Once proved successful that this treatment can restore sensorineural hearing loss in babies will certainly be much preferable for parents to choose from rather than cochlear implants for their deaf babies. It'd be cheaper, too. This will be a new generation, folks. The time is now.
When we were looking into options for Lotte (including no CI and the whole family learning signlanguage) we came across this as well. But that's 8 years ago, and it was an option for the future...
Great to see that it has become reality..
Guess blood from the umbilical cord should from now on be saved by default. Could make a huge difference..
