Hi Dr. Rassman,
I was searching the web on the current state of hair cloning and came across an article from WebMD. From the article, Dr. Washenik talks about how hair cloning will be ready in 3 or 4 years. What’s your take on that? Thanks
Dr. Washenik is a reliable source. Like me, he is overly optimistic on some things, but I believe that his timeline have not panned out in the past, so I would expect the same for the future. I do believe that hair cloning will come, but because of legislative challenges, I would doubt that we would be allowed to offer it without FDA and government policy changes, which will take years. The priority of organ cloning must go to the people who are at risk to life (liver, heart, and brain problems) well before the government will allow it for its cosmetic value (in my opinion, of course).
