Cameron Clokie is Changing Lives with Breakthroughs in Regenerative Medicine in Toronto, Canada

Cameron Clokie is a Canadian scientist and dental surgeon with a strong focus on bone regeneration and facial reconstruction. Cameron Clokie has devised an innovative method to coax bones to regenerate and grow just like in an infant.

Adult stem cells are taken through a process that makes them grow into bone tissue enabling restoration and reconstruction of facial parts such as the jawbone.

This is a big breakthrough for tissue regeneration and is expected to change the game in reconstructive surgery. To rebuild body parts normally requires obtaining the components from another part of the body or relying on donors.

For example, a surgeon can use bone from the hip to rebuild the jaw. With this new treatment option, bio-implants are set to replace the demand for autogenous bone transplants.

The revolutionary treatment has many advantages over traditional surgical options. First, it is considered fairly non-invasive in comparison to similar traditional procedures that achieve the same effect. It is quick and cost-effective.

The surgery itself takes about a quarter of the time. The procedure leaves virtually no wounds or significant scars. Consequently, you require minimal hospital admission time for recovery. It allows patients to enjoy reduced surgery and recovery time.

This leads to a slashed healthcare bill. Faster recovery time means you can get back to your regular activities quicker. The procedure itself is still expensive due to a shortage of the protein required to trigger the bone regeneration process. Cameron Clokie has turned to biotechnology to come up with ways of obtaining the protein in commercially viable quantities that will make the treatment affordable.

Cameron Clokie received his doctor’s degree in dental surgery from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, in 1985. Subsequently, he completed his Ph.D. in bone regeneration at the same institution in 1992.

Currently, he is a professor and head of the oral and maxillofacial surgery unit at Toronto University.

He also runs a busy practice focused on bone regeneration and facial reconstruction. He has won numerous industry and research awards. For example in 2000, he won the best implant paper presented awarded by the International Association for Dental Research.

End Citizens United Ongoing Effort To Overturn Citizens United

A 2010 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States has made it possible for corporations, labor unions, and other institutions to donate unlimited amounts of untraceable money to our elections. This decision makes it possible for billionaires and corporations to significantly influence our elections in their efforts to gain significant political power. This decision has attracted the attention and concern of millions of Americans who are aware of the potential ramifications of this ruling. To that end, they have formed End Citizens United, a political action committee dedicated to reversing this Supreme Court action. End Citizens United (ECU) realize this is going to be a long fight but are convinced by supporting like-minded political candidates, at all levels of government, they can eventually get this poor decision overturned.

 

In their April 25, 2017, press release ECU announced their first round of endorsements for the House of Representatives in the 2018 elections. ECU will make it possible for these candidates to connect with their over 3 million members and encourage them to make campaign finance reform a top priority of their campaigns. To date, ECU has endorsed candidates in 19 districts in 11 states. The list of endorsement for the House in 2018 includes Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, Jerry McNerney, California, Peter DeFazio, Oregon, Ted Deutch, Florida and Pramila Jayapal of Washington. ECU will be endorsing candidates from every part of the country. The goal is to regain the majority in the House and put a stop to the efforts of the GOP, who support the interests of the super wealthy and corporate special interests. ECU will work with endorsed candidates to fight Super PACs and dark money groups that are attempting to hijack our democratic process.

 

An example of the kind of impact the ECU can have recently was in the Georgia 6th district special election. A little-known Democrat named Jon Ossoff forced a run-off election in an area that was once considered a GOP stronghold. The ECU and its members were able to raise over $825,000 to help Jon promote his progressive message. In 2016 the efforts of ECU were helpful in the election of two new members of the U.S. Senate, Maggie Hassan, and Catherine Cortez-Masto.

 

Besides the 11 House endorsements, April has been an exciting month for End Citizens United. The group announced they were projected to raise $35 million for the elections of 2018. Most of this money has been raised through small donations, averaging only $14, with over $4 million raised in Q1 of 2017. This amount will surpass the $25 million ECU was able to collect in the entire 2016 election cycle, making it the third largest PAC, with over 3 million members and over 330,000 donors. The ECU will continue their efforts to help elect majorities in both the House and Senate and return our election process to the people.
