Scientific developments leading to
Mane Biotech’s hair loss solution

The exciting invention by Dr Carlos Chacón of a method that allows for studies on hair follicle stem cell fate leads to a deepening understanding of stem cells and their regenerative abilities.

17 January 2017

Dr Carlos Chacón & colleagues at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, file a patent on a Hair Follicle Stem Cell (HFSC) culture system that furthers the field of regenerative science.

“The model implemented has the potential to become a valuable platform to discover novel mechanisms controlling HFSC functions and potentially other epithelial SCs and can in addition be utilized for drug screening.”

“Growing hair follicle stem cells with our method is likely to have important implications in regenerative medicine. Modern medicine is already able to grow and transplant skin, but this is hairless. Maybe we could help bald men to regrow hair"says Chacón.

A deepening understanding of the use of this new method of study.

An international team of researchers from the Universities of Cologne and Helsinki and the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing have discovered that the ability of stem cells to proliferate and renew organs is regulated by the stiffness of the surrounding tissue. This finding may have implications for improving the regeneration of aged tissue.
