      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      MRI Scan
      U.S. FDA approves Fennec's hearing loss therapy
      This pharmaceutical, Pedmark, is now FFA approved for Cisplatin/chemo-induced hearing loss for ages 0-18 years old.

      I have no insights whether Pedmark is otoprotective for adults and for other medications besides Cisplatin. I theorize it should work for other ototoxic medications too but they trialed it for Cisplatin as it is better to trial it for one medication at a time. I also have no insights if it can prevent hearing loss from noise, nor do I know the mechanism of action.

      Very interesting to see something actually reached the market in the otoprotective range.

      Headphone Noise induced ( BEING STUPID)
      Why can't it just help with people who already have tinnitus :banghead: :cry:

      But hey at least something finally made it to market. Dr. Susan Shore is hopefully next.
