A team of researchers from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communications Disorders (NIDCD) in the US has been claiming that people who are born with no sense of smell now need not to worry, according to a new report.
It is being affirmed by the team that it has successfully restored this sense in a group of mice during a trial. And soon, humans would be seen using the pioneering technique that helps them bring back their aromas.
As per the findings published online in Mature Medicine, mice were first bred to grab the human genetic disorder named congenital anosmia. Following the same, the problem was reversed using the new technique that re-grows cells’ parts dubbed cilia.
Cilia obtrude from the cells’ surfaces. It has been told that these cilia are necessary for olfactory function and absence of these may lead to olfactory dysfunction. The same may further cause sensory defects such as blindness or hearing loss or loss of smell. Also, a mutation in IFT88, a protein, may also cause human cilio conditions.
Thus, Director, Dr. James Battey affirmed, 'These results could lead to one of the first therapeutic options for treating people with congenital anosmia’.
