Researchers in Australia may have found a cure to tinnitus after tests on guinea pigs, reports the Daily Express.
A team from the University of Western Australia argues that a drug called furosemide could be the key, in that it lowers the
activity of the auditory nerve, reducing neural hyperactivity in a specific part of the brain that processes sound.
Lead researcher Dr Helmy Mulders said: ‘Studies in human tinnitus sufferers are still needed to confirm our results, but
lowering the activity of the auditory nerve may be a promising approach.’
