For a long time, scientists have been working hard to come up with regenerative medicine solutions. Entrepreneurs are investing heavily to fund research that will come up with musculoskeletal reconstruction solutions.
Cameron Clokie is one the scientist who has made significant progress when it comes to regenerative medicine. Dr. Clokie is also a serial entrepreneur and the CEO of Induce Biologics; a regenerative medicine company.
Crunchbase revealed that Cameron Clokie has been explaining many concepts of regenerative medicine. Many people don’t know what regenerative medicine involves. It involves using molecules, utilized cell as well as biomaterials to fix structure that is malfunctioning as a result of injuries or disease.
Cameron says that there have been significant developments in the sector, but regenerative medicine treatments remain very low. Very few breakthroughs have been beneficial to patients, but private hospitals are making huge profits from unproven therapies as patients are desperate for treatment.
Blood transfusion is the earliest practice of regenerative medicine. It was followed by bone marrow transplantation which helped blood cancer patients. Also for severe burns and scalds injuries, patients can be helped using cell therapy. Read more: Cameron Clokie Believes Technology is Changing Dentistry For The Better
This involves getting cell from one part of the body of the same person and use it to fix the destroyed tissues which have resulted from an injury. These are some of the developments that Clokie highlights showing that regenerative medicine is growing.
Despite these developments, Clokie says that scientists are struggling to come up with new therapies as well as generative medicine treatments. That is why it has not become the main practice in the medical industry. Many scientists are working on new solutions that will treat many common diseases and injuries using regenerative medicine. For the past one year, there have been tremendous developments. A chip technology was developed, and it can change one cell to another and eventually heal organs.
Cameron has used his musculoskeletal reconstruction knowledge to reconstruct bones. He has treated many patients like Peter Russel and MS. McFarlane.
To be this influential, Cameron is highly educated. At the University of Toronto, he has been the head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery until this year when retired from academics. Cameron Clokie has made several presentations and published several papers on regenerative medicine as well as bone reconstruction.
