Hearing disorders: a high unmet medical need
young people at risk of hearing loss
Hearing loss has been ranked as the fourth highest cause of disability worldwide, higher than many other chronic diseases including diabetes, dementia, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Deafness profoundly affects the quality of life of patients and is strongly linked to cognitive decline in the elderly. Unaddressed hearing loss costs countries an estimated US$ 750 billion annually, therefore posing a significant issue to our health systems.
A hundred pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and thousands of academics are contributing to scientific progress in the auditory field. Although no drugs have been approved by authorities to treat hearing loss and tinnitus yet, some actors are reporting promising scientific research results. These hold the promise of filling an unmet medical need and having transformative impacts on patient populations in the near future.
