Second, VEGF inhibition can lead to modest but relevant decreases in the volume of vestibular schwannomas. This effect is notable, given having less sensitivity of benign nervous-system tumors to standard cytotoxic chemotherapy. Third, in a few individuals, VEGF inhibition can result in a relatively fast improvement in hearing, as reflected by word-recognition scores, with sustained improvement for up to 16 months. Observational studies have shown that word-recognition ratings deteriorate over time in patients with vestibular schwannomas and that significant improvement is not anticipated.27 We posit that improvement is due to a reduction in intraneural edema, and also tumor shrinkage.‘We believe that FLEX Spas includes a unique opportunity to reach consumers, influencing health recognition and linkage to care.
