      AOHL stand for Action on Hearing Loss, a pre-eminent charity for hearing disorders and tinnitus based in the UK. THey have carried out ground breaking work, for example the work of Dr Rivolta, has been world class and his discoveries have been groundbraking, they support basic research. companies, patients.

      1/1990 (very approx)
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Probably ear infection. (Also led to HF hearing loss)

      AOHL is the current name for what used to be called the RNID - Royal National Institute for the Deaf (there is or was a corresponding RNIB organisation for the blind. I don't know if they've also come under the influence of the rebranders and/or have felt the need for a more politically correct title). Well, while I felt that "RNID" was a perfectly good name, I won't get too upset by the unnecessary name change because AOHL does some great work, so all credit to them.

      Leaving that aside, I'm new here (hello, by the way), so I suppose I should not start off by associating myself with conspiracy theories, but it has to be said that if there were to be an overnight cure for deafness, it wouldn't do the hearing-aid industry a power of good, would it? So I do sometimes wonder if the reason that no organic cures for deafness have so far been found is that people haven't been looking hard enough (or haven't been allowed to, or haven't been funded sufficiently to).

      Leaving conspiracy theories aside :) since I'm now a lot older than I was when I first got tinnitus (in my early 40s, probably), hearing loss now features much more prominently in my personal world view.

      While some people might find that their tinnitus is so bad that they can't really function normally, I suspect that the majority of us do eventually habituate and can lead an ordinary everyday life. Hearing loss, when it manifests itself in severe or profound deafness, is another matter entirely. Hearing aids may help, but are far from perfect, and can't help in some cases.

      What I am leading up to is that I think it is perfectly proper if research into cures for deafness were given a higher priority than research into cures for tinnitus. And to the extent that some tinnitus is apparently caused by hearing loss, at least in those cases there is a good chance that a cure for one would also be a cure for the other.

      AM 101 will not be a cure for long term tinnitus and/or fot most sufferers....just for a small subset.
      They are already working on AM 102 (possibly for that reason?) I am saying that they havent finishhed trialling AM101 but already tweaking it in AM102. That should tell you something about AM101.
      I have not heard any sensational story of improvement thus far in phsae 3.

      You sound as if it would be better if it took 15 years instead of 5 :confused:

      Why all the distrust? I am not saying, let's all be delusional, but if a reputable source says it might be possible, it means it might be possible. If it's reputable it will not say anything that is not realistic.

      I believe in science. That's my god. :popcorndrink:

      Noise - I think
      No I'd be happy if they would do it in 5 years but I don't think they will. So I stated that a window of 10-15 years would be an acceptable one. If it takes longer than that then I would be most dissatisfied.

      Exactly! Every tinnitus treatment device in clinicals is 80% effective, every drug treatment is only 5 years away, total tinnitus cure within 10 years. - Been going on for decades and we are still not as close as some may believe.

      Sometimes we focus to much of are attention on tinnitus and a future cure.

      If you want idea on how exciting the future will be in the next 10 years in general. Listen to Ray Kurzweil on you
      tube it's unbelievable what's coming.
      He takes the exponential growth of the last 10 years or so and extrapolates that into the future.

      I cringe at the 5-10 years away statement's most of the time.

      I just like to know what researchers are currently doing and where they are at regarding progress.

      Ok point well taken...

      Nuclear fusion has been around for 50 years, cold fusion is still a pipe dream.
      Regenerative medicine is going down, it's happening, as I write this. This is not blind optimism, it's the 21st century.

      We will have hearing regeneration, but the earth may have pandemics, world wars, or global warming will screw everything up except for the northern hemisphere and of course rich people who can buy the appropriate technology to survive.

      Regenerative medicine is on its way folks, less than five years for sure.

      My three cents.

      Haha. I wouldn't trust a random article predicting a date for a cure. I think People just use 5-10 years because it sounds long term and conservative. In 2030 the cure for tinnitus will probably be 5-10 years away aswell lol.

      I think either Frequency, Otonomy or Decibel will have had a successful trial within 5 years. We will have a lot more information by the end of 2020, however (From Frequency and Otonomy).

      The guys in Massachusetts have already figured it out, sure it might not cure everyone, but it will be another huge medical change in modern medicine as we know it, just as computers changed the world. I am so confident we will shortly witness another amazing scientific advancement.

      These folks are freaking really smart, have the best labs, minds, universities and it's undisputed they have some of the best hospitals on planet earth. I am from Boston, there are and were multiple biomedical parts of the city 25, 30 years ago when I left town. Back then they were growing skin, unimaginable stuff on mice, and I knew probably 1 percent of the research going on, as it was not my profession or part of my existence. I would see massive labs as I rode my bicycle or drove a car on the Charles river. (Eric Burden and the Animals - Down by the River, great song).

      I understand the cynicism, the doubt, the resignation... but please understand regenerative medicine is here, the ice caps are melting really fast, and artificial intelligence will probably be a reality rather sooner than we would like. Look how exponential the digital and computer revolution took off... as I've said before, this is science fiction with all its Orwellian doom and grander. The biomedical renaissance, revolution, is just starting to put the pedal on the metal.

      Either that, or am I completely naive and deluded and have spent too much time on the tinnitus forum emerged in the salvation of hearing regeneration.

      Post note..... if and when I can scrounge the money....iam betting big time on frequency. I have always loathed the modern stock market for a bunch of personal reasons, but I do love games of chance. I think the odds are definetaly awesome. I want to buy stock. How to get the money is a bit of quandary I haven't figured out or seem to be even making a dent in now. Absolute financial doldrums post acoustic trauma and employment upheaval . Teaching and Hypercusis mixed in with copious amounts of tinnitus is unsustainable. So yah, iam pretty skint as the Brits would say making my stock broking ambitions non existent....it's funny really

      I *have* to believe I will be able to hear music again. I wrote to and then got a nice email from one of the researchers in Boston saying he obviously can't make any promises but he feels pretty confident we will have a regenerative therapy of at least some sort in about 5 years.

      People over estimate what will come in two years and under estimate what well come in 10 years.

      If you want to know all the unbelievable things that are coming .
      Educate yourself by listening to people on the cutting edge of technology,

      Genetics...artificial intelligence...regenerative medicine..

      And understand that this growth is not linear but exponential
