I enjoy reading your blog and it gives me some comfort seeing other people out there with the same issues as me. I wanted to ask your opinion about this product which I only just heard about called AutoloGel by a company called Cytomedix. They released a share holder update yesterday as below: Cytomedix CEO Issues Shareholder Update.
Its been FDA approved, and they believe it can be used for hair growth and are actively seeking partners and strategic allies for hair growth and hair transplants according to the release. For your reference, this is the patent, dated back to 19 would imagine based on a 15 year time frame that they are probably fairly convinced about their product: USPTO — Patent #5,178,883
What is your opinion on this? And would you be interested in implementing it in practice at some point in future?
I have not been able to find any clinical studies involving AutoloGel and hair regrowth. According to the shareholder update letter (linked above), is is suggested that this gel could be used in such applications as hair growth and hair transplantation.
AutoloGel has been studied extensively for the treatment of non-healing ulcers and has showed positive results — and they received FDA marketing clearance for use on these types of wounds (not for regrowing hair). Until we see a well done clinical study to support that AutoloGel will help with hair regrowth, I think it is far too premature to assume that we could use in practice one day.
