Hair Follicle Plasticity with Complemented Immune-modulation Following Follicular Unit Extraction

A practical study by Dr. Azar Reza, Dr. Thomas A.H. and Dr. Lindner Gerd titled "Hair Follicle Plasticity with Complemented Immune-modulation Following Follicular Unit Extraction"
In two case studies, the researchers investigated the changes in hair follicle morphology and the immune status of scalp and body hair follicles from different origins transplanted to the eyebrows and the frontal scalp using follicular unit extraction.
Quantitative histomorphometry and immunohistochemistry revealed a transformation in hair follicle length and dermal papilla size of the scalp, chest and beard hair follicles, which had been re-extracted after a 6-month period post-transplantation.
