Tiny Genetic Patch Stops Deafness

Researchers used a small genetic patch to partially restore hearing and balance in deaf mice with Usher syndrome, according to a new report published in Nature Medicine. The animal study, which is still in its early stages, could eventually develop into new treatments for Usher syndrome, a congenital hearing disorder which usually goes hand-in-hand with blindness as well. When the scientists injected the profoundly deaf mice with the genetic patch, they developed into partially hearing mice with no balance problems… (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)
