HAIR CLONING TECHNOLOGY

The problem in hair transplantation is the limited number of the hair roots. Throughout the hair cloning this problem is removed. Our institution applied for registration to the Patent Institute of Turkey on 07/07/2010, under the title "Hair transplantation by natural hair cloning method." We are currently on a phase with quite good developments in hair cloning.

Cloning is to create equal organisms genetically. Cloning is not only the creation of a homogenous twin of an embryo or an organism but also duplication of a genuine DNA piece. The sheep Dolly seen on the media largely is an example of cloning.

What is the difference between Cloning and Genetic Engineering?

The genetic engineering is a technology which enables the scientists to take out the gens from one organism and to transfer to another. Contrary to cloning, in genetic engineering, beings or organisms of the beings are not created but only the genetic errors of the present beings are corrected. The gene causing hair loss is found by Dr. Angela Christiona who is executing her studies in University of Columbia. It’s determined that all people having this gene are exposed to hair loss. But this is not the gene causing male type hair loss which we call androgenic alopecia. Dr. Christiano’s laboratory still continues researches about this issue.

What is Hair Duplication?

Transmed published a research about the issue in 2004. According to this, hair roots taking from the donor area are selected according to the number of stem cells they include and transplanted to the hairless area. Since they are not taken out together with the roots, the hair on the donor area continues growing. This means a potentially unlimited donor area. The problem about this technique is that the hair taken out by tweezers contain the stem cells around it. That’s why mostly the hair roots taken out from the donor area would not grow at their new location.

Hair Cloning Model

When it comes to hair follicular, cloning comes to a very complicated deadlock. Hair folliculars are too complicated to be simply duplicated in culture but since they are not a complete organism like Dolly, they can not be cloned. Dr. Reynolds and Dr. Jahoda, studying with Dr. Christiano discovered a way to solve this problem. These researchers in their recent studies, duplicated the cells at the lowest layer of the hair folliculars and triggered hair development by injecting them to a human. Another interesting aspect of the research is this: The donor cells taken from a male outside the donor area, develops in females. The significance of this is that they can be transferred from one human to another irrefutably. Although being taken from a different gender, the results may not give backlash. Also there are some proofs that this donor area affects the appearance of the hair. Thus, the last appearance of the patient would be closer to the real appearance of the hairless patient.

A long way to go...

 Although it is quite encouraging, there is a long way to go in hair cloning. Dr. Christiano frequently mentions this both in her meetings and her articles. After getting over the scientific obstacles, the procedures applied by FDA shows that the hair loss problem will be solved in an unestimated date in the future. We proudly announce that we have real data about cloning through our studies and we work hard about the issue. Despite having no study about the cloning, please ask the centers giving information about hair cloning to give you information about their studies for your own health. Unfortunately people were misled for many years about hair transplantation and had to live with horrible appearances. Please take our remarks into account regarding this issue.
