Frequency Therapeutics' New Data Of Hearing Loss Candidate Fails To Impress Investors

·1 min read
  • Frequency Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ: FREQ) has announced that four additional sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) subjects from its FX-322-111 open-label study achieved statistically significant hearing improvements.

  • The patients were evaluated 8 to 12 months following initial dosing.

  • Including the five initial responders, a total of nine subjects in the study (n=32) have shown statistically significant improvements in word recognition scores, a key measure of speech perception, at time points between 90 days and one year.

  • Of the five subjects with a statistically significant response at day-90, the four who returned for evaluation had scores that remained above their baseline word recognition measures.

  • However, they were below the threshold for statistical significance.

  • FX-322 is Frequency's lead product candidate for the treatment of acquired SNHL.

  • FX-322 is designed to regenerate auditory sensory hair cells located in the inner ear's cochlea and potentially restore hearing in individuals with SNHL.
