From just one of Histogen’s applied sciences comes applications, products and opportunities that include revolutionary hair regrowth properties of Hair Stimulating Complex (HSC) for individuals suffering from thinning hair and baldness.
How does Histogen’s HSC work? Human WNT proteins are shown to encourage activity from the existing hair follicles along with initializing epidermal stem cells to form NEW hair follicles. Histogen’s scientific process imitates an embryonic environment that includes low gravity and low oxygen. The newly generated cells produce stem cell markers that organically produce growth qualities and important proteins that are key factors in accelerated, developing tissue. Histogen extracts two products from this process: a soluble protein complex and an insoluble human extracellular matrix (hECM). Both of these products can be used by the life science industry in a variety of applications.
Within Histogen’s proprietary bioreactors are easily grown newborn fibroblasts that are threaded onto a beadlike strand, and then conditioned with liquid media. Within a few days, cells have secreted WNT proteins and other various growth factors while producing the thick, embryonic-like ExceltrixTM into the test liquid.
There are no ethical conflicts in Histogen’s processes in comparison to competitor’s products, many of which are based on animal tissues and embryonic stem cells. In fact, all of the derivatives of the Histogen’s fibroblast conditioning process can be used, which creates a wealth of possibilities for future health products.
