Here in Austria we have a hair restoration clinic named Moser Clinic. This is a quote from their website:
“Unlike scientists in America Karl Moser and Dr. Krugluger integrated the experience and know-how of organ transplantation into their research. They found out that the time when the hair is removed from the donor area until it gets placed into the recipient area is the most critical and the major reason for reduced hair growth after the transplantation. During this time the FUs need a perfect, humid environment.
While other clinics still use a saline solution for intermediate storage, the Moser Medical Group developed its own solution to stop hair loss after transplantations. After the FUs have been dissected, they are stored in this solution where they are treated against disturbance of growth, until they get implanted. ”
Well they claim they know how to make the hair not fall out after a hair transplant. Could such things be true or is it simply a hoax?
The Moser Clinic is a highly respected organization and the work of Karl Moser and Dr. Krugluger has been presented to the ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery), where I was in the audience. They are credible scientists. Their solution appears to reduce the hair loss shedding immediately after the surgery. I would be interested in trying it, but I am prohibited from using it for many reasons including:
- It is not FDA approved in the United States
- The technique appears to have many nuances and I would want to master them before trying it on people
- I do not perform human experimentation
I spoke to them about the FDA and offered to cooperate with them and help them get it through the FDA process when we met this summer in Sydney, Australia.
