Dear Dr Rassman
Is that possible that the Acell autocloned hair, from plucked hair from DHT resistant donor area, stay DHT-insensible for let’s say 10 years, and after that develop sensitivity to DHT ?
If many people stay bald free even up to 50 years old like the balding genes was inactive for decades… I suppose maybe something like that could happen to autoclone hair, like their balding genes could just wake up after many years, in some few cases.
We do not know the answer to this question. One would expect that the auto-cloned hair would be resistant to DHT and grow on just like the donor hair normally does. Apoptosis (cell death) is programmed in the balding hair follicle, but not in the hairs found in the donor area… but still, no one really knows.
In the case of general cloning, I recall there have been reports that the life span of a cloned animal is shorter than expected. It all has to do with something called telomerase, which may or may not apply to the hair. The short answer is: I simply do not know.
