Stimulation of hair growth in humans by cell-secreted proteins
Society of Investigative Dermatology Annual Meeting 2012, 8 - 11 May 2012, 519
To evaluate a bioengineered human cell-derived formulation, termed Hair Stimulating Complex (HSC), on the effects of hair growth activity in males and females with androgenetic alopecia.
In three clinical studies HSC treatment resulted in a statistically significant increase across hair growth parameters. The safety and efficacy results seen with HSC represent a novel regenerative medicine approach in hair growth treatment for both men and women.
The 48 week data from the Phase I/II study will be evaluated at the end of 2012, with plans to submit an IND in 2013 for commencement of a Phase IIb/III study in men and women involving increased dosing with HSC.
