Follicum

Follicum develops drugs that can both stimulate and inhibit hair follicle activity.

Independent in-vitro and in-vivo studies on living human skin tissue show that Follicum’s candidate drug is effective in inhibiting hair growth, while exhibiting no side effects.

In comparable in vivo studies in mice, one of Follicum’s drug candidates stimulated hair growth significantly faster, and produce hair growth over a much larger area than minoxidil (the active ingredient in Rogaine®).
