NCT ID: NCT02853812 Active, not recruiting - Tinnitus Clinical Trials

Tinnitus Related Cerebral Activities

Start date: March 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The proposed research is to identify the brain areas activated or deactivated by tinnitus in humans. The identification of these areas is expected to be able to treat tinnitus refractory to traditional therapies by methods of brain stimulation. Furthermore, this technique would be very useful to verify the effectiveness of any treatment to relieve tinnitus. The brain activation measured during fMRI will be performed in a position of rest, after inhibition of tinnitus, and after application of a sound that does not inhibit tinnitus. This comparison will identify specific brain areas activated or deactivated by tinnitus.

NCT ID: NCT02850055 Recruiting - Tinnitus Clinical Trials

Effectiveness of Manual Therapy in Patients With Tinnitus and Temporomandibular Joint Disorder.

Start date: January 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Tinnitus is one of the most prevalent symptoms that causes more disability in patients with temporomandibular disorder (TMD). The present study postulates a possible link between temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and inner ear based on their anatomical, biomechanical and physiological relationship, proposing a physiotherapy treatment for the temporomandibular joint to improve tinnitus. The aim of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of adding specific manual therapy to a multimodal physiotherapy treatment in patients with tinnitus and temporomandibular disorder.

Treating Tinnitus Using the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment Program: A Randomized, Double-blind Study

Start date: April 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The most current data indicate that tinnitus and hearing impairment are the Number 1 and 2 disabilities associated with service in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. Tinnitus can result from exposure to continuous noise from vehicles, generators, and other equipment, and from blast, or impulse noise from friendly-or opposing-forces weapon systems. Thus, tinnitus caused by both long-term noise exposure and acute acoustic trauma is an obstacle to be overcome in return-to-duty decisions and represents a serious liability to the retention of a healthy and fit force. Until recently, there has been no treatment that has been clinically validated as consistently effective. The development of the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment sought to overcome the practical limitations of previously available approaches (e.g. tinnitus maskers and biofeedback). While these studies have demonstrated the efficacy of the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment over alternative therapies, these trials studied target populations that may not be representative of the typical Soldier experiencing tinnitus. One hundred and twenty (120) Soldiers or veterans with debilitating tinnitus will be recruited and divided into groups treated with two treatments, the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment Program which includes the use of the Neuromonics Oasis™ treatment device and a similarly-treated device using a placebo treatment. The study uses a randomized, double-blind design. The effectiveness of the treatments will be assessed using standard audiometric procedures and tinnitus subjective questionnaires. This study will allow the Office of the Surgeon General of the Army to provide direction regarding the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment Program (NTTP) for alleviation of debilitating tinnitus that adversely affects Soldier deployability and operational performance. Retention of a fit force and improved quality of life for active-duty Soldiers are important issues associated with a successful approach to the treatment of tinnitus.

Tinnitus Suppression for Cochlear Implant Recipients

Start date: October 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of an external sound. Prevalence in the general population is 10 to 15%, with tinnitus severely impacting quality of life in 1-2 percent of the population. Tinnitus therapy is based on counselling, cognitive and behavioural therapies in combination with sound therapies which mostly rely on masking. For cochlear implant candidates, the ability to use hearing aids and maskers is limited by the degree of their hearing loss. Reports of tinnitus prevalence in this group range from 67 to 100% with a mean of 80%. In cochlear implant (CI) recipients, tinnitus suppression primarily occurs during active use of the cochlear implant system. In some CI recipients residual inhibition of tinnitus occurs when the implant is switched off. While the benefits of CI implantation on tinnitus are well documented, there is a group of recipients where tinnitus remains a concern in the implanted ear post-operatively. The primary aim of this study is to investigate the benefits of using tinnitus masking via a CI sound processor that optimises tinnitus suppression with minimal annoyance to the user. Furthermore a questionnaire will be employed to capture the prevalence, degree and nature of tinnitus in recipients.

NCT ID: NCT02774122 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Tinnitus, Subjective

Cochleural Alternating Acoustic Beam Therapy (CAABT) Versus Masking Intervention for Tinnitus

Start date: April 2016
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This study is to compare the effectiveness of CAABT and masking therapy in the management of subjective tinnitus in adults.Half of participants will receive CAABT, while the other half will receive masking therapy.

NCT ID: NCT02772536 Recruiting - Tinnitus Clinical Trials

A Clinical Trial Investigating Effect of Tinted Light on Perception of Tinnitus

Start date: March 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Background An earlier pilot study provided evidence that about 40% of tinnitus sufferers reported that viewing particular tints of light appeared to result in some improvement of their tinnitus. This ameliorative effect appeared to be primarily acute and only reported to occur whilst viewing the tint. Individual patients would choose differing tints with some identifying more than one tint that affected their tinnitus. Aim of the Study In this current basic science study, the aim is to provide preliminary data to return estimates of the efficacy of using tinted light to ameliorate tinnitus. After identification of responders during screening, responders are invited to attend three further trial sessions, where their tinnitus is assessed in response to three luminance conditions: Low Ambient Light; Tint of Light affecting Tinnitus; White Light. The response to low ambient light serves as a control to compare the effect of tinted light against and the response to white light serves as an 'active' stimulus comparator. These results will then establish whether tinted light provides patients with a useful improvement in their tinnitus compared with measures of their baseline tinnitus obtained in the dark and against a standardised white light stimulus. They will also inform further development of the technique as a potential treatment for tinnitus in responsive patients. Over the three sessions, the averaged responses given by the patient under each stimulus condition will be analysed to provide a measure of efficacy.

NCT ID: NCT02737670 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Tinnitus, Subjective

Sulodexide Efficacy in Chronic Idiopathic Subjective Tinnitus

Start date: August 2015
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

The objective of this prospective randomized and double blind controlled study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Sulodexide (25 mg) in the treatment of chronic idiopathic subjective tinnitus.

NCT ID: NCT02734576 Recruiting - Tinnitus Clinical Trials

Venous Sinus Stenting To Treat Intractable Pulsatile Tinnitus Caused By Venous Sinus Stenosis

Start date: May 2016
Phase: Phase 1
Study type: Interventional

There have been few published studies that examine the efficacy and safety of endovascular treatments on patients with pulsatile tinnitus with venous stenosis. Despite the limited experience with venous sinus stenting to treat pulsatile tinnitus, preliminary results show that venous sinus stenting could represent a viable alternative for refractory pulsatile tinnitus patients with venous sinus stenosis. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of this procedure in a controlled fashion, using strict inclusion and exclusion criteria, and long-term clinical and imaging follow-up. The investigators hope to provide robust data regarding the safety and efficacy of venous sinus stenting for patients with pulsatile tinnitus.
