Jan. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Cancer patient Melissa Lisbon talks with Bloomberg's Marc Perrier about a helmet-like chilled silicone gel cap that she has been wearing during chemotherapy sessions to prevent hair loss. Lisbon is among 20 patients testing the cap, made by closely held Dignitana AB, of Lund, Sweden, that's designed to cool the scalp and keep chemotherapy’s poisonous effects from reaching hair roots.
