Mass. Eye and Ear aims to test abortion drug as treatment for brain tumor
Massachusetts Eye and Ear researchers hope to launch mid-stage trials of a drug commonly used to induce chemical abortion, called mifepristone, to treat a rare type of brain tumor. Researchers had been looking for a drug to treat the growth of a potentially lethal brain tumor called vestibular schwannoma. The cancer usually causes hearing loss and tinnitus, but can also cause dizziness and facial nerve paralysis. Because of where such tumors grow – often on the vestibular, or balance, nerve —… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Biotechnology headlines)

Mifepristone may halt growth of intracranial tumor that causes hearing loss
(Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary) Massachusetts Eye and Ear researchers have shown that mifepristone, a drug currently FDA-approved for chemical abortion, prevents the growth of vestibular schwannoma (also known as acoustic neuroma) cells. This sometimes-lethal intracranial tumor typically causes hearing loss and tinnitus. The findings, published online today in Scientific Reports, suggest that mifepristone is a promising drug candidate to be repositioned for the treatment of these tumors.

BOSTON (CBS) – It is estimated that 1 in 5 people suffer from tinnitus, a ringing or buzzing in the ear, that can be so intrusive it can affect a person’s quality of life.
