For patients with severe sensory-neural hearing loss, cochlear implants (CI) are a good choice of treatment to bypass the malfunctioning or missing inner hair cells as they transmit the energy directly to the auditory pathway.
The most important advantage of this study is establishing required in vitro evidence for animal model study and then clinical study for treatment of sensory-neural hearing loss by cell therapy with neural stem cells derived from the olfactory epithelium.
