HLAA Webinar: Potential New Therapies and Clinical Trial Opportunities for Sudden and Noise-Induced Sensorineural Hearing Loss

January 20, 2022


Are you interested in learning about new, emerging therapies that could potentially restore hearing? Would you like to stay apprised of new clinical trials for individuals with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) – and learn how to enroll?

In this program, Frequency Therapeutics’ Chief Development Officer, Dr. Carl LeBel, provided an overview of outcomes from four completed clinical trials of FX-322, the Company’s product candidate, which is the first to have shown meaningful hearing improvements in clinical studies. Individuals that showed these improvements included those with a range of hearing loss severities and causes, and Dr. LeBel discussed the types of hearing loss where Frequency is currently focused. Grace Fitzgerald, Director of Clinical Operations for Frequency, shared information about a current clinical trial for FX-322 with sites across the country and opportunities for individuals to enroll. A Q&A discussion followed the presentation.

Frequency’s hearing program focuses on addressing the underlying cause of SNHL by regenerating cells in the ear that are necessary for healthy hearing.
