Tinnitus: How a biobank could be ‘life-changing’ for people with ear disorders

IHU Covid variant: the symptom emerging in the first cases of the heavily ‘mutated’ strain Heart disease: a risk factor responsible for 64 percent of deaths

The BTA has cost £4 million to set up a tinnitus biobank, which is 0.53 per cent of the £750 million the health service spends annually on treating people with the condition.

They also believe that several thousand people living with tinnitus must participate in the biobank for it to be a viable success.

Asked about a timeline for when a biobank could start producing results, Mr Stockdale said he would be “certainly hopeful that once the biobank collects data” we would see results “within three to five years”.

He added: “Ultimately, the big goal is to try to find some sort of objective measure or biomarker of tinnitus, and then those kinds of results can be used to drive research from biocenters to find cures.”
