      The exclusion criteria is on the clinicaltrials.org. John you can always say you got T maybe a month from now. Everyone on earth lies, so anyone saying "I dont lie" is going into the realms of the parodox. They are lieing as they make that statement, so for them moral integrity is probably the lower than the person that admits that they do lie.


      Basically they are looking for people with T under 3 months.

      They do not want anyone with fluctuating T

      They want people to protect their ears.

      They do not want anyone whose ear discharged in the past couple of days or are getting other treatmnets.

      More can be found on the clincial trial website.

      Grace this drug will not protect you (most likely) from your T getting worse in the future (from say an intense noise). But I agree with you if you can get the treatment, I say go for it. You would get paid 300 dollars.

      Thanks Mark. I may try that angle. I have constant, persistent T. I wish it was intermittent. I hope I can get in or get lucky and don't need it. Things don't seem to be looking good.

      I read that the criteria says you cant be on anti depressants or anxiety meds? Which i am. And another page i read didnt mention any of those and just said cant be pregnant and other health issues which i dont have and also said willing to use plugs to protect your ears during the process which i would...can anyone help me find the right criteria for this stage 3?

      Maybe you could still go but participate in the reception and not in the afterpary? Also you can stay for like an hour and then go home:) Prob a wedding is not as loud as bar as well. And hopefully its your sisters wedding so maybeyou can negotiate about noise levels.

      First ent I found that was actually knowledgeable about t . I asked him if he knew about the trials and he had a patient with pretty bad t go and he has had pretty good results. This patient had it pretty bad and could not sleep before the injections.

      I was in contact with a doctor in Jacksonville a few days ago about participating in the am-101 trial and unfortunately I was told I did not qualify due to being over 3 months. I am around 4 months at this point. I read on clinicaltrials.gov that they are accepting people who have had tinnitus for up to 1 year in the third trial. I guess the Jacksonville location must have been part of the second trial. Anyways, after looking at tinnitus-study.info/ the closest location to me is in Tennessee. Does anyone know what the cutoff radius is to participate in the study? I am on the Alabama/Florida line which isn't close, but not really that far either.

      No, it isn't the Jacksonville location. It is the US. The only studies going above 3 months are in the EU at this time. I was told that the 3 month window was actually at the insistence of the FDA, and that Auris may go back to them and request a higher upper limit if they have trouble finding people who can fit the strict criteria.

      Do you think AM 101 will be used for chronic/permenant tinnitus at all when it will be available in the future ? The trails are being done only for acute tinnitus and they say it will show no benefit on the chronic T. So if it's available in 2017-18 will they make some changes in it so that chronic suffers can hope for some relief in future? Any other potential treatment in the pipeline for permenant suffers ?

      I dont see reason why AM101 will not be functional against chronic T, if it can repair overproduction of glutamic acid in damaged cochlea.

      Mine is definitely noise induced so I'm pretty sure the cochlea is playing a part in this horrific noise in my head. Since am101 focuses on the cochlea, I don't see why it wouldn't help.

      I understand why people are so hopeful about this drug, as it might be the first one to come. However, I would not be so positive about it. Thread the main thread about AM101 (has the most posts). There is a man there, under the name Resonance CEO, who works in a medical company and is a scientist. He seems to think that it will not work.
      The point is that it has been researched that in time there are changes in certain parts of the tinnitus patients' brain. Therefore in time tinnitus will happen in your brain, not in the ear. The injection into the ear wont help then, because it wont reach the necessary part. What scientists dont know though, is where this changes exactly happen and why. I dont have time to post links now, but I know I have seen some articles about them and can do some researchagain later in the evening.
      I see this as a positive thing, because if AM101 works this means scientists are even further away from finding a cure. AM101 only helps reduce the sound and surely wont work on everyone (no drug does). However, for permanent sufferers I myself see many treatments in progress - 1) Autifony, 2) Neuromodulation, 3) VNS, 4) MDMA. All of this are aimed at chronic sufferers. I think Autifony and VNS are starting Phase II this year. Of course maybe none of them will work, however, it seems promising. We are have threads about them here, read about them more. Trials take time though, so if we have smth in 5 years that would be very lucky.
      As Am101 is targeted on the cochlea, I think it might work for noise- or infection-induced spikes, so that already good news.
      I do not mean to bring you down, but as Hudson said - we should have guarded optimism. Science does not rely on belief but on rational data, and therefore it is probably more important to focus on the facts, and right now it is more the patients who think AM101 will work, not doctors. However, we have TRT available, which gives good results. Just continue living your life as well as possible, time will fly by and before you know it there will be smth for chronic suffererss too.

      Re what you said above: 1) Autifony, 2) Neuromodulation, 3) VNS, 4) MGMT.

      I am finding links to 2) and 3) but searches of Autifony brings up a mixed bag of pretzels, and MGMT just brings up your post. Can you please elaborate on what those two refer to? (And I'm presuming Neuromodulation = the "Acoustic CR Nueromodulation"?).

      Thanks much... Zimichael
