      Realizing it is far from being a fact, I kindly ask you to share how do you estimate the chances of success of at least one of the various studies ongoing to restore hearing and cure tinnitus? Being a researcher yourself, you might have some more information.

      Thank you most sincerely,

      A few words about me. Due to an infection by virus in 1993, I lost a lot from my high-frequency hearing (2KHz and above - ski slope). Even if I continued to act as an active individual, this has caused me a lot of discomfort during the years. The biggest discomfort comes from the current hopelessness for a cure. Hearing aids do not really help considering also all the negative effects. I tried but ...
