FOR Regrowing Hair
RCH-01 is an autologous cell therapy utilizing dermal sheath cup (DSC) cells isolated from the hair follicle to treat androgenetic alopecia.
Though several cell types are involved, dermal sheath cup cells, located at base of the hair follicle, regulate the growth of hair fibres in the follicle. For those people suffering from androgenetic alopecia, the DHT hormone attacks these cells and as they disappear so does the hair fibre. At the back of the head, however, these cells are immune to the condition.
RCH-01 is made up primarily of dermal sheath cup cells which are immune to androgenetic alopecia. These cells are isolated from a small tissue sample taken from the back of the patient's scalp and used to grow millions more of these cells which are then reintroduced into balding areas on the subject's scalp.
