      @FGG I don't think the time line is set in stone. And with the plans to reduce bureaucratic procedures at the FDA, it may help speed up the process for you and other tinnitus sufferers.

      And further in the future, it could become possible to directly reprogram supporting cells in the inner ear of a deafened individual, as a way to restore hearing.

      Isn't this what FX-322 already is supposed to be doing? Seems like these researchers are a bit behind.

      Yeah lol it's so weird I see so many of these papers mention hearing regeneration like it's way off in the distant future or something. Seems kind of incongruous given we have the likes of FX-322 in phase 2.

      I don’t think FX-322 actually directly ‘reprograms’ the hair cells. Frequency and its people are from the science community, so I take it scientists know about it.

      Frequency induces a subset of support cells that are progenitor cells (LGR5+) to divide into a hair cell and a replacement for itself (support cell).
