New Press on ACR Tinnitus Treatment
Here’s another press article on Acoustic Co-ordinated Reset Therapy for tinnitus. The study funded by the corporation yielded promising results, but the British Tinnitus Association wants to see a larger, independently funded study:
Trials of the new therapy, called called Acoustic Coordinated Reset (ACR), have shown that it reduces the loudness and annoyance caused by tinnitus in seven out of 10 patients.
The treatment is now being made availabe to British patients at a Harley Street clinic…
The Tinnitus Clinic, based in Harley Street, is introducing the treatment, although it comes with a £4,500 price tag.
Josephine Swinhoe, managing director, said it was also funding a larger UK trial run by Nottingham University. It hoped to approach the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice) in the future “with the hope of making it more widely available”.
The British Tinnitus Association said the results were “encouraging” but said a larger, independent trial was needed.
