      Action on Hearing Loss sponsored research where a large-scale screening of already FDA-approved drugs and bioactive molecules is performed in zebrafish to find new drugs that restore hearing. This research will conclude next month. The study is performed by Dr Lavinia Sheets at the University of Washington in St Louis. I find the part where they are screening drugs the FDA already approved for other pathologies particularly interesting.

      Anyone know more about this?

      Well, if they find a FDA-approved drug you could in theory ask your doctor/ENT to prescribe it...

      One of the largest Dutch newspapers today published a letter from neurologists, geriatrics etc. calling on the minister of Health to invest more in dementia prevention. Their message basically is that since dementia costs Dutch a society a lot of money and decades long research haven’t resulted in a cure, we should focus more on prevention. One of the first factors they list, after exercise and normal blood pressure, is improved hearing. Wondering how we might use this to our advantage.
