Tinnitus Has No Effective Treatment and Is Experienced by Up To 15% Of Patients Recovering From COVID-19 Infection
JUPITER, FL / October 6, 2022 – Jupiter Wellness, Inc. (Nasdaq: JUPW), a wellness company focused on hair loss, eczema, burns, and sexual wellness announced today the initiation of a triple-blinded clinical study evaluating a possible treatment for tinnitus. To date, no effective treatment exists for tinnitus.
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the causative viral pathogen leading to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, after three successive waves of the pandemic, much of the human population has been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. During the two years since the pandemic ensued, multiple reports emerged of patients experiencing COVID-19 emergent symptoms lasting longer than 4 weeks since onset. Up to 15% of patients recovering from COVID-19 experience post-acute COVID-19 induced tinnitus.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Jupiter Wellness scientists discovered a novel pathway for the treatment of COVID-19 induced tinnitus and possibly subjective tinnitus. The discovery led to a patent recently filed by Jupiter Wellness for the use of dopamine receptor modulation for the treatment of tinnitus.
The Company has just launched a study to investigate if dopamine receptor modulation can be used effectively to treat COVID-19 induced tinnitus (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT05507372).
Dr. Glynn Wilson, Chief Scientific Officer said, “We are very excited about this development and the potential to bring relief to millions of people suffering from this condition.”
