Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
Aderans Research reached a major milestone in its hair restoration studies recently when the company enrolled its 300th subject in Phase 2 of its clinical trial. With a goal of at least 350 subjects, Aderans is well on its way to expanding industry knowledge about cell-based engineering solutions for pattern hair loss.
“We will continue to evaluate various combinations of the Ji Gami™ cell family in clinical treatment regimens,” said Chief Executive Officer Ken Washenik, M.D., Ph.D.
“The results are very encouraging thus far, and we’re on course to finish Phase 2 next year,” added Vern Liebmann, Chief Operating Officer.
Launched in November 2008, Phase 2 is being conducted across the United States and is open to select individuals who suffer from androgenetic alopecia. Aderans continues to recruit subjects; visit http://www.aderansresearch.com/ari_clinicupdates.html for current locations.
In another landmark, Aderans recently patented (U.S. # 7,985,537) and trademarked its proprietary laboratory test, Aderans HPA™, developed to discern and assess cell formulations in terms of their hair-forming ability. “This unique test can effectively detect cells that produce hair follicles,” said Kurt Stenn, MD, Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer. “It is a standard in the industry.”
It is ARI’s hope that its state-of-the-art cell engineering solutions will both positively impact those in the study and set an example for the industry as a whole. For more information about Aderans Research, visit http://www.aderansresearch.com.
