Spencer Forrest Inc has entered clinical trials with its X5 Hair Laser, which the firm claims is the "most powerful laser therapy device on the market."

The X5 features 15 lasers that interact with the scalp. The trials will determine the efficacy of the X5 in stimulating the regrowth of hair in men. If proven effective, the X5 will become only the fourth product ever to gain recognition by the FDA for treating male pattern baldness.

The multicentered, randomized placebo-controlled clinical trials are taking place at three US-based sites, including one major university. The trials will last for 6 months and will include a significant number of male subjects. A female study is also in the works and will begin pending the outcome of the male trials.
