(CNN) – There is new hope for people who suffer from hair loss. A new study indicates that hair can be restored using a person’s own cells.
Unlike traditional hair transplant techniques, this method could potentially grow new hair follicles in hair-loss patients.
Early research has been done using human hair on mice. Clinical trials on humans could begin in three to five years.
The study appears in the Journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
