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.
