The IID Meeting, held once every five years, is organized by three societies: the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR), the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) and the Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology JSID, in coordination with the local organizing committee in Edinburgh. IID2013's format is structured to allow for not only exciting science presentations but also for collegiality and quality social interaction.

Satellite meetings will precede the official conference opening, from noon on Tuesday, 7 May until 5pm on 8 May, after which the conference will run through Saturday, 11 May. Concurrent sessions will offer attendees a broad choice of topics interspersed with lectures by a sterling lineup of the world's top dermatology scientists and clinicians.

About Biologix Hair Inc. and Biologix Hair Science Ltd.
Biologix Hair Inc. (Biologix Hair), together with its wholly owned biotechnology subsidiary, Biologix Hair Science Ltd. (BHS), is focused on realizing the full market potential for its patent-pending hair loss formula - Biologix Revive - and its demonstrated ability to prevent and reverse the effects of alopecia, which plagues hundreds of millions worldwide.
Between mid-2004 and mid-2012, more than 30,000 pre-clinical-trial treatments of Biologix Revive were administered to 5,000-plus patients in South America suffering with varying degrees of alopecia, as well as people seeking preventive treatment. The participating treatment clinicians subjectively observed and reported that virtually 100% of preventive care clients continued to retain their healthy hair and an estimated 80-85% of the males and 90-plus% of the females treated for hair regeneration experienced significant regrowth of their own natural hair. And among alopecia areata patients, virtually total hair regrowth was observed in 100% of the cases. To date, no negative side effects have been reported.
BHS is currently focused on obtaining FDA approval for its breakthrough hair loss prevention and regeneration therapy and has initiated a research and development program with one of the world's leading medical research universities, the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT). The R&D program, expected to take approximately twelve months to complete, is an important final step before formal clinical trials and the FDA approval process begins.
Additionally, on May 11, 2012, Venable LLC, the Washington-based law firm overseeing the worldwide IP and regulatory approval processes on behalf of BHS, filed a Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) application on behalf of BHS for Biologix Revive in Geneva, Switzerland. The PCT is an international treaty, administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), to which 144 countries have as of now contracted, including Canada and the United States.
Biologix management is determined to be in a ready position to capitalize on the high-margin sales potential of the Biologix Hair Therapy System, if and when FDA and other major market approvals are forthcoming.
As BHS advances the regulatory approval process, Biologix Hair, together with wholly owned subsidiary companies operated by BHS, are rapidly developing a global distribution network of licensed clinicians and medical practitioners seeking to become Certified Biologix Hair Therapists and secure exclusive territorial purchasing and treatment rights for the Biologix Hair Therapy System.
Biologix Hair has decided not to risk creating any potential regulatory conflicts by offering treatment outside the United States and other major high-product-margin markets until FDA approval has been granted. Therefore, the Biologix Hair Therapy System is not yet available other than to the 5,000+ patients who participated in the pre-clinical-trials conducted in South America.
