A breakthrough in hair loss ‘may’ have been found in the US. Their breakthrough was made when using stem cells to create inner ear tissue. Experts used stem cells from mice to grow skin with hair follicles. It more closely resembled natural hair than any other previous attempts. For the first time, they managed to grow the upper and lower skin layers, the epidermis and dermis, which the follicles on a mouse form in the same way. Karl Koehler Professor at Indiana University suggested that ‘Skin develops as a spherical cyst and then the hair follicles grow outwards in all directions, like dandelion seeds.’ He said the process could also prove useful for testing drugs and reducing the practise of animal testing, as well as making improvements in hair growth.
