      With all the research it will be interesting to see what the next 10-20 years holds.

      Maybe loud music. Not sure.
      this is not the same. from the distance, i may look similar but here, the tests are on babies + it's their own cord blood stem cells. attheedgeofscience is having stem cells from another human being.

      adults don't develop the same as babies so it's difficult to say if this works for babies, it will work for adults.

      @James White, that's exactly what I was going to say.
      The study focuses on children who have their umbilical cord blood stored. And the number of patients is just ten.
      But whatever brings the future closer is good!

      In the future, maybe it will be standard thing to do, all babies have their stem cells stored in case they need them later in life?

      "Oh shit, my muscle is rotting! Better go to the hospital and get some of my stem cells"

      But the article says as well that the test are done on children with genetic hearing loss. Isn't that a bit different than noise-induced hearing loss/nerve damage?

      Looks like it's the opposite of this actually.

      From the wiki article on sensorineural hearing loss

      So this is for any type of hearing loss related to the inner ear not working right.
