The results of Sensori’s clinical placebo study of the effects of Antinitus are now being published in the internationally renowned journal “The International Tinnitus Journal”.

The result for the group that were treated with Antinitus were significantly better than the results for the placebo group. The study also confirms that Antinitus is safe and without any risk of serious complications or side effects.
The placebo study is part of Antinitus’ clinical development programme. A study group consisting of 82 participants with tinnitus took part in the study during 2016/2017 with the purpose of comparing the clinical effect of the tinnitus patch Antinitus with placebo. The study was carried out by physicians at the Sickla ENT-centre in Stockholm and the Citysjukhuset hospital in Gothenburg. The treatment period was three weeks with a follow-up four weeks after the treatment was completed.
Result and conclusions of the study
