The secret to fighting baldness may be locked away inside stem cells, according to a new study.
Researchers in South Korea may give hope to millions after using something called adipose-derived stem cell constituent extract topical solution (ADSCS) on a clutch of willing volunteers.
The solution is applied to the scalp and appears to trigger hair growth. The team from Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital in South Korea trialled 38 patients over a 16 week period.
The tests showed that after just eight weeks, tests showed an increase in hair growth. ADSCS are a type of mesenchymal stem cells – they come from bone marrow and are important in repairing skeletal tissue like cartilage and bone. (Text, photo – Metro)
