He was one of the first physicians in the US to really investigate the therapy, and my guess is that if there is any sort of efficacy to ACell with PRP injections, he would know about it.

Glad I could help!

My 2 cents,

The claim "300 grafts to 3k" is quite big and risky. Honestly, ı dont think he is trying to fool anyone or something like that but if us, ht researchers hear something like that, we know that this is the weakest point of ht industry ( limited donor zone) and this becomes not just some important issue, it becomes the most important issue.

I really dont know the doc, haven t seen any of his results. But i should aggree with taking the plunge , if that would be real , it would definately be the mainstream.

So I really hope he achieves his claims because that would be beating the achilles heel of the whole ht industry. But for me it s simple ; " no pictures or it didnt happen"

well, I went to Dr Nigam's website and it's there..he claims he can turn 500 hairs into 5000 .. I got an email from them saying that I need to stay in India for 20 days minimum in order to have the procedure done.
They're confident.
I just wish that this 'technology' can be shared with some other doctors around the globe.

Sapo,

I'd be very careful about claims anyone makes without sufficient evidence. I've been in touch with Dr. Nigam for months and while his hair stem cell transplant sounds great in theory, all the photos he sent me were either only immediately after the procedure showing no growth or combined with FUE hair transplant surgery showing growth which appears to be from the FUE procedure rather than hair multiplication.

Creating 5000 hairs from 500 is certainly impressive sounding. But will they actually grow? So far, I haven't seen any impressive hair stem cell transplant results as a stand alone treatment from any clinic.

I'm not trying to discourage you from researching and learning more. I just think that without more study and proof that the procedure actually works consistently, it could end up being a big waste of time and money.

Best wishes,

Bill

I'd be very interested to get more information about the actual cloning process. That, or some photographs documenting an entire multiplication journey (i.e. a picture of the 500 grafts in the medium on day one, 1,000 on day 10, etc, etc).
