Tinnitus

Targeted Plasticity Therapy

Mark, a 34-year-old army veteran, was one of 60 people who participated in the TPT clinical safety trial for Tinnitus. He suffers from a constant, high-pitched ringing that he describes as a teapot shrieking in his head, as a result of an explosion in battle.

TxBDC conducted initial research and development into the VNS therapy for Tinnitus; after which one of our partner companies, MicroTransponder, further developed the technology and brought the treatment to clinical trials. They are in the final phase of their initial clinical trials, and we are currently working with them to plan and coordinate the next phase of clinical study anticipated to begin recruiting patients in the next 6 months.

Further information regarding Tinnitus and VNS therapy can be found on MicroTransponder’s website.
