This is a safe method, as far as dermarolling/dermastamping will not destroy
existing hair.

There is a patent/rights time limit in the United States, and they are coming on an
anniversary. For drug/exclusive rights, there is a maximum time limit of twenty years
on medications (to make them affordable to the public, i.e. hepatitis 'C cur).

https://xconomy.com/boston/2011/03/30/f ... invention/


It seems to be too good to be true, probably because it is. They are comparing their
device to other standard forms of dermarolling (recently), such as dermarolling and dermastamping.


It's true that they could have a medical patent on it, without it having been scientifically proven, in the
United States. That probably would not last forever, as drug patents typically last between seven and
twenty years.

Eventually I think their patent will run out. I just don't believe that it is that easy to make new hair follicles
by injuring existing ones.

Histogen has gotten a lot further in human trials, although the average hair regrowth was only ten percent.

This bodes well for the pivotal trial. If the results of the 2b trial are positive, then we can move into phase 3. Those results should be positive as well. I’m just worried that the post pivotal trial won’t show positive enough results for them to move to the pre post-pivotal trial. Because in that case, the results from the 3c trial might not be significant enough to warrant an A-B trial that will take us to the post pivotal B trial. But on the other hand, the fact that the trial has progressed to the 2nd half of sequestration is a good sign. Do we know if they will move right into Phase C after the pivotal post B - trial? Hopefully there will be a press release on this soon.

But yeah, these are exiting times!

The thing I'm most amped about is that for the pivotal, they are looking for NW3s and 4s.

To me, this suggests that the main focus of the treatment is receding hairlines and not crown baldness; something we all know that conventional treatments are basically useless for treating.

This could be serious for the transplant business if this grows enough hair and specifically where the hair line should be. If I was a transplant surgeon right now, I'd be keeping a real close eye on this trial and thinking about getting a license to use Rain as well.

One of the “advisors” for Follica is currently taking questions on another hair loss website, ostensibly under the guise of educating the public. Many of the posters are figuring out that he is simply hawking some tangential product that he’s also connected to. Every “answer” he provides includes a reference to this other product. And again, this is one of the named, official “advisors.” Pretty much indicates what we can expect out of ~Follica.~

If your hair loss bothers you, try to keep as much of it as you can and then pursue transplants. That’s it.

So edgy. How are you going to rescue The West when you spend all of your time aborting your children, checking your hair line in the mirror, shitposting on hair loss forums, and researching your book reports? How about yet another thread on plastic surgery, or how various celebrities are aging? Lol yeah, I’m the faggot. Gooks and faggots and online forums, rotting away in the Canadian prairie, you are the envy of all WASPs everywhere.

Yeah, you put literally dicks in your mouth...

Possibly a black, Jewish or other "diverse" faggot too, by the sound of it.

Lol trying to play this card when you spend all your time bitching hair loss forums about how you're bald.

Then specifically entering threads about new technology and being a crybaby edgelord about how it's not going to work out.

This is like going on a science forum and bitching about how they're all idiots and god created everything, or vice versa.

You have to be mentally ill to make that your hobby, but here you are doing just that. I'd use the phrase "Mentally-ill homosexual", but it is redundant.
