Sounds like they are giving up on the hair removal "quest". Too bad. If they found something that works, they could become trillionaires. Cancer research is more important than permanent hair removal, as it should be.

I'm not sure that is exactly what they are saying:

"Concluding the sale and/or licensing of its suite of dermatological product candidates, including SLO17 for Actinic
Keratosis and SLO17 for Hair Removal, in order to accelerate Quest's focus on oncology."

This would lead me to believe that these products are still very much viable as they plan to sell OR license the product candidates.

Management Discussion and Analysis (July 31, 2009)

The Company&#8217;s lead product, SL017, is a topical formulation indicated for dermatology applications. The utility of SL017 with Intense Pulsed Light has already been demonstrated for hair removal applications in a Phase I clinical trial. The Company has recently completed the enrollment of 110 patients in a Phase II clinical trial for the same indication. Use of SL017 with a commercially available light delivery system is likely to overcome some of the limitations associated with the light treatment alone.

They have not managed to achieve their aim to develop perfect hair removal method, but maybe they will come with some advantages in this field... As was mentioned in one of the reports, this method could be potentially useful for light color hair removal.

I managed to get in contact with them. They say that focus testing is being done in europe now. So it looks like im out of luck getting in on the trials. To me it doesnt make sense why they would do them way over there and they didn't say why. My only guess is that it's faster to get through testing in europe than it is in canada.

I guess this is it. the hair removal technology can't be found on their page anymore.

http://www.questpharmatech.com/

Photoderma haven't updated their page for ages.
Has anybody made experience with applisonix yet?

I recommend to move back to electrolysis (blend ;-)

Hello! I am a long time viewer, new time Contributor. After badgering him with many unresponded to emails, here is the reply I just received from Mr. Madi R.Madiyalakan,Ph.D, CEO at Quest Pharmatech, about SL017.

Dear Mr. *********,

I am sure I have responded to your e-mail in the past. In any case, we are still developing the hair removal product in collaboration with many of partners; and currently, we have no news to share with outside world. When we make progress, we will definitely issue a news release. Thank you very much for your continued interest in our products.

Sincerely,

Madi

-------------------------------------------------------------
The only thing I could find openly on their website was a brief quote under the Business Development Tab > Licensing and Partners:

Partner for Manufacturing Development: Quest Pharmatech and the Alberta Research Council (ARC) have formed a strategic alliance to develop fermentation based technology to manufacture Hypocrellin B, one of the essential ingredients for SonoLight Technology. The ARC will undertake research to develop a semi-synthetic method for the manufacture of Hypocrellin B. If the project is successful, Quest will receive an exclusive license to the developed technology from the ARC to manufacture and commercialize HB based products including SL017 for dermatology and SL052 for oncology applications.
-------------------------------------------------------------
I'm afraid that's all I could find at the moment. They are very secretive about their work. Hopefully others will be able to discover more info. as time goes on. In the meantime, what are the other best alternatives for home hair removal that work? Thanks!
