Abstract

International Tinnitus Forum, Twenty-Third Annual Meeting: Translational Research in Tinnitus Therapy

Author(s): Abraham Shulman

The Twenty-Third Annual Meeting of the International Tinnitus Forum (ITF), titled "Translational Research in Tinnitus Therapy," was concluded in Los Angeles on September 24, 2005. The goal of the meeting was to present to the attendees a take-home awareness of state-of-the-art methods for introducing into clinical practice basic "bench" science advances. These advances include improved accuracy of tinnitus diagnosis, increased efficacy of existing means of therapy, and new modalities attempting tinnitus relief. The theme of the meeting was translational medicine and tinnitus: how basic science advances are integrated and adapted into clinical medicine for workable applications to benefit tinnitus patients.
