Stem Cells and Baldness
According to a new study by Roland Lauster, a professor at the Berlin Technical University in Berlin, Germany, he’s been able to regrow hair follicles from stem cells. Researchers are alleging that cells may be implanted onto the scalp and dead follicles can be rejuvenated.
Unfortunately for interested parties, you’re going to have to wait. Lauster conducted studies on mice and believes that humans will have this opportunity in maybe five years. He thinks this baldness cure could help as many as 80 percent of the people who suffer from hair loss.
This isn’t the first time these findings have come to light. In an article by Fox News, it states that the University of Pennsylvania found similar findings in 2004 but it didn’t produce a cure for baldness.
