The procedure involves using a protein to get trick stem cells into becoming bone tissue. Clokie says its similar to how a baby’s bones grow. With the technique, he has actually regrown a bone in the jaw just like the one that was lost. He says that most methods of rebuilding lost parts is to remove bone and muscle from on spot on the body and graft in onto another part.

In rebuilding the 60-year old’s jaw, it took a surgery of about four hours and within two weeks the patient was back to normal. Another patient who had ameloblastoma, which can eventually shut off the airway, was not so lucky. She did not qualify for the surgery and had to have a 19-hour surgery, where a part of her chin was used to replace the removed jaw bone. Her recover time was two months. She has one more surgery to complete the process.

For the first patient Dr. Clokie added a growth protein to a gel that was molded into place in the patients jaw. It is placed in the missing section and supported by a titanium rod. Several days later, blood vessels are growing over the gel and it is dissolving. The jawbone then regrows to close the gap. It is an amazing process on BizCommunity.com.

The drawback to the surgery is that most insurance companies will not cover the cost of the procedure and it is expensive. It can cost more that $6000. It is said that this procedure has been used to help fuse the spine. Dr. Clokie is now focusing on lower the cost of the procedure so that others can benefit.

Beneful Undergoes Changes To Address Customer Concerns

Pets are being accepted as family members by their owners and so pet owners are becoming more wary of the ingredients that are found in the foods they give their pets. They try to find foods that are as close as possible to the composition of human food.

One such brand is Beneful, a product of Nestle Purina PetCare. Beneful ranks as one of the top dog food sellers in the U.S., boasting about 14 million dogs who enjoy the product each year, according to Nielsen.

The criticism leveled against the brand ranges from the use of propylene glycol to the possibility of mycotoxins.

However, close to a third of the plaintiffs have dropped from the case and the allegations keep being changed by the class action lawyers. The company has made it clear by sell dog food on Amazon.com. It does not plan to settle the suit.Nestle Purina have embarked on reformulating the Beneful dry dog foods.

How End Citizens United Is Attempting To Reform The System

In 2010 a Supreme Court decision changed American elections. Out of that ruling came the creation of End Citizens United. The case that changed everything was Citizens United v F.E.C. The ruling created the ability for billionaires and special interests to spend an unlimited amount of money on elections for their own benefit, and to so in a way that was untraceable.

By backing candidates who have the goal to change the system End Citizens United is hoping to change things at a local and state level as well. By doing that the goal to overturn the ruling and create an amendment will be easier.

 

They believe that through three key steps they can create circumstances that can ultimately create a change for reform in the campaign system. These steps are electing pro-reform candidates, creating the issue of money in politics as a national priority and top concern, and using grassroots membership to show political power on the problem of money in the political world.

 

Through their donors, they have been able to generate millions of dollars that are being used to back these candidates and continue to generate more money to back more candidates. They are expanding their donor list and are aiming to grow and reach out to more people. Although the road to change is hard, because of End Citizens United attention is being brought to the issue and focus is being brought to the issue.

 

End Citizens United hopes to reform the corrupt political campaign system and eradicate Big Money from elections. They are focused on getting pro-reform candidates elected into office so that they can create real reform and bring real change to the system.

Entrepreneur Eric Lefkofsky’s Quest To Help Solve Breast Cancer

Eric Lefkofsky, who also founded Groupon, founded Tempus, Inc. in Chicago, Illinois. He recently partnered with the University of Chicago by giving the doctors there access to his data in order to help breast cancer patients. The data that he has provided them is molecular sequencing and analysis which allows the doctors to create individualized treatment plans for each patient. Additionally, Tempus will use the data gathered from 1,000 breast cancer patients in order to find patterns that will help see how other patients will respond to treatment in the future.

One of the doctors at the University of Chicago, Dr. Olufunmilayo Olopade, said that even though breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer very little data has been collected from past breast cancer patients in order to treat it. Due to this doctors have to make treatment decisions that don’t make use of specific gene information. By having access to this specific gene information the doctor will be able to make a more informed decision when treating each patient. The platform that Tempus designed makes use of machine learning and genomic sequencing. This data helps doctors make real-time, individualized treatment decisions which will lead to better outcomes.

Tempus has partnered with several health organizations over the past year. Among these is the Mayo Clinic, Penn Medicine, the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, and the University of Michigan.

Eric Lefkofsky founded Tempus in 2015 and serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the company. In addition to Tempus and Groupon he has founded a number of other successful companies including Uptake, Lightbank, and Mediabank. Lefkofsky graduated from the University of Michigan in 1991 and earned his JD in 1994 from the University of Michigan Law School.

In 2006 Lefkofsky founded Lefkofsky Family Foundation along with his wife, Liz. The charitable causes that they contribute to include education, medical research, human rights, and the arts. Among his other charitable activities, he is a Trustee of Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
