Latest Nonsyndromic deafness Stories
Genetic testing for a certain mutation in pediatric patients is valuable in determining a cause for unexplained hearing loss.
A team of researchers has reportedly discovered a new genetic mutation that leads to deafness and hearing loss associated with a relatively rare condition.
The sound of a horn beeping at you while driving, the chirping crickets after a huge rain storm, and your favorite new One Direction song -- imagine going through life not being able to hear any of it.
A new gene therapy approach can reverse hearing loss caused by a genetic defect in a mouse model of congenital deafness.
Precise diagnosis of disease and developmental syndromes often depends on understanding the genetics underlying them.
Excessive noise is not the only thing that causes damage to hearing.
Pinpointing the exact genetic cause of inherited deafness has always involved sequencing one gene at a time, a process that can take up to a year and cost roughly $1,000 per gene.
Mimicking hereditary deafness in a mouse brings doctors closer to a cure.
A gene associated with a rare form of progressive deafness in males has been identified by an international team of researchers funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
