Researchers from Uppsala University have been able to document and visualise hearing loss-associated genes in the human inner ear, in a unique collaboration study between otosurgeons and geneticists. The findings illustrate that discrete subcellular structures in the human organ of hearing, the cochlea, are involved in the variation of risk of age-related hearing loss in the population. The study is

Tinnitus was significantly associated with pre-existing primary open-angle glaucoma, researchers reported in the  Journal of Glaucoma . “The underlying mechanism relating glaucoma and tinnitus is not exactly clear,”  Tung-Mei Kuang, MD, PhD,  of the department of ophthalmology at Taipei Veterans General Hospital in Taiwan, and colleagues wrote. “Vascular dysregulation is one possible common pathway. Although POAG [primary open-angle glaucoma] is multifactorial, and
