Biotechnology to Treat Baldness

Intercytex which is a biotechnology firm is coming up with a robot for treating baldness and has landed up with £1.85m aid from the government. Under a test undertaken the company took hair follicle from the back of the neck, multiplied them and then replanted the cells for the purpose of inducing new growth. The grant would be utilized by the company for the purpose of developing a robotic system in order to grow the cells so that a number of people could benefit from it. This grant could help in the commercializing of hair follicles. The treatment could help in curing both male and female baldness. Hair follicles would be removed under anesthetic and then grown in culture so that they could multiply and be reinjected. It is expected that this funding would help in treatment of people on a large scale.
