Gene Therapy To Treat Deafness

...icine. Scientists are of the opinion that viral vector found in a developmental regulatory gene called Atoh1 can be used to encourage new hairs to grow in the cochleae of the inner ear. This gene is also called Math1. The new sensory hairs grow as the differentiated non-sensory cells of the inner ear are...
