In medicine, the terms ‘cloning’ or ‘stem cells’ are often associated with finding solutions to different types of health problems related to skin, organs, infections, etc. In the last years, the progress in medicine has reached a high level that, nowadays, the potential of cloning and stem cell treatments seems to have no barrier.
The use of these two concepts is mostly being studied in the field of capillary regeneration. A matter that worries both men and women all over the world, being victims of alopecia to which only a few have escaped and which have had obvious consequences on their self-esteem and personal relationships, as is shown in diverse studies made on the influence of baldness in the lives of those who have it, and with the arrival of alopecia during the years of youth, series of affections aggravates, especially, with women, as a consequence of the established social prototypes.
The number of people affected by this disease and the interest in remedying it definitively is very important that more and more researches are trying to reach favorable results. Some of them are related to capillary cloning and to the development of products that include stem cells in order to put an end to baldness and to make the follicles sprout again where they no longer grew.
Most cases of baldness are related to a series of conditions that prevent the hair follicle to grow normally; these follicles are formed by epithelial cells and dermal papillae. When a hair falls down, these cells are spoiled.
The latest research that focuses on studying these cells has tried to produce quantities of epithelial stem cells, convinced that through this production hair can be regenerated.
A recent study about the affectation of alopecia in the capillary cycle revealed that dermal papilla cells, which means, those that regulate the growth cycle, could be altered in order to maintain the follicle in the anagen phase over time, which means, the one in which it grows. The big problem that faces the researchers who are studying the dermal papillae has to do with the difficulty to generate enough, as well as complications such as the difficulty to cultivate follicles.
Scientific studies have shown the effectiveness of stem cells as a hair treatment to combat alopecia, also considered as the biggest advance in the sector.
