I’ve seen studies on Fibroblast growth factors stimulating hair growth before, but what is this all about?

link:

Abstract

“Disclosed is a human Fibroblast growth factor-14 polypeptide and DNA(RNA) encoding such polypeptide. Also provided is a procedure for producing such polypeptide by recombinant techniques. Also disclosed are methods for utilizing such polypeptide for promoting wound healing for example as a result of burns and ulcers, to prevent neuronal damage due to associated with stroke and promote neuronal growth, and to prevent skin aging and hair loss, to stimulate angiogenesis, mesodermal induction in early embryos and limb regeneration. Antagonists against such polypeptides and their use as a therapeutic to prevent abnormal cellular proliferation, hyper-vascular diseases and epithelial lens cell proliferation are also disclosed. Diagnostic methods for detecting mutations in the coding sequence and alterations in the concentration of the polypeptides in a sample derived from a host are also disclosed. “

“…The FGF-14 polypeptide may also be employed for preventing hair loss, since FGF family members activate hair-forming cells and promotes melanocyte growth.”

“…The engineered fibroblasts are then injected into the host, either alone or after having been grown to confluence on cytodex 3 microcarrier beads. The fibroblasts now produce the protein product. “

Might be nothing but this seems like it could stimulate/regrow hair, or at least its a step in the right direction. If anyone has knowledge of what this patent is for, shout.

Speaking of fibroblast growth factors, I posted a recent study on here a couple months ago on an FGF-5 inhibitor, which stimulated hair growth. The herb they used in the study was sanguisorba officianalis (great burnet). Should be able to find the post on here using my magnifying glass. I am going to try it as a topical.

Hey Hatchet–

I’m considering ordering this powder to use as a topical as you are doing. Would you be able to provide me any advice on what to mix it with, what quantity to use, etc.? I’m pretty new to the whole “kitchen sink topical” thing. Thanks!

I actually haven’t ordered it yet, but I am going to, probably this week. I am not sure yet how I am going to mix it though, so I am open to ideas….

Cool man, well, I shot Kalyx an e-mail for advice. Hopefully, they’ll have some.

I found another link to purchase it:

If currently use a topical with sophora in DMI (5 %), how would this be in the same topical.

Seems like with DMI you would be able to get adequate absorbtion

hmm I found this study about FGF-5 but it was done on Mice:

Heres a study about FGF-7 being stimulated by Adenosine:

I purchased 16 oz. of Emu Oil from some Emu farm in Kansas, I suppose that could help act as a carrier.
