National Clinical Trial Presents Opportunities for Audiologists and Patients

ADA is pleased to share exciting news of a broad national clinical trial that may benefit both you and your patients by helping you personalize your care even further. Emerging new drug therapies may enable audiologists to help patients improve speech clarity. One such drug candidate is FX-322, a regenerative therapy that has already shown clinically significant results in trials. A national clinical trial, led by Frequency Therapeutics, will investigate a single dose of FX-322, delivered via injection through the eardrum on the round window where it diffuses into the cochlea.
