Fair enough but I don’t take the FDA all that serious either.

Lack of adequate donor, expense, possibly subpar results, etc.
These are some of the exact reasons I'm stalling on a hair transplant. Also, I would add "focus" to the list. A hair transplant takes a year or two so if I get one now then I'll be focused on that now and then I'll have to focus on hair surgery again in a year or two or three when the new cell-based therapies come to market. And I'm highly confident that will be soon.

That's cool. But the US FDA is considered to be the "Gold Standard'" of the medicine approval process throughout the world. Lots of other countries do not even have approval processes of their own. Those countries just go along with whatever the US FDA determines. It's the most respected and credible medical approval process in the world.

Over on HairLossTalk they publish articles written by experts, that’s usually what I base my decisions and opinions on. They don’t just let any Joe Schmoe write for them either, it’s the Real McCoy.

But anyway in all seriousness I would take Afro’s advice and look at transplants now. Why waste three or four years of your life waiting? And for something that may not actually get here? I feel like because I have DPA I can’t make a determination on what my actual pattern is. Otherwise I would get a transplant(s) for sure. I may still do it but I have to research more.

For the right people, Afro's advice is the right thing to do. But given the thinning in my donor area I'm not sure I'm one of the right people. I need some time with this.

Recently I overheard someone talking about a transplant they had with stem cell replacement. It appears something is in the United States, unless the person was talking about PRP spent around 10,000 dollars for a transplant, which is average cost for one in the United States. Usually I can tell when someone has had a transplant, this person didn't seem to have one.
Think happy thoughts.

Yet another cell-based treatment for hair loss...

This is another cell-based hair loss treatment in Asia. I now count 5 cell based hair loss cures entering clinical trials or almost entering clinical trials.

Oh boy another "HAIR-RAISING™" study!

If you're lucky, and they see this one through, it might come out when you're 75 - 80. All those 19-year-olds will be just lining up to jump on that limp old-man dick when your hair is back!

Study is kinda just more of the same, but at this point I just don't care. Tsuji, Follica and Shiseido are going to be the only relevant things in my lifetime. Well, Tsuji might be more relevant when I'm fifty, but still.

I was being facetious. (That means sarcastic, ironic, etc.)

Follica was touting their “relevance” back in 2006 when they were warning people not to use cheese graters on their scalps and leave it to the professionals who’d be around shortly to treat us. That was thirteen years ago...

And even more recently we’ve been subjected to the ceaseless cheerleading for them on the forums for what, three, four, years now? There is no set release date (or anything approaching one) for Follica. And yet we hear about it as nauseam like it’s some kind of sure thing. At a certain point it just becomes unseemly.

Maybe we should start doing studies to find out what doesn't regrow hair in mice? It will probably work on humans then

This research has been done at the University of PA Health Care, which is one of the top colleges in the United States.

People shouldn't be making jokes about it. That is the same college that is behind the
Follica, which is international.

This might be a flop, but might not be. Who knows.
Think happy thoughts.

The website Follicle Thought has a nice summary on the current state of hair loss research:

“Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong." - 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 :christian-cross:
