: This study identifies the prevalence and risk factors of sensorineural hearing loss and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG).: Patients aged 19 years or older who had undergone both ophthalmologic examination and audiometry as part of the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey V (2010-2012) were analyzed. Hearing loss was defined as the pure-tone average over 40 decibels based on the automatic hearing test to determine the threshold of airway hearing for each frequency. We investigated the prevalence of glaucoma and hearing loss when they occurred alone or simultaneously. The risk factors for concurrent glaucoma and hearing loss were examined.: Among the participants, 6.6% had hearing loss alone, 2.3% had glaucoma alone, and 0.5% had both glaucoma and hearing loss. The weighted prevalence of glaucoma in patients with hearing loss was 7.5%; however, the weighted prevalence of glaucoma was 3.2% among patients without hearing loss, with a significant difference (P <0.001). Multivariable logistic regression analysis revealed that the risk factors associated with concurrent glaucoma and hearing loss were age (3.786 times per 10 years, P <0.001) and triglyceride level (1.002 times per 1 mg/dL, P = 0.028).: Sensorineural hearing loss and POAG are relevant. If hearing impairment and visual impairment occur together, the quality of life of the patient is worsened and the social burden is greater. Therefore, care should be taken when treating elderly patients with glaucoma.

This is a phase 1/2 single dose study of FX-322 compared to placebo in male and female adults otherwise healthy with stable sensorineural hearing loss.
This is a phase 2a single and repeat dose exploratory efficacy study of intratympanic FX-322 compared to placebo in healthy male and female adults with stable sensorineural hearing loss.
The primary objective of the trial is the confirmation of the efficacy of AM-111 in the recovery of severe to profound idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL).
The purpose of the study is to determine whether AM-111 is effective in the treatment of acute inner ear hearing loss (acute sensorineural hearing loss, ASNHL).
Hearing loss due to damage or impairment of both the conductive elements (HEARING LOSS, CONDUCTIVE) and the sensorineural elements (HEARING LOSS, SENSORINEURAL) of the ear.
