I hadn't read the 2011 tinnitus in rats study before, but I had read an article discussing the second link (human study). The Serenity device in the third link looks very promising, but the implantable pulse generator sure seems BIG to me. 

Perhaps, I ought to word it this way:

With my level of tinnitus, I don't see a need to use this device. However, if my tinnitus were severe, I would seriously consider trying this device.

Has anyone on this forum tried the Serenitiy implant?

Indeed, i't good to see there are possible solutions when T gets out of control.

I don't think the device is much bigger then a pacemaker, placed in the same spot.

A drug cocktail for cochlear hair cell regeneration, sounds promising.
But would this reduce T and H ? Maybe one day...

I think its already happened. Frequency Therapeutics will publish data on their Phase 1/2 during H1 2019. The trial finished in December and they just got another 42$M Cash injection in January, so it is promising...!

This is the genius presenting:

Wow, thx Johan. That last question was the most important one, and this sounded still promising.

Dr. Dirk De Ridder (associated with Brai3n in Belgium).

Nice overview of treatments for T.



Also talks about vegus nerve stimulation.

Neuromodulation doesn't seem to work when you have hissing T (broadband), only benefit for pure tone T. So i'm not going to try it. Also heard from someone that his T got more severe after 2 treatments...

Also interesting:
"Frequency specific amplification might be better for H than T."


This is probably what dr. Norena does. But it scares me a bit because this also could worsen T.
