• New Hope For Hair Loss?

    Last week, Dr. Gail Naughton, CEO of Histrogen, Inc. a regenerative medicine company that develops solutions based on the products of  newborn fibroblasts grown under embryonic conditions, addressed attendees at the 4th Annual Stem Cell Summit in New York. Dr. Naughton presented preliminary mid-trial results from Histrogen’s first human clinical evaluation of  it’s promising breakthrough hair loss product ReGenica™

    Histrogen’s clinical trial was primarily designed to assess the safety of its product over a five-month period by using a placebo-controlled, randomized study.  Its second objective was to examine ReGenica’s efficiency.

    At the 12-week scheduled evaluation point, the company was pleased to announce that they not only found no adverse reactions of ReGenica but also that they could honestly say that they were able to see more hair, thicker hair shafts, and what appeared to be the growth of completely new hair follicles on a siggnificant percentage of  the test subjects who were treated with ReGenica.

    ReGenica is a liquid formula that is the first naturally stabilized and bioactive formulation of wnt proteins and natural cofactors, which are thought to act in the formation of new hair follicles. The trial is currently ongoing, and Histogen expects to release full results from this first clinical study in the first half of 2009.

  • Bad Economy Equals Strong Growth For Hair loss Biz

    A South Florida non-surgical hair replacement salon is reporting a record number of calls from South Floridians heading back into the job market and needing a boost of self-esteem. It’s said that consumer spending is at an all time low, and according to The National Association of Insurance Commissioners many Americans are cutting back on everything including medical care, but The Business of Hair keeps growing stronger, giving a whole new meaning to “if you look good, you feel good.”

    Jorge Estevez reports for local CBS News4 on this growing trend:


  • The Business of Hair

    According to the most recent government statistics, U.S. employers cut 2.6 million jobs in 2008, and more than 11 million of our nation’s citizens are currently out of work. If this isn’t scary enough, the pink slips stacked even higher and faster in the month of December with 632,000 Americans losing their jobs.

    Over the past year and a half, we’ve watched our country battle the collapse of our housing market and have witnessed a lending lockup that has forced America to change the way it does business.

    The U.S. economy may be headed for it’s deepest, darkest, and longest recession since World War ll, and as America’s fear mounts, so does the toll this all takes on consumer confidence and spending. With a 7.2% unemployment rate, which is said to be heading to 10% by the year’s end, Americans are tightening their collective belts in an effort to make ends meet. All the while we are a country at war.

    It doesn’t sound good does it? How is the small business owner, or the working man going survive this devastating economic downturn? How are we going to pay our mortgages, our car notes, and feed our families? Well if you’re asking me, my answer is this, find a way to get into the business of hair. Read more ›
