OBJECTIVE There is no treatment established for congenital sensorineural hearing loss because the majority of the cases are hereditary. Although congenital sensorineural hearing loss is thought to be hereditary, this hearing loss occur postnatally. We hypothesized that the transplantation of MSCs (mesenchymal stem cells) to the cochlea would be an effective therapy for stopping or delaying the progression of sensorineural hearing loss in childhood. METHODS Cultured mouse MSCs were labeled… CONTINUE READING
