Listen, there’s more to life …
Hearing loss is common in adults and can have a negative effect on quality of life. If you or a loved one currently experience hearing loss, you may want to talk to your doctor about a new research study being conducted for the treatment of mild to moderate age-related hearing loss.

To be eligible to participate in this study you must be:

  • Male or female of non-childbearing potential between 50-70 years of age;
  • Received a current diagnosis of sensorineural hearing loss in the range of 30-60 dB;
  • Participants who are hearing aid users may take part in the study upon agreeing to refrain from wearing the hearing aid on the day of drug administration and for at least 24 hours after procedure visits

If you are eligible to participate in this study, you will attend approximately 5 study visits. All investigational medication and placebo (in-active look-alike pill), as well as all study related tests and study doctor’s visits will be provided at no cost to you. You may also be compensated for your time and travel.

Dr. John Carey is the principal investigator and is currently accepting subjects to take part in this clinical research study for hearing loss. If you are interested in participating in this study, or would like more information, please call (410) 955-1318.
