Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in hair number [ Time Frame: 24 weeks post-injection ]
  • Change from baseline in hair width [ Time Frame: 24 weeks post-injection ]
  • Time course of any treatment benefit [ Time Frame: 24 week post-injection ]

Enrollment: 34
Study Start Date: June 2012
Primary Completion Date: April 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment Biological: Autologous cultured mixed population of dermal cells
A piece of occipital scalp is taken from the subject. A mixed population of dermal cells from this tissue are expanded in culture. The cells are then harvested. These cells are then injected into the balding area of the scalp of the original subject.

  • Able to provide informed consent after risks and benefits of the study have been explained.
  • Be willing to undergo all study procedures.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with study personnel.
  • Have no clinically significant disease or abnormal laboratory evaluations taken at the screening visit.
  • Agree to abstain from use of any hair growth affecting oral or topical medication including over the counter and herbal medications, minoxidil, finasteride or dutasteride during the course of this study; also agrees to abstain from shaving the head during the course of the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Women who are pregnant or lactating.
  • Known sensitivity to DMEM/F-12 or any component of the study material.
  • Known hypersensitivity to clindamycin hydrochloride, amphotericin B or streptomycin sulfate.
  • Subjects who have used minoxidil or any oral or topical medication including over the counter and herbal medications for the treatment of hair loss within 6 months of study screening, or finasteride or dutasteride within 12 months of study screening.
  • A history of drug or alcohol abuse within 1 year of study enrollment.
  • Participation in any other investigational study within 30 days or six half lives of its biologic activity, whichever is longer, before the scalp excision visit(s), and during the time enrolled in this study.
  • Clinically significant medical or psychiatric illness currently or within 30 days of study screening as determined by the investigator.
  • Clinically significant symptoms of any acute illness within 30 days prior to excision day.
  • Any condition that compromises the ability to understand or comply with study requirements.
  • Clinically significant abnormal laboratory parameters.
  • A positive result at screening for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV 1 or 2), Hepatitis B or C, HTLV I/II.
  • Clinically significant dermatologic condition in donation or study zones.
  • Prior surgery in the donor or study zones.
  • Insufficient hair or scarring in the donor area that might impact cell growth.
  • Any disease or condition (medical or surgical) that, in the opinion of the investigator, might compromise hematologic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal, gastrointestinal, hepatic, or central nervous system function; or any condition that would place the subject at increased risk.
