For me. Bad news. Chronic patients are marginalized. Regarding AM, it states that only take effect in tinnitus 1 year. Someone is using VNS Forum being tested? http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/43843/title/The-Sounds-of-Silence/ "To treat the condition, the group set about designing a drug that would block NMDA receptors. These days, Auris is testing the small-molecule drug S-ketamine in two Phase 3 trials of trauma-induced tinnitus patients. The treatment, delivered directly into the inner ear via three injections over three days, must catch the disorder while the problem is still within the ear, before the brain has begun overcompensating for the loss of hearing. Once that happens, no amount of adjustment to the receptors on the auditory nerves will do any good." "Preliminary results suggest that S-ketamine is effective beyond three months, but declines in effectiveness within a year of the initial trauma, so later stages of the trial are being refocused on the four- to six-month time frame. The trials will be completed at the end of this year, and Auris hopes to submit to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for approval in the summer of 2016."
