Parallel studies in mice and humans by Spanish and British scientists have found a new kind of genes -- micro RNAs -- are linked to progressive hearing loss. The researchers said their findings provide important new genetic understanding of a condition that's common in humans yet remains poorly understood. The Spanish scientists from the Hospital Ramon Cajal in Madrid followed families who showed hearing loss.
