People usually go out of their way to ensure that their health is in good shape. That is why scientist and doctors are always working round the clock to come up with discoveries that will help people lead long and healthy lives. Bloomberg reveals that one recent breakthrough is regenerative medicine by Cameron Clokie.
Its primary purpose is to use cells, specifically stem cells in the replacement of tissue or organs that are damaged by diseases, accidents or due to other issues. If put to good use, this method could help minimize heart attacks because damaged heart tissues can now be regenerated.
Regenerative medicine holds quite a lot of potential in saving lives considering the fact it mainly uses stem cells, which adopt any shape. Therefore, if a cancer patient has damaged liver cells, it is possible to use regenerative medicine to create better cells to replace the damaged ones. Before this discovery, doctors used artificial methods in the diagnosis of strokes, cardiac arrests, and other heart-related issues.
However, about 90% of the bodies of recipients would reject the treatment. However, with regenerative meds, the mortality rate of the people with such matters will be highly reduced. The reason being that the cells are from your body, which means that your system is already familiar with them, thus, they don’t experience problems working with them. Apart from saving lives, regenerative medicine is quite profitable.
The man behind the discovery
Cameron Clokie is a man who boasts impressive curriculum vitae. He graduated in 1985 from McGill University as a doctor of dental surgery and later a Diploma in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery from the same facility. Additionally, he holds many certificates in other areas, which include bone structure and a doctorate in philosophy.

According to Crunchbase, Cameron Clokie has worked in the health industry for so many decades and occupied various positions in notable companies such as the University of Toronto where he was a professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery until his recent retirement.
Currently, Cameron is the CEO of Induce Biologics, a facility that focuses on regenerative medicine. He used the opportunity to set the foundation for other doctors across the world in bio-implants.
Clokie also writes educative journals about his area of expertise to help others to learn more about regenerative medicine.
