San Diego-based Otonomy, which is developing treatments for Meniere’s disease, said today that it has raised $10M in a Series A financing round. The round came from Avalon Ventures. According to Otonomy, the funding will go towards supporting the ongoing clinical trial for its compound, to initiate IND studies for a second compound, and early-stage development of a third program. Otonomy is headed by Jay Lichter, who is also a managing director at Avalon Ventures. Otonomy’s first product is a sustained release formulation of steroid dexamethasone.

Mike: thanks to your web side I went to HEI of Los Angeles, for the DNA test and also I registered for the clinical trial OTO-104.
I didn’t qualified for the trial since my condition is apparently bilateral and they trial is only done for unilateral. Do you have any source of info for bilateral Meniere’s? If you don’t know right now, keep me in mind in case in the future some study appears for bilateral.
