Decibel Therapeutics to Present at the 44th Annual Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO) Conference

BOSTON, Feb. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Decibel Therapeutics (Nasdaq: DBTX), a clinical-stage biotechnology company dedicated to discovering and developing transformative treatments to restore and improve hearing and balance, announced today that it will present findings from its drug discovery and development programs at the 44th Annual MidWinter Meeting of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO), which will be held virtually February 20–24, 2021.

The Decibel team will have a total of eight podium and poster presentations during this year’s meeting. Several presentations will focus on DB-OTO, Decibel’s investigational gene therapy being developed to restore hearing in children with a deficiency in the otoferlin gene, and DB-ATO, a regenerative gene therapy program designed to restore balance in patients with bilateral vestibulopathy, or BVP, by regenerating lost hair cells within the vestibule.
