Researchers are working diligently to find new ways to improve the hearing of people that have suffered hearing loss.

There is a new delivery method for the drug that targets the cochlear in the inner ear, which is a snail-like structure. The cochlear sends sounds to the brain for processing.

The new method, which has had excellent results being tested on animal tissue, combines a protein imitation and a drug that sticks to bones. When the protein and drug combined, neurons responded well on mouse ear tissue, which repaired the essential hair cells and neurons.
