...and maybe some other autoimmune applications ?

Still a bit early but not surprising because I have come to the conclusion that the once huge variety of applications and acceptance scale for Cytori will be smaller than once thought.

The hair growth thing is really impressive yes.

Than again- hair loss might have totally different causes and therefore require totally different remedies.

On the auto-immune side- the general knowledge that I thought was valid, was that there are no cures for RA and similar type disorders-

just compounds that reduce the severity of the symptoms- Pfizers drug for instance (which the US patients are allowed to swallow, is NOT approved in the EU for good reasons-

Board moderator and Site-owner. I still regret the day I started analysing the prospects of MacroPore (now Cytori) back in 2004- a left-over from the tech-bubble at that time from the century change in my portfolio- and became addicted to Cytori´s fat cell technology. :cry:

Moreover, what is the cost of using this drug for hair growth ? If you have to swallow drug for the rest of your life to keep that hair, I suppose having a Cytori - or actually Bimini - treatment is much cheaper in the long run...

Valid points belgiumineurope....there also side effects to consider and efficacy.

Cost can be mitigated with insurance.
Side effects can be a issue it appears
Efficacy...we just dont know what bimini can do.
