Still i am very excited by this news, as first read on Slashdot about this possible scientific breakthrough: Adipocyte Lineage Cells Contribute to the Skin Stem Cell Niche to Drive Hair Cycling.
Sadly i have no idea what that says, but according to slashdot the gist is:
"According to an article published in the journal Cell, molecular signals from fat cell (adipocyte) precursors under the skin are necessary to spur hair growth in mice. Yale researchers report in the paper that these cells produce molecules called PDGF (platelet derived growth factors), which are necessary to produce hair growth. The discovery of the source of signals that trigger hair growth may lead to new treatments for baldness. The trick is in getting adipocyte precursors under the skin to talk to stem cells at the base of the hair follicles."
Which, i think, is a big up for stem cells.
Not sure what to sell here, seems you can't be live mice on amazon so here's a nice wig instead.
