A human folliculoid microsphere assay for exploring epithelial- mesenchymal interactions in the human hair follicle.

Abstract

The search for more effective drugs for the management of common hair growth disorders remains a top priority, both for clinical dermatology and industry. In this pilot study, we report a pragmatic organotypic assay for basic and applied hair research. The patented technique produces microdroplets, which generate human folliculoid microspheres (HFMs… (More)
