The hair loss world has been buzzing ever since the news broke that a team of UCLA scientists accidently reversed baldness in mice while conducting studies on their digestive function.
While many people are hopeful that this might help lead to more effective hair loss treatments for men and women, there are several critics that are doubtful that this finding will result in anything favorable for the hair loss community.
Spencer Kobren took the opportunity to interview the senior investigator of this study, Yvette Taché, Ph.D. In the interview Dr. Taché describes how her research team made this hair loss reversing discovery, and she also talks about how this may help people dealing with all forms of alopecia.
Only time will tell if this discovery turns out to be helpful in finding effective treatments or even a cure for common male and female pattern hair loss.

Spencer Kobren Interviews Dr. Gary Hitzig – The Pioneer In Using ACell MatriStem For Hair Restoration
November 6, 2010
Hopes are high for the use of ACell’s MatriStem in the world of hair restoration, but hair loss sufferers need to understand that effective results are both user and protocol dependant. Only time will tell which physicians are utilizing these experimental techniques effectively, and as many of you know, recent history has shown that when used incorrectly this extracellular matrix is completely useless.
There are specific methods of application and maintenance that must be adhered to when utilizing ACell MatriStem in all of its applications, and hair restoration is no different.
It’s important for the hair loss community to be fully informed and to have an accurate history of today’s groundbreaking developments. We also think it’s important to pay homage to those in the field who are leading the way with these cutting edge developments.
There is no doubt that the original pioneer for the use of ACell MatriStem in hair restoration is New York hair transplant surgeon Gary Hitzig, M.D., who has been experimenting with the product in his practice for the past couple of years.
On November 4, 2010 Spencer Kobren had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Hitzig about his groundbreaking experiments and about the true history of the use of ACell MatriStem in the fight against hair loss.

Spencer Kobren speaks with IAHRS accepted member and current ISHRS President, Jerry Cooley M.D. about ACell MatriStem, a product that some are saying is the most groundbreaking development in the fight against hair loss since the FDA approval of Propecia.
Listen To Part 1 of The Exclusive Interview
Jerry Cooley, MD: I started working with this wound healing product about a year and half ago, and initially got some promising results. It’s taken me definitely some time to understand it and understand what worked well and what didn’t, as well as just to see long term results. One of the things I’ve been doing in the last few months is just making a real concerted effort to bring people back in, which is not really that easy, but just to really look very closely at my results and I’ve just gotten that much more excited about it.

No matter how well a person responds to Propecia, there are some men who seem to eventually see the hair raising effects of the drug wane over time. Does Propecia lose its effectiveness? If so, what can be done stop the further progression of hair loss?

Fear mongering anti-Propecia videos and websites are popping up all over the internet making the decision to effectively treat hair loss even more confusing. Should consumers be legitimately concerned by claims of permanent long term adverse side effects from the drug, or are these videos and websites simply agenda driven anti-Propecia propaganda?
The bottom line: Out of more than 30,000 patients who were prescribed Propecia, not a single one has ever complained of long-term irreversible side effects of any kind.

Scientists from from Colombia, Rockefeller and Stanford Universities, believe they have discovered a gene that significantly impacts hair growth as well as hair follicle miniaturization; the phenomenon that is the cornerstone of male and female pattern baldness.
The gene identified is named APCDD1 (adenomatosis polyposis down-regulated 1), and was found in patients suffering with hereditary hypotrichosis simplex, a condition that usually presents itself in childhood. Hereditary hypotrichosis simplex is a rare autosomal dominant form of hair loss characterized by hair miniaturization, a process in which the hair follicle actually shrinks and normal thick terminal hair is gradually replaced with fine, velus hair.
