Well I have searched this part of forum to see if there is any topic devoted to this firm, it seems there is not(if there is I beg the mods to delete this topic and redirect this post there). It seems that we have a new horse in the race of conquering MPB so if you are interested you can read here about their way to solve this problem.

'...Mr. Hall contends a “moderately successful” clinical trial would result in a 10% increase in hair growth in six to 12 months, which would be equivalent to Rogaine, the first topical FDA-approved product to re-grow hair in both men and women. A “very successful” trial, he figures would result in a 10% to 15% increase in hair growth in six to 12 months, which is equivalent to Propecia, the only FDA-approved, once-a-day pill to help reduce dihydrotestosterone, a key cause of hair loss. An “extremely successful” trial would be a 20%-plus increase in hair growth in six to 12 months, he adds.'

There's only 10 men and nine women in the study!

So from reading this, if there is just 2 men and perhaps one woman that show positive results from these trials, that's considered ''extremely successful'?

I didn't want to be blinded by sceince over the figures that's all.

Well they are a young firm but we shall see what will they do in the future. Maybe they do nothing significant but at least they will save someone else?s time not to research that way.

I've read up a little bit about RepliCel in the last few weeks. Exciting to see another "horse in the race." Thanks for keeping us updated Pale_Rider.
