"Japan’s treatment of mice with stem cells, “deafness”
Japanese Health, Labor and Welfare Group, a recently implanted stem cells in mice have hearing impairment of the inner ear, the success of the restoration of some hearing mice.

According to Japan’s “Yomiuri Shimbun” reported that researchers said that in the inner ear hair cells, fibroblasts, and if dead, will cause hearing loss. At present, the cause of the death of hair cells in hearing loss is difficult to use stem cell therapy. In this experiment, they are mainly trying to treat stem cells with fibroblasts resulted in the death of hearing loss.

First of all researchers to make the mouse inner ear fiber cell death, and then extract stem cells in bone marrow of mice and implanted into the inner ear of mice, to observe the hearing can be improved. Two weeks later, researchers found that treatment with stem cells, six mice restore hearing average 60%.

Abnormal cells or inner ear dysfunction was considered with sudden deafness and Meniere’s disease and other diseases, new research for the treatment of these diseases has provided new ideas".
