DR TSUJI FINALLY CURES HAIR LOSS! RELEASE DATE 2020 OR 2021!!
Today, I have some very very exciting news for those of you suffering from hair loss. For those who have been keeping up with the latest research in terms of a hair loss cure, most of you know Japan’s Dr Tsuji and his cure for hair loss through cloning an infinite number of hair from stem cell donor follicles. He is working with Organ Technologies and RIKEN as we speak in Kobe, Japan. The process they are proposing to use is taking a few hair follicle samples from a patient, extracting and isolating mesenchymal stem cells and epithelial stem cells from the hair follicles, and using a method that the lab developed to culture these two cell types to generate many follicles, which will be transplanted into the hair loss area, using methods similar to current hair transplantation methods, and the transplanted follicles should generate hair shafts. The latest update is that Dr Tsuji should be announcing human clinical trials but we have yet to receive any news until today.
I’ve been getting several requests to cover a recent Youtube video that was released by a Japanese hair loss blogger who has been keeping track of Dr Tsuji and his latest work. The video is in Japanese but luckily we were able to loosely translate it. The guy allegedly has recently attended a lecture by Dr Tsuji and it still seems like a cure for hair loss is expected to happen sometime in 2020 or 2021.
It turns out that the cost of this Dr Tsuji hair loss cure is expected to be anywhere from 20-40 million Japanese yen, which is equivalent to nearly $180,000 to $360,000 USD and that they expect the prices to slowly become more affordable over the next 10 years as they increase capacities, have other companies with shared patents and hopefully other biotech companies who are able to compete. This means it will only be available to those with a big fat wallet and the wealthy elite and the average Joe will not be able to afford it right off the bat. I think the huge gap between the price range may be due to how much hair may be required based on each person. I don’t think it’s so much the fact that Dr Tsuji is trying to bank off of his accomplishments on finding a cure, but rather the high cost may be due to all the expenses that would incur from storing and multiplying the stem cells. But man, that is quite a hefty price! That’s like the price of a home in many parts of the US and I really was not expecting something to be so expensive. But there’s no doubt that wealthy people who are suffering from a higher grade of hair loss would consider this, including celebrities and movie stars.
Apparently, Dr Tsuij has already been conducting experiments on human trials in 2019 and that they just have not provided us with any updates to date but we should get results by the end of 2019. Before, I was under the impression that human clinical trials have not begun, but I could be wrong and the fact that they are pushing for a 2020/2021 release date makes me believe human trials have already been started and that we are just waiting on the clinical results.
I also managed to find some answers that I'm sure a lot of my viewers would have regarding Dr Tsuji.
As far as commercializing, it’s bound to happen 2020-2021 as I mentioned earlier. The treatment will be available to the public, meaning it will be accessible to non-Japanese citizens, and prices will take at least 10 years to drop before ordinary (middle class) people are able to afford it. And even if prices drop, I am guessing it would still cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Guys, this may be it. It may be really happening and the cure is finally coming, at least in our lifetime. And this is even better news for those who are suffering from a more advanced form of hair loss, like a NW-6 to a NW-7 where a regular hair transplant won’t do much. But for guys who are a NW 3-4 and responding well to finasteride and minoxidil and other treatments, a simple hair transplant or two would fix the issue and more importantly, give you assurance that over the years as you may continue to bald, there is treatment available that will be able to give you a full head of hair again and will eventually be a price where we will all be able to afford it. Nevertheless, this is exciting news because Dr Tsuji is also highly focused on complex human organs besides hair follicles, so we are just one step closer to being able to clone human functional organs hopefully in the near future.
I did want to note that nothing is official since it has not been released by Dr Tsuji himself nor his affiliated companies, so we obviously want to take this with a grain of salt. But honestly, at this point, I don’t see any good reason why they would want to lie about such a thing and the things stated in the video seem to be on par with everything else regarding Dr Tsuji’s research and plans. So let me know your thoughts, let me know if you would spend $200k just for the sake of hair. If you have any questions, make sure to drop them in the comment section below!
