Hello i have been following in the background for a while about methods of treatment of hair loss. A few years ago we had quite a few biotech companies looking at researching hair loss. There was intercytex, aderans, histogen, follica and replicel. Many of these companies no longer exist or else news of hair loss treatments and their pipeline after phase 1 have faded and other products have replaced them. I was basically wondering since i have been away for a year or two from heavy research into this. Has all this research faded now? are there any companies coming in to replace these ones or are we seeing that this sort of application is perhaps more difficult than we expected and as such people have given up on it? Sorry to be fatalistic.
Bosley’s parent company Adarans, stopped funding one of the very promising solutions for hair loss a couple of years ago. A few other companies have dropped their hair research efforts. Intercytex seems to have nothing on their website that indicates activity in the hair arena. It does seem that the failures to achieve good hair loss solutions have thwarted some of the research. I really cannot comment on the biotech companies aside from what you may find on the Internet and speculations. It does seem that the ‘cure’ for hair loss is not as easy as one may have imagined.
