Petit and her team at Institute Pasteur have partially restored inner ear function and removed almost completely the balance defect in a mouse model of USH1G by viral transfer of the wild-type cDNA to the inner ear of mutant mice shortly after birth. The results provide a basis for future clinical trials in humans.
