Researchers Investigate Ability of Stem Cells to Cure Deafness

Ongoing stem cell research reveals the potential for these cells to cure fatal diseases such as: leukemia, Parkinson’s, and lymphoma, but they also demonstrate the ability to treat other life-altering conditions such as deafness. The latest research by Deafness Research UK involves transforming stem cells into normal “hair” cells, which are absent in individuals with severe hearing loss.
