Both the current method and the method of Dieckmann et al. [21] comprised an active outgrowth of hair follicle outer root sheath. The percentage of active follicles cultivated according to the current method was higher than that of follicles cultivated according to the Dieckmann method, as measured at day 7, 14, 21 and 28. At day 7, the difference in percentage of active follicles between the two methods was statistically significant (p=0.038*), whereas on day 14, 21 and 28, the trend persisted on a non-significant level (p>0.05).
