Follicum featured in the June issue of The New Yorker: “Is the Age-Old Quest for a Baldness Cure Reaching Its End?”
Amos Barshad writes about baldness and the development of tentative cures and Follicum is among the companies mentioned in the article.
“In Sweden, a company called Follicum is now doing Phase IIA clinical studies and planning to communicate results by the end of the year. The end product will be a cream or a lotion, one that could be applied as few as three times a week. In the first trial, Follicum claims, more than seventy-five per cent of patients experienced hair growth. This is the real dream, the one so artfully captured in the Hims ads: pop a pill, slap on some cream, and get Hair God locks.”
