      Bruce, I got the same email...

      "Hello Dear Applicant,

      Thank you for signing the electronic medical release form!

      We may be in touch later if we run into any difficulty collecting records; that is if the office requires a wet signature, any additional verification, or if they don't have the records that we need to continue. If that happens, we'll inform you right away.

      Once we have received all the required medical records, we will submit them for review to a panel of audiologists. They will review your records and determine if the study would be a good match for you. Once that decision is rendered, we'll be in touch again to provide you with their decision and any next steps, if applicable.

      Please note that this process can take up to 8 weeks depending on how quickly the clinics process the medical record request. Medical records are shared with the panel of audiologists as soon as they are obtained. However, if you have any questions or concerns in the meantime please feel free to contact us here, at hearingstudy@clarahealth.com.
      If you have a copy of your own records, please feel free to email them to records@clarahealth.com to expedite the process and reference study FX-322-208."

      in my case, after going through the testing for the FX-322 trial, I got feedback the next day. Prior to that, there was maybe a couple of weeks to review my records and schedule the testing - about 1 month start to finish (this was last November/December timeframe).

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud music, then ototoxic drug (Paxil)
      That's the one!

      The question is whether to go through with it, if selected. Is FX-345 so much better that it merits waiting for those trials?? And do we think this will help tinnitus, as well? I only have moderate hearing loss...

      The described difference between FX-322 and FX-345 is the penetration into the cochlea. Where FX-322 is mostly surface level, FX-345 is deeper into the spiral formation where hair cells governing word recognition are located.

      Honestly, it's just good you sent your information in. Considering the connections between hearing loss and hair cells and hearing loss and tinnitus. It's likely that even non-tested hearing loss can relate to damaged hair cells and thus FX-322 and FX-345 are possible aids in mending if not curing. There is a potential good it can do for tinnitus sufferers now or in the future.

      I wouldn't even try to influence your decision whatsoever. I could not give impartial advice as I am almost fanatically hopeful with the potential of Frequency Therapeutics.

      You said you have hearing loss at 3 kHz and 4 kHz. FX-322 doesn't reach that far. Based on what their slide was showing, FX-345 will.

      True. I also have a big dropoff at 8 kHz, as well.
