Hair cloning continues to evade medical research by the limitations of the growth of specific cells called dermal papilla cells.When human dermal papilla cells are grown in culture, they lose the ability to grow hair. The New York Times published an article describing the recent experience of researcher Angela Christiano and researchers from Durham University in Britain. They were able … Read More
No, it’s not the mouse version of a Mohawk. These creatures, the subjects of a new study, were implanted with follicles made from human cells, which soon took root and grew normally. Only slightly less creepy than this mouse with human ear cells on its back, the animals would even grow their new hairs back if they were plucked out. … Read More

MatriStem devices are unique from other scaffold technologies in that they fundamentally change healing by triggering abundant new blood vessel formation and recruiting numerous cell types to the site of injury. It appears that these cells, including progenitor cells, have the potential to differentiate into numerous types of … Read More

Much of the early reported variable successes (Greco1) have been attributed to the fact that there are significant vital proteins (Collagen IV etc.) as well as multiple growth factors (ie: … Read More
