Insight into protective mechanisms for hearing loss suggests potential gene therapy or medicine

Researchers from the Eaton-Peabody Laboratories of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear and Harvard Medical School have created a new mouse model in which by expressing a gene in the inner ear hair cells — the sensory cells that detect sound and sense balance — protects the mice from age-related hearing loss (ARHL) and noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), the two most common forms of deafness…
