Unification of Treatments and Interventions for Tinnitus Patients - UNITI

Tinnitus special issue 01

A special issue on "Novel Treatments and Diagnosis for Chronic Tinnitus" is organised by UNITI members Dr. Winfried Schlee and Prof. Dr. Jose A. Lopez-Escamez. The challenge is to improve the diagnostic procedures of tinnitus and assign the appropriate treatment or combination of treatments to the individual tinnitus patient. With this Special Issue, we want to concentrate on innovative diagnostic procedures and novel treatment strategies that aim to improve the patient journey from diagnosis to the best-suited therapeutic approach for the individual patient. In this respect, research papers on individualized treatment decisions and decision support systems are also strongly encouraged. Original research papers and systematic reviews of high quality are welcome.

On the 15th of April, Prof. Myra Spiliopoulou (Professor at Magdeburg University) had the opportunity to present UNITI project at an event organised by the EU-Hochschulnetzwerk Sachsen-Anhalt and the Nationale Kontaktstelle Digitale und Industrielle Technologien (NKS DIT). During this event Myra presented the success story of UNITI stressing on the following key points: 

Interdisciplinarity, best-of-the-best in the team, common goal, great ambitions, everybody talks the same language, cooperations in place beforehand.

The full presentation is available here.

 

Uniti Logo 2019 4cThe world's largest tinnitus study UNITI, funded by the EU, will start soon. The study centers in Athens, Greece, Granada, Spain, Leuven, Belgium, Berlin and Regensburg, Germany, are therefore currently looking for patients between the ages of 18 and 80 with chronic tinnitus who would like to participate in a clinical trial to investigate the effectiveness of single or combination treatments for tinnitus.

In this context, the clinics in Berlin and Granada invite interested patients to take part in the so-called pre-screening, where it should be determined whether you are generally suitable for participation in the UNITI study.

On 2nd March, the UNITI team was grateful to convene again, and discuss all ongoing project processes and advancements of our action. It has already been the 5th edition of UNITI TV!

Currently, there is a variety of exciting developments, with large data analysis of scientific data on tinnitus (one pilar of the UNITI study) ongoing and showing first results, as well as busy preparations of the UNITI clinical trial, with pre-screening already started in some clinical centres, and initiated soon in the others. In case of enquiries concerning the status of our work, feel free to contact us!

Everyone is already happy for our next consortium update in a few months, UNITI TV no. 6!

This year's International Tinnitus Awareness Week #TinnitusWeek currently takes place, almost fully virtual, but with an even greater number of partners than ever before!
Under the motto #ThisIsMySilence, many organisations - most prominently the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) - and countless individuals worldwide share their experiences with tinnitus, and express what needs to be done from their point of view.

On our part, with our EU funded research, we aim at a Unification of Treatments and Interventions for Tinnitus Patients (UNITI). Currently, preparations for the UNITI tinnitus clinical trial - one of the largest ever - are in the later stages. Stay tuned for updates!
