Damage to the auditory neurons of the inner ear can lead to hearing loss. Rinri’s first product, Rincell-1, is designed to regenerate these damaged auditory neurons in the inner ears of patients.
Our pre-clinical research clearly demonstrates that Rincell-1 can produce new specialised cells, called auditory neurons, in the inner ear. This enables neural connections to be re-established between the ear and the brain. In models of hearing loss caused by damaged auditory neurons, Rincell-1 results in a reversal of hearing loss and a 40% improvement in hearing tests in a laboratory setting.
