Hair cell loss, the most common cause of deafness, is often associated with auditory nerve degeneration. Our goal was to determine the influence of combined ciliary-derived neurotrophic factor (CNTF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) gene therapy on the survival of spiral ganglion neurons (SGNs) after elimination of inner hair cells in the mature guinea pig ear. Seven days after bilateral deafening, a 5-microl suspension of CNTF and/or BDNF adenovirus vectors was injected into the… CONTINUE READING
