Id like to get a transplant by your clinic soon, but do not have enough donor to produce the illusion of full coverage… Can you tell me if cell therapy will be available within a few years so i dont have to worry about donor depletion? i understand it will be in phase 2 trials at the middle or end of this year through ADERANS…. I want to get a transplant now, but will only do it if it this new donor supply or cell therapy will be out… can you give me some info?
Cell therapy is not going to be on the market for a few years at the least and there is still no guarantee that it will work yet. Hair transplantation for some very bald people is still the best way to go. Sooner or later, alternatives to transplants will be available. Depleting the donor supply is a real concern for some people and that is why you need a good doctor who can design a customized master plan for you to be assured that your ‘worst case’ scenario is covered.
Why do you feel that you do not have enough donor hair? Consider sending me pictures of yourself to evaluate you more fully.
