SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Spiral Therapeutics, Inc. (“Spiral”), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company leading the way in therapies for inner ear disorders, today announced a strategic partnership with the Vestibular Disorders Association (VeDA). This alliance aims to improve the lives of patients suffering from balance disorders like Meniere’s Disease through targeted outreach, collaborative patient education programs, and data-driven research.

“Joining forces with VeDA is a significant milestone for Spiral, as it aligns with our commitment to address the unmet medical needs in the field of inner ear disorders,” said Hugo Peris, CEO of Spiral Therapeutics. “We’re honored to support VeDA’s mission and excited about the opportunity to significantly improve patient lives.”

“VeDA is honored to partner with Spiral in our mutual effort to support Meniere’s patients on their journey back to balance,” said Cynthia Ryan, Executive Director of VeDA. “We’re excited about the potential their new treatment offers to improve the lives of people struggling with vertigo, hearing loss, and tinnitus.”

This collaboration grants Spiral access to VeDA’s Patient Registry on Meniere’s patients, enriching its ongoing research efforts. Additionally, VeDA will facilitate targeted outreach to Meniere’s clinicians and patients in the United States and Australia. Both organizations will also collaborate on educational programs to further patient understanding of treatment nuances such as the placebo effect.
