Follicum Results Vs. Minoxidil – Exclusive
Follicle Thought is proud to present this exclusive preclinical research data courtesy of Dr. Jan Alenfall of Follicum. Jan has provided me with a personal write-up on Follicum’s lead candidate drug, FOL-S-005, as well as two research data graphs. I have added the write-up to the original Follicum post.
Below are two graphs demonstrating the efficacy of Follicum’s compounds. Both graphs display results that were obtained from mice. The first graph depicts the results of 6 of Follicum’s potential compounds. The second graph shows the results of minoxidil over a 30 day period. Here’s a quote from Dr. Alenfall about these graphs: “All these results were generated by the contract research laboratory that compared the effectiveness of our compounds compared with minoxidil (the active ingredient in Rogaine®), however the minoxidil study was carried out separately by the laboratory using exactly the same experimental conditions.” Jan also told me that Follicum only intends to move forward with the compounds that show the most promise. I’d say there’s a few here. One thing that’s important to pay attention to is the number of days that it took for these compounds to achieve their results.
