Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess whether cosmetic investigational product containing NGF-574H is safe and effective in the treatment of androgenic alopecia in asian adults.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Androgenic Alopecia Other: conditioned media of umbilical cord blood-derived stem cells Other: Placebo Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
NGF-574H is a obtained by collection of paracrine factors secreted by human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cell that was exposed in vitro to an artificially designed environment mimicking alopecia state in hair follicles to prime the composition of the paracrine factors optimized for hair growth. This study is to assess and confirm whether NGF-574H is safe and effective in the treatment of androgenic alopecia in asian adults.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: NGF-574H

NGF-574H is hair serum with 5% conditioned media of umbilical cord blood-derived stem cells containing various trophic factors that help alleviate hair loss.

NGF-574H will be directed to use on hair and scalp by subject her/himself at home twice a day (in the morning and evening) for 24 weeks.

Other: conditioned media of umbilical cord blood-derived stem cells
Hair serum with 5% conditioned media of human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells
Other Name: NGF-574H

Placebo Comparator: placebo
Hair serum without conditioned media of umbilical cord blood-derived stem cells will be directed to use on hair and scalp by subject her/himself at home twice a day (in the morning and evening) for 24 weeks.
Other: Placebo
Hair serum without conditioned media of human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in mean total hair density (hair/cm2) [ Time Frame: 0, 6, 12 and 24 weeks ]
    • The hair density by phototrichogram for 24 weeks application, in comparison to initial value (baseline) and/or placebo product.
    • Measurement of hair density by phototrichogram (Canfield): change in mean total hair density (hair/cm^2)
    • Statistical analysis: Time and product effects (p<0.05)

  2. Compare visual assessment before and after cosmetic treatment [ Time Frame: 0, 6, 12 and 24 weeks ]
    Visual Assessment using the clinical picture by an investigator: 7 point score (-3 to 3) Visual assessment by a subject (Self-Assessment): 7 point score (-3 to 3)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in mean Telogen hair density [ Time Frame: 0, 6, 12 and 24 weeks ]
    Measurement of telogen hair density, in comparison to initial value (baseline) and/or placebo product.

  2. Change in mean Anagen hair density [ Time Frame: 0, 6, 12 and 24 weeks ]
    Measurement of anagen hair density, in comparison to initial value (baseline) and/or placebo product.

  3. Change in hair growth speed [ Time Frame: 0, 6, 12 and 24 weeks ]
    Measurement of hair growth speed, in comparison to initial value (baseline) and/or placebo product.

  4. Change in hair diameter [ Time Frame: 0, 6, 12 and 24 weeks ]
    Measurement of hair diameter, in comparison to initial value (baseline) and/or placebo product. Measure hair diameter using electronic outside micrometer.
