The Journal of Transplantation Technologies & Research is a Scholarly Open Access journal that addresses ground breaking original research and state of the art review articles related to all types of organ and tissue transplants.
The field of transplantation is at a cross roads for sure. On one hand are the new and exciting discoveries that are helping promote longer and better graft function and patient survival. On the other hand are the challenges that health-care professionals and more importantly our patients, face. The lack of available organs and the ever increasing wait-times lead to a suboptimal quality of life for many, and for others, this discrepancy has robbed patients of their only chance for survival. The system of health care financing adds an additional layer of complexity and stress in the lives of all those involved in this area.
Journal of Transplantation Technologies & Research welcomes health-care providers, researchers and policy makers alike, and encourages anyone and everyone who is invested in this field of medicine to voice their opinions and also provides a forum for all to be heard. Our ultimate goal, as health care professionals is the same, irrespective of what we specialize in: to advance the field of medicine, to care, to provide comfort, and to educate ('Doctor' comes from the Latin verb 'docere': to teach): ourselves, our patients and our peers. Journal of Transplantation Technologies & Research serves a valuable role in fulfilling these very noble goals.
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure used to treat baldness or hair loss. Typically, tiny patches of scalp are removed from the backand sides of the head and implanted in the bald spots in the front and top of the head. The first hair transplant surgery was performed by Dr. Norman Orentreich in the year of 1952 in New York City. He coined the term “donor dominance” to explain the basic principle of hair transplantation which says that transplanted hair continues to display the same characteristics of the hair from where it was taken. In other words, healthy hair that is harvested from the back or sides of the scalp that is transplanted to the balding area on the top of the head will continue to grow as if it were still in its original location. In recent techniques scientists makes pluripotent stem cells to differentiate into dermal papilla cells, which will induce hair growth.
