Neuromod raises $6.2m in Series A

Neuromod said today it raised $6.2 million (EU€5.5 million) in a Series A round of financing, with fund slated to support its mutebutton bi-modal neuromodulation device for patients with chronic tinnitus. Funds from the round came from venture capital firm Fountain Healthcare Partners, the Dublin-based company said. “Neuromod is delighted to announce this investment, which will help us to advance our unique chronic tinnitus treatment technology. As an emerging company we welcome the support and knowledge offered to us from partnering with an experienced international life sciences venture capital fund such as Fountain Healthcare Partners. We are also particularly grateful for the ongoing support we have received from our manufacturing partners, M&M Qualtech and Molex, and from Enterprise Ireland, which enable innovative Irish companies, like Neuromod, to grow and succeed on the international stage,” CEO Dr Ross O’Neill said in prepared remarks. The mutebutton is a handheld bi-modal neuromodulation device device that helps the brain distinguish between real and phantom noises through audio and tongue stimulation. The system promotes neur0plasticity in areas of the brain associated with tinnitus, the company said. “Neuromod is an exciting company, with the potential to offer a superior treatment to and improve the quality of life of the millions of patients suffering with chronic tinnitus. The company has a proprietary neuromodulation tech...

Authors: Crincoli V, Anelli MG, Quercia E, Piancino MG, Di Comite M Abstract Aims: Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) represent a heterogeneous group of inflammatory or degenerative diseases of the stomatognatic system, with algic and/or dysfunctional clinical features involving temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and related masticatory muscles. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune polyarthritis characterized by the chronic inflammation of synovial joints and oral implications such as hyposalivation, difficulty in swallowing and phoning, feeling of burning mouth, increased thirst, loss of taste or unpleasant taste ...

Conclusions Neurotologic complications are a significant risk when performing MVD. It is important for otolaryngologists as well as neurosurgeons to be aware of such complications. We recommend perioperative audiometry in all patients undergoing MVD and believe there is utility in routine otolaryngologist involvement.

Authors: Hölzl M, Behrmann R, Biesinger E, von Heymann W, Hülse R, Goessler UR, Arens C Abstract This paper discusses otorhinolaryngological symptoms associated with functional disorders of the upper cervical spine. Hints aimed to avoid misdiagnoses of cross-organ otorhinolaryngological symptoms as phobic or psychogenic disorders are presented. Clinically relevant neuroanatomical convergence of the upper cervical spine (occiput to C3) is fundamental for the interpretation of functional otorhinolaryngological symptoms. Based thereon, evidence for the most common cervical differential diagnoses of dizziness...

Conclusions: Currently, the literature is inconclusive regarding the interaction between PDE-5 inhibitor use and ototoxicity. Future study such as a double-blinded placebo controlled randomized trial with audiometric assessment would provide more sound evidence. Similarly, a unified molecular model is necessary.

Objective: Acute low-frequency hearing loss (ALHL) is typically treated with combination therapy, including steroids and diuretics. To avoid unnecessary use of steroids we proposed a method of sequential administration using these two drugs, and compared the efficacy of our protocol with that of existing combination treatments. Methods: A prospective, randomized, open-label, single-blind, noninferiority clinical trial was conducted to investigate whether the effectiveness of sequential treatment is noninferior to that of combination treatment for ALHL. Ninety-two patients with ALHL received either steroids and diureti...

AbstractTinnitus is defined as perception of sound in ear continuously without presence of any external stimuli. It is mainly due to the activity within central nervous system without any mechanical or vibratory activity that stimulates the cochlea. It is purely subjective phenomenon that cannot be measured by the any physical scale. Tinnitus handicap inventory is very useful tool to measure the severity of impact of tinnitus on person ’s life. There is lack of questionnaire in Hindi and this work will help a lot in future. The English THI was translated to Hindi by person expert in both English and Hindi. The transl...

AbstractTinnitus is often in comorbidity with anxiety and depression, and several authors have proposed a reduced efficiency of the top-down executive control in its perception. This single-group study describes a novel application of the metacognitive therapy (MCT), which works on a top-down engagement of proactive attentional control mechanisms on a group of patients with tinnitus, to see its impact on the perception of tinnitus and its anxiety and depression correlates. Eight metacognitive therapy group-sessions were proposed to a group of nine patients, as part of a regional project conducted at the University General ...
