Oklahoma discovery could restore hearing with a pillPublished: Tuesday, August 22, 2017 By: Scott Meacham Source: NewsOK
Does anyone in your life suffer from hearing loss?
In the U.S., hearing loss impacts the daily lives of 48 million people from young to old — in classrooms, in conversation, in business and social settings, even at home as they watch a football game or the news.
Imagine the impact if there was a pill that could prevent hearing loss and regenerate the nerve endings inside the ear to restore hearing to people whose hearing has already declined.
Such a therapy is moving toward clinical testing at Otologic Pharmaceutics, a spinout of technology from the Hough Ear Institute and Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.
