Cameron Clokie’s Canadian Cell Therapy Journey
The concept and technology behind stem cell therapy have been simplified by scientist and experienced medical practitioners like Dr. Cameron Clokie. The donated cells are taken and put in the patient damaged part hence treating an existing injury or a disease. Therefore, the concept of regenerative therapy takes derived or donated cells, biomaterials, and molecules to fix body structures that fail to function due to injury or disease.
It is well known that the early approach of regenerative medicine was through blood transfusion although it is still in practice in almost all clinics. Bone marrow transplantation emerged as the second form of cell therapy that gave blood cancer patient a reason to celebrate healthy blood cells. For patients with severe burn injuries or scalds, cell therapy is employed by use of the cells originating from the same patient from the unaffected areas to allow skin graft treatment. Regenerative medicine has come a long way to the modern methods that are employed to generate new cells. It is believed that regenerative medicine can treat not only the patient but also increase the life expectancy.
However, the modern methods are not widely established in regenerative medicine.The cost of acquiring special cell regenerative facilities and qualified health personnel are extremely high. The high price has made the chip technology to have a retarded development and success in the industry.
From Clokie`s excellent Maxillofacial & Oral Surgeon experience, various benefits can be achieved by regenerative medicine. Dr. Cameron is well known as a surgeon, serial entrepreneur and a great scientist. Currently, he is serving as the CEO at Induce Biologics Company.Together with his team, they focus on musculoskeletal regeneration and reconstruction solutions. Cameron Clokie has been in clinical practices and academic dentistry for more than three decades. He was appointed the head and the professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery at the University of Toronto since 1998 to 2017.
Cameron Clokie has been in various working positions with several companies’ scientific advisory boards. Clokie has authored numerous journals and presented talks both internationally and nationally regarding bone regeneration and reconstruction therapies. He holds over 25 international and US patent which includes those of bone healing. He holds a doctorate of Dental Surgery and Ph.D. in Bone Regeneration.
