OTO-104 for Meniere's Disease

2014-07-23 21:09:52 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of OTO-104 in subjects with unilateral Meniere's disease. The effectiveness of OTO-104 to reduce the symptoms of Meniere's disease will also be evaluated.


Meniere's disease is a debilitating disorder of the inner ear which includes symptoms such as vertigo, tinnitus, hearing loss and aural fullness. Meniere's disease may result from an imbalance of fluid in the inner ear. Several studies have shown that corticosteroids may help manage this imbalance yet the effect does not last very long. OTO-104 is a longer lasting corticosteroid which could provide significant benefit to patients with Meniere's disease.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Proteins found usually in the cytoplasm or nucleus that specifically bind steroid hormones and trigger changes influencing the behavior of cells. The steroid receptor-steroid hormone complex regulates the transcription of specific genes.

A 21-carbon steroid, derived from CHOLESTEROL and found in steroid hormone-producing tissues. Pregnenolone is the precursor to GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and the adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.

A 21-carbon steroid that is converted from PREGNENOLONE by STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE. It is an intermediate in the delta-5 pathway of biosynthesis of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and the adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.

Steroid hormones produced by the GONADS. They stimulate reproductive organs, germ cell maturation, and the secondary sex characteristics in the males and the females. The major sex steroid hormones include ESTRADIOL; PROGESTERONE; and TESTOSTERONE.

Enzymes that catalyze the transposition of double bond(s) in a steroid molecule. EC 5.3.3.
