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.

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.

On January 6, 2010 The Bald Truth reported on what appears to be an exciting scientific breakthrough in the fight against hair loss, and the response to our interview with IAHRS hair transplant surgeon and researcher, Dr. Jerry Cooley, has been overwhelming. We’ve received correspondence from around the world from desperate hair loss sufferers in search of real hope.
Unfortunately, the original press release that was distributed on January 6th, 2010 by New York hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Gary Hitzig, has left many individuals confused.
Based on this press release many men, women and the parents of children in need believed that their prayers had finally been answered. This clearly isn’t the case, and Dr. Jerry Cooley provided clarification in his interview with The Bald Truth.
Based on direct correspondence from several experts in the field, and on our own assessment of this technology, it is clear that the original press release could be construed as misleading.
Dr. Jerry Cooley has been kind enough to send a statement to The Bald Truth in order to clear up any confusion. It is important to note that Dr. Gary Hitzig’s surgical hair restoration techniques have not been assessed by our organization in many years, and he is currently not recommended by the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons or The American Hair Loss Association. If you believe you meet the criteria to be a candidate for this experimental corrective procedure, we suggest that you contact Dr. Cooley directly for an assessment.
Spencer Kobren comments and reads Dr. Cooley’s statement:

Hair Transplant Docs “Clone” Hair – Is MatriStem® MicroMatrix The Next Great Hair Restoration Breakthrough?
January 6, 2010
Regenerative medicine innovator ACell Inc. might just be responsible for advancing surgical hair restoration to heights once thought to be science fiction.
IAHRS accepted member Jerry Cooley M.D., and New York hair transplant surgeon Gary Hitzig M.D. say that they have become the first medical doctors to successfully “clone” hair using the FDA-cleared wound healing powder MatriStem®. If in fact this proves to be as effective as Cooley and Htizig claim, this regenerative powder originally formulated to help heal diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers and pressure ulcers, will catapult the rapid advancement of permanent hair restoration.
Dr. Cooley was kind enough to grant Spencer Kobren an exclusive interview to discuss his findings:
