OKC Haus Bioceuticals tests, markets successful treatment from India for eczema, psoriasis
OKLAHOMA CITY — A medical doctor who’s also a homeopath in rural India is successfully treating people suffering from eczema and psoriasis — including babies with severe cases — with an ointment made of tree bark, roots, leaf extracts and 22 other natural herbs.
Meanwhile in Oklahoma City, Mike Centola — a scientist and entrepreneur who’s already successfully commercialized technologies developed at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation — has proved the ointment’s efficacy in clinical trials used for prescriptive drugs. He’s marketing the ointment, MetaDerm, through Amazon, with plans to partner with a pharmaceutical company in India and manufacture the evidence-based herbal medicine here.
From his fourth-floor offices at 755 Research Parkway, Centola, 52, recently sat down with The Oklahoman to talk about his life and career, including founding Haus Bioceuticals, Inc. in 2010. The company employs 10 and has annual revenues of $750,000.
