Hi doctor,
Great site. My question is about ACell and all the other in development treatments like it. Will this in theory work for those who have dupa or fpb? I mean I understand the are years away and a big ? If they will even work. But if they do will the help those individuals as well. Eventhough there us miniaturization in the donor, or is there no hope for us?

Please answer… Thanks again.

Clearly, ACell will not impact DUPA (diffuse unpatterned alopecia) or female pattern hair loss unless it was used in conjunction with an auto-cloning procedure. We need to take one step at a time. We still need to see how well ACell works when used in an auto-cloning fashion. We do not know if you pluck a hair from the permanent zone that is not miniaturized in a person with DUPA or female balding, if that hair will grow at all. How it would be compared with a plucked hair in a non-DUPA patient is yet unknown.
