Thanks for sharing Michele...very interesting work.

I wonder if it works the same with post radiation hearing loss.

"As one of the most commonly prescribed drugs for hypertension, the safety and low cost of losartan warrants rapid translation of our research to patients with vestibular schwannomas to try to prevent tumor-induced sensorineural hearing loss,"

Hi Stella! I wonder..though I have not had a lot of hearing loss (mine super gradual 3 years still). It is an interesting prospect though. Hope you are well!
