About 15 percent of children in the U.S. also suffer from low-frequency or high-frequency hearing loss that can impact the child's speech, language, and social development and can increase their risk of developing learning disabilities, according to Dr. Fakhri.
"We share Dr. Fakhri's and Dr. Baumgartner's passion and commitment to understanding more about the potential applications of cord blood to help repair nerve tissue," said Heather Brown, vice president of scientific and medical affairs at CBR.

"There are a number of treatments for hearing loss, but most of them rely on amplification of noises, not reversal of the hearing loss," said Dr. Samer Fakhri, associate professor and program director in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, and principal investigator of the study.

Fakhri said it's still too early to determine whether the procedure benefitted Madeleine, or may be beneficial for other children.
...
"If there's any improvement, it should be detected within six months to a year," Fakhri said. "We can't determine from just one child if there's an overall benefit." If the study results show significant improvement overall among the collective children studied, children with acquired -- not genetic -- hearing loss, may be able to benefit from the procedure. "We do not recommend that stem cells at this point now should be a treatment modality for hearing loss," Fakhri said. Previous studies in mice suggest long-term hearing repair after stem cell infusion. Fakhri says it's likely that if the procedure works, children like Madeleine will have long-term restored hearing.
...
"The way the stem cells work is they support repair," said Fakhri.
