      Hello everyone,

      I was in contact with a doctor from St. Joseph University in Beirut and wanted to participate in a Tinnitus study. He told me that they unfortunately enrolled it already and the preliminary results showed a benefit in treating tinnitus with sulodexide (as known as Vessel Due F).

      https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02737670?term=tinnitus&rank=69

      Thought I'd let you know, I might give it a try. The side effects seem justifiable.

      "When comparing our results, it showed that patients who received MS (Group A) had a consistent improvement in THI and acufenometry (79.4%). The outcome in Group B in which tinnitus was treated with Melatonin alone showed an improvement in QoL, when evaluated with THI and acufenometry in 58.8%."

      It's unfortunate that the study didn't include a placebo group... we can't tell if the improvements are due to placebo effects.

      Agreed, such a basic scientific necessity but they didn't do it...

      Hi Rick,
      no detectable hearing loss, but did not do a high frequency audio-gram.. it is sort of a hiss in both of my ears. And yes destroyed everything for me as well..

      About the subject of this thread: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02737670
      This clinical trial is placebo controlled.
      Status: this study has been completed. Study completion date: August 2017.

      I did not find any results. So I sent an e-mail today to Elias Eter and Joseph Maarrawi, the contacts of the Faculty of Medecine of Saint Joseph University of Beirut, to ask for the results.
