Hi Dr Rassman, I wondered how your trials using ACell and autocloning are? How many patients have you enrolled? How large are the session sizes? Are you transplanting 100-200 hairs or more? Also do these plucked hairs treated with ACell behave as normal transplanted hairs i.e. they shed and begin growing after 3 months? Thanks.
The ACell study that we conducted at NHI some years ago consisted of about 30 volunteers. These patients received approximately 100 plucked hairs. Since the study started we never saw any growth so we stopped doing this experimental treatment.
