Method of large-scale proliferation of follicular stem cells

This patent pertains to the method of proliferating follicular stem cells at a high yield. To be more specific, it relates to the method of acquiring follicular stem cells in a large volume, using specific culture medium to which Rho-associated protein kinase (ROCK) inhibitor is added at a designated concentration level, and the culture medium used in this method.

The culture medium for follicular stem cells concerned can lead to the proliferation of follicular stem cells, separated from scalp tissue, in an adequate amount for clinical application so that the said follicular stem cells can be used as a cellular therapeutic agent for hair growth to treat alopecia (hair loss) and atrichia.
