Dr Farjo in BBC World News TV Interview
16th August 2012
Dr Bessam Farjo was interviewed by Nick Gowing on ‘The Hub’ program on the BBC World News channel on March 22, 2012.
This was on the back of the latest research unveiled from University of Pennsylvania showing the discovery of PGD2. This is a prostaglandin type molecule that inhibited hair growth in mice. Researchers said they hoped the development or discovery of a compound that suppressed PGD2 would lead to a potential treatment for hair loss. See our hair transplant blog about this.
Our own work with University of Bradford on prostaglandin hair stimulating research is awaiting publication in a peer reviewed journal. This is the same medication that stimulates eyelash hair growth. Watch this space!
In the background behind Dr Farjo is Salford Quays, the beautiful setting for Media City and the new home of the BBC. In fact, HM The Queen and HRH Prince Philip officially opened the site the day after this interview!
