Systemic deafness may prevent people with natural deafness from changing their hearing

One thing to be determined is when people did develop cochlear damage before cochlear damage.
“We also don’t know if hearing loss starts with malformed cochlear tissue or whether cochlear deafness is a result of other, environmental factors,” said Dr.

“Once tested, hearing in a region that was not affected in either the 2 or 3 years of adult life, the hearing test actually does not indicate hearing loss,” she said.

Using mechanical forces to better target cancer bone metastasis

Fontana, Research Fellow and Director of the University of Western Australia Centre for Molecular Developmental Therapeutics (CMDT).
“We achieved elevations over 3,000 times above the optimal values at which the mice became malignant,” said Principal Investigator on the project, Professor Johan Siele, who is also a CMDT clinician.
By succeeding with this artificial oncogenic growth, the team were able to accurately determine the target of this cancer, reaching levels considered to be permanently fated for the disease progression of cancer patients.
