Say goodbye to hair loss forever , researchers develop new method
Hair regenerative medicine has emerged as a new therapy to combat the problem. The therapy involves regenerating hair follicles, the tiny organs that grow and sustain hair.
One of the more challenging obstacles to hair regenerative medicine has been the preparation of hair follicle germs, the reproductive source of hair follicles, on a large scale.
"The key for the mass production of HFGs was a choice of substrate materials for culture vessel," said Fukuda, corresponding author of the study published in the journal Biomaterials.
"We used oxygen-permeable dimethylpolysiloxane (PDMS) at the bottom of culture vessel, and it worked very well," Fukuda said.
