Cellular therapy with human autologous adipose-derived adult cells of stromal vascular fraction for alopecia areata

Most common forms of hair loss (alopecia) are caused by aberrant hair follicle cycling and changes in hair follicle morphology. However, current treatments for alopecia do not specifically target these processes. Adipose-derived stromal vascular cells (ADSVCs) that can be harvested from fat cells are one of the latest breakthroughs in the aesthetic field.

A Spilt Head Study of Efficacy of Placebo versus Plateletrich Plasma Injections in the Treatment of Androgenic Alopecia

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous concentration of human platelets contained in a small volume of plasma with haemostatic and tissue repairing effects. Being enriched by various growth factors, PRP has become the focus of attention in numerous fields of medicine. Androgenic alopecia (AGA) is a common chronic hair loss disorder, characterised by progressive hair [...]

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.
