ABSTRACT
Deafness is the most common form of sensory impairment in
humans. Depending on the age of onset, hearing impairment can affect
oral language acquisition, cognitive development and psychosocial
development /1/. Here, we cover the latest advances in gene therapy
for alleviating or preventing hearing loss. This review is not meant to
be comprehensive, but to highlight some of the most recent develop-
ments in the field. Several recent reviews have described potential
therapeutic approaches /2-4/.
