Minoxidil Promotes Hair Growth through Stimulation of Growth Factor Release from Adipose-Derived Stem Cells

MeAdipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) have stimulatory effects on dermal papilla (DP) cells to promote hair-growth. For example, ASCs secrete multiple growth factors, such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factors (bFGF), which can increase the proliferation of DP cells.
