giving myself ED.

I still don't really think I'd risk going through that again.

ya I'm young too, dont wanna take propecia and get ED either.....



I think they bought them out to just make sure they don't make the same mistakes..... something like that. I dont see why intercytex would go out of business if they had anything remotely viable already

You can hope all you want for this stuff to work out, but as far as hair cloning is concerned I don't think its coming anytime soon. Quite honestly it's not that important to the world...Baldness isn't a life threatening...so therefore no one is going to throw a lot of money at it..Our best bet is on Histogen really.. and that even wont help nw6-7's...They fall better into the 5 year frame then any of this hair cloning crap... that's why I don't really get to into it..

Matt- as for you thinking that your side effects were just psychological..you're probably dead wrong. I'm sure it was the fin. I've been through it all with this drug and let me tell you, when you have the side effects, there not psychological...Being 22 myself there is no possible way that being worried about having side effects would effect your erections..You mean to tell me that if a really hot chick wanted to do it with you, you wouldn't be able to get it up.. come on... if you had sides they were real.. nothing to do with your head....of course that's how it would have been for me.. if propecia hadn't ruined my life forever..

Finhairloss- if you dont take finasteride.. then why the hell do you have the name finhairloss....?

mischelstraus-- what?

I'm sorry to hear about your sides, me personally I had them but they went away after I quit, though let me tell you it did take a long ass time after I quit, somewhere along the range of MONTHS. Best advice I can give you to help speed up regaining your sexual abilities is physical exercise, mainly the type of stuff that gets your blood flowing and your mood elevated. I'm also from chicago and since springtime is around now I would recommend going out and riding a bike and working up a sweat.. do this every day for a good amount of time and hopefully you can get better.. don't ever think you're fucked for life. Riding a bike is a very stress-relieving and healthy activity, especially if you live inside Chicago proper and not the suburbs, Lincoln Park and Grant Park are great places..

Going back on topic, hair loss is definitely important to the world and to scientists, for the simple fact that whoever solves the problem is going to be set for life as far as money goes.. as well as their great-grandchildren.
