Hair Cell Jab
Hair cell jab could restore lost hearing, reports the Daily Mail.
Dr Robert Langer of MIT, explains how this breakthrough successfully regrew crucial inner ear hair cells in the laboratory. A drug combination helped create 60 times the number of hair cells than previously achieved. Although the hair cells are not the same as scalp hair cells, there will be biological similarities which could lead on to the “Holy Grail” of hair multiplication or even cloning.
