Hair loss effects approximately 50 million men and women in the United States alone. Although it is non life threatening condition, most people are concerned about their hair loss and seek professional help and advise. In recent years different hair restoration solutions have hit the market. These solutions include hair restoration through hair transplant and medical hair treatment options. Hair transplant has gained increased popularity, but the limitation of the donor hair has still been one of the draw backs to hair loss surgery. In order to resolve these issues many studies are being done to regenerate hair through other means and techniques.
Many scientist have worked on the resolution of hair loss using hair regeneration . Hair regenerative medicine has emerged as a new therapy, this involves regenerating hair follicles, the tiny organs that grow and sustain hair. This has been experimented in the laboratory on a small scale and the main draw back has been the preparation of hair follicle germs, the reproductive source of hair follicles, on a larger scale.
The research group further evaluated the feasibility of this method by transferring the prepared hair follicles from a fabricated approximately 300-microwell array, called "HFG chip," to generate hair follicles and hairs on the mouse body. The group confirmed black hair generation at both the back and scalp transplantation sites. The regenerated hair exhibited the typical hair cycle of murine hair. These methods are still at the initial experimental stages but look promising. These experiments can lead to future hair studies that can help with cloning techniques and future of harvesting new hair from a few follicles.
