A family from Llandudno is hoping to raise money and awareness in memory of their father, who died after suffering with chronic tinnitus. They've set up a page for donations, and say they want further support for charities like the British Tinnitus Association. Currently there is no single treatment for the condition, and research to find a cure is ongoing. According to the charity Action on Hearing Loss, many people are not troubled by tinnitus, noticing it only at quiet times.
According to an article published in the May 7, 2015 edition of IOP Science’s journal Biofabrication, a team of researchers from several universities in Europe have created tiny, complex scaffolds that replicate the intricate network of collagen fibers that form the human eardrum.
As explained in the article, the eardrum, or tympanic membrane (TM), is a thin, flexible membrane that separates the external ear from the middle ear.
It is quite common for the eardrum to become perforated through infection or physical damage, which can lead to temporary hearing loss.

Over the years, researchers have investigated several different techniques to repair or replace the eardrum using a patient’s own tissue (an autograft) or tissue taken from a donor (a homograft), but the optimal replacement has yet to be found, say the study authors. Journal Reference: Carlos Mota, Serena Danti, Delfo D’Alessandro, Luisa Trombi, Claudio Ricci, Dario Puppi, Dinuccio Dinucci, Mario Milazzo, Cesare Stefanini, Federica Chiellini, Lorenzo Moroni, Stefano Berrettini. The researchers hope that these scaffolds can be used to replace eardrums when they become severely damaged, reducing the need for patients to have their own tissue used in reconstruction surgery.
The eardrum is composed of collagen fibers that are precisely aligned in a complex network to enable sound waves to be transmitted to the ear ossicles — three tiny bones in the ear. Most minor damage to the eardrum can heal on its own; however, more severe damage requires a type of surgery to repair the eardrum known as myringoplasty. In this study, the researchers explored a tissue engineering approach whereby they created polymer scaffolds on which cells could be grown. According to the article, for the first approach the scaffolds were created by electrospinning (ES) in which fine fibers of polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) were drawn out from a liquid using an electrical charge to create a one dimensional structure.

Once created, a preliminary biological study was conducted by culturing human mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) onto the scaffolds to test how cells could grow and then survive on the structures.

The scaffolds were reportedly composed of two copolymers that are FDA-approved for biomedical use. According to the study authors, the cells were viable when grown on all of the scaffolds, with particularly good results seen on the 3D scaffold.
