Dr. Cameron Clokie Champions The Future Of Regenerative Medicine

Dr. Cameron Clokie has for the last three decades curved himself a niche in the field of regenerative medicine. This time, Clokie played an active role in academic dentistry and clinical practice at the University of Toronto. While here, he was named Head of the Maxillofacial Surgery in 1998 before being crowned professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery by the University.

Nonetheless, Apart from his duties at the University, Dr. Clokie is also a serial entrepreneur and CEO of Induce Biologics Inc. The Biologics Company specializes in the development of regenerative medicine and innovative solutions for musculoskeletal reconstruction.

Dr. Clokie’s achievements

During his three-decade tenure as an academician, Dr. Clokie published several research papers and held presentations nationally and internationally about regenerative medicine. In particular, Clokie specializes in bone reconstruction and healing. He has particularly had immense breakthroughs in bone healing that he has shared with both the academic and commercial enterprises.

For instance, in a recent presentation dubbed Coaxing bones to grow anew at the University of Toronto, Dr. Clokie illustrated the success his research and innovative regenerative and bone healing medicine has achieved. To drive his point on the effectiveness of the regenerative medicine and bone healing home, Dr. Clokie presented the audience with two victims of benign tumor that causes an aggressive growth of the jaw bone. If left untreated, the tumor can cause face distortion and in extreme cases fill the airwaves thus chocking the patient to death.

One of the tumor victims, a 60-year old, Mr. Russel, was introduced to Clokie’s regenerative medicine that saw him regrow seven centimeters of his bottom right jaw. Interestingly, this regeneration only required four hours in the surgery room and two nights in the hospital. The other patient, a 20-year old, a 20-year old Canadian, Ms. McFarlane had to spend over 19-hours in the operating room and an additional two weeks in the hospital.

Mr. Russell seems to have responded well to the surgery and medication and has been able to get back on his day to day business of gardening and golfing in summer and skiing in winter. On the other hand, McFarlane still struggles with the condition, more than seven months after the first operation.

Bottom line

According to Dr.Cameron Clokie, Mr, Russel’s success case was only made possible by his breakthrough in the use of a protein that stimulates adult stem cells into becoming bone tissue. Plus the innovation is just one of the 25 US and internationally approved and pending patents by Dr. Clokie.
