Abstract

Gene therapy is a novel therapeutic strategy that holds promise in treating many human diseases. Implementation of gene therapy for hearing disorders has been brought closer by recent advances in recombinant DNA technology. In addition, recent progress in the elucidation of genetic and molecular basis of hearing disorders, a potential target for gene therapy, has been dramatic. This provides impetus for further studies evaluating the efficacy of gene therapy in audiological medicine.
