Countering Baldness to Treat Skin Cancer

In addition to countering baldness, hfSCs may be able to treat injuries and diseases in the skin.

Recent research at the University of Southern California suggests that stem cells can be utilized to counter baldness and receding hairlines.  The study focused on hair follicular stem cells (hfSCs), which, in addition to inducing hair growth, also have the potential to regenerate skin in burn victims and patients with skin cancer. 

Hair follicular stem cells are a type of adult stem cells that specialize in the regeneration of both hair follicles and skin.  By studying the pathways involved in hfSC function, researchers can develop future therapies that not only treat baldness, but a variety of skin injuries and diseases as well. According to Dr. Krzysztof Kobielak, USC Assistant Professor of Pathology and the leader of the research team, “Collectively, these new discoveries advance basic science and, more importantly, might translate into novel therapeutics for various human diseases.”

We believe the best stem cells to use in these emerging regenerative treatments will be the patient’s own [autologous stem cells] as this negates the need to find a suitable donor and eliminates the chances of rejection of the transplanted tissue.
