and New York
Somatosensory Tinnitus RCT
The purpose of this study is to learn more about a type of tinnitus (ringing in the ears) known as "somatosensory tinnitus." This type of tinnitus is suspected when the tinnitus perception changes following head and/or neck movements. This study is also exploring a possible way to treat somatosensory tinnitus.

An fMRI Investigation of the Effects of IV Lidocaine on Tinnitus
This is an exploratory pilot open-label study to identify the signal changes on fMRI of patients with tinnitus and with temporary suppression of the tinnitus with IV lidocaine. Patients will include those with hearing loss (both unilateral and bilateral) and tinnitus, subjects with normal hearing and tinnitus, and control subjects with normal hearing and no tinnitus. Eligible subjects will have functional and subjective data collected at baseline, receive an IV lidocaine infusion, and have funct... Read More

Neurobiological Similarities of Tinnitus and PTSD
Psychiatric distress caused by PTSD may increase attention toward tinnitus, as well as perceived loudness and discomfort. It is important to understand how tinnitus-related distress and PTSD negatively interact together, in order to develop more effective therapeutic approaches. Understanding symptoms and neurobiological mechanisms using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), can lead to the necessary knowledge to develop effective interventions for individuals who suffer from both condit...

The Efficacy of Incobotulinum Toxin A Injections for Treatment of Tinnitus: a Randomized Controlled Trial
Tinnitus is a persistent non-physiologic, non-psychiatric, ringing in the ear that affects up to 20% of the general US population. The purpose of this study is to assess the patient reported effectiveness of Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) injections into the auricular muscles for relief of tinnitus with use of the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory questionnaire.

Acoustic and Electrical Stimulation for the Treatment of Tinnitus
Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, affects 10% to 30% of the population. Of those, 20% have tinnitus bothersome enough to seek medical attention. In many people, tinnitus can significantly affect the quality of life. At this point in time, there is no effective treatment or cure available for tinnitus.
It has been found that electrical stimulation of the inner ear can reduce and in some cases eliminate tinnitus. The purpose of this research is to investigate both acoustic and electrical stimulat... Read More

Treatment of Tinnitus With Migraine Medications
Tinnitus represents one of the most common and distressing otologic problems, and it causes various somatic and psychological disorders that interfere with the quality of life. It is well-understood that many factors, such as poor education, lower income, or occupational, and recreational activity associated with high noise exposure, influences the prevalence and risk of tinnitus. Although the economic and emotional impact of tinnitus is large, there is currently no FDA-approved medication to tr... Read More
