Hope for tinnitus sufferers

18th December 2009

The RNID has funded research which has raised the possibility of successfully treating the ear-ringing disorder tinnitus soon after its onset.

A team from the University of Western Australia showed that it might be possible to treat tinnitus - for a limited period – by reducing signals from the brain to the ear that cause the ringing, buzzing or whistling. Dr Ralph Holme, director of biomedical research at RNID, said the charity was “extremely excited” about the significant progress the research had made into identifying a possible window of opportunity for future treatments.
