Welcome to TINNET: An Action for Better Understanding the Heterogeneity of Tinnitus to Improve and Develop New Treatments

TINNET Management Committee in Brussels, 19 January 2015


This is the first scientific paper that came out of the cooperation between the patient forum TinnitusHub (http://www.tinnitustalk.com) and researchers from TRI and TINNET.

Three large patient samples (total n= 9'600) have been compared: The database of the University Clinic Regensburg, the sample of the TrackYourTinnitus app and the results of a survey on TinnitusTalk. The paper showed significant differences between the three samples with respect to age, tinnitus duration and gender.

The result will guide future studies, improve data sampling and has an important impact on the interpretation of the study results.
