Hearing Through Your Nose

Posted by on Aug 24, 2015 1:00:00 PM

Scientists in Australia have discovered that mesenchymal stem cells [derived from nasal mucosa] may have the potential to preserve hearing among individuals whose hearing loss began in infancy or in early life. Such hearing loss carries broad implications for growth and development: The loss of sensory cells in the cochlea can lead to substantial language and cognitive delays. The researchers believe the injected mesenchymal stem cells induce local, specialized stem cells to function properly, repair tissue damage and prevent further deterioration. In the study, the animals that received the stem cells showed evidence of improved hearing, with hearing thresholds that were far lower and more sensitive than untreated controls.
