Drug-based Therapy

OTOSTEM employs human stem cells to generate human otic cellular models to allow screening for ototoxic, otoprotective and otoregenerative compounds to develop a drug-based hearing loss treatment.

Cell-based Therapy

OTOSTEM addresses this urgent and unmet medical need for causal hearing loss therapies by focusing on human stem cell technology.

We will follow two major directions to implement a therapeutic use of human stem cell technology for hearing loss.

Welcome to the OTOSTEM Website

The lack of human otic cell models represents a significant roadblock hampering the development of drug-based or cell-based therapies. Hearing impairment is the most frequent
human sensory deficit and is mainly caused by the irreversible loss of neurosensory cells in the cochlea.
