Stem Cell Research Now Regrowing Hair!

A clinic in Florida is doing an experimental stem cell research study to treat baldness with Adult Stem Cells from the patient’s own blood.

John Satino, the clinical director of the Hair & Scalp Laser Clinic in Florida is now testing a method of using stem cell therapy and treatment to stimulate hair growth in people who are suffering from premature baldness.

Process of Stem Cells for Baldness

  1. Blood is drawn from the patient
  2. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Containing Stem Cells and Growth Factors are separated from the blood
  3. The stem cells are then injected into the affected (Balding) areas
  4. A Laser is also used to agitate the skin so the stem cells can migrate into the hair follicles
The stem cell article here features a Florida resident named Russell Gibson. Russell is 30 years old. Here is more:

Gibson has alopecia areata which is an auto-immune disease where white blood cells attack the hair follicle which stops hair growth on the scalp and on the body. Gibson’s eyebrows and lashes have fallen out. There is no cure.

The hair clinic is treating Gibson and 5 others for free as part of the stem cell research study. The results of the research study are expected to be published.
 
The results of the study should be interesting. When I was with Theravitae, I saw the heart disease patients treated with Vescell and one of the positive side effects in addition to the benefits to the heart was that some of the patients reported that their hair was growing back- so this idea seems to be a good one. I’d like to see how Russell is doing in a few months as from the story, it seems he was just treated with his own Adult Stem Cells.
