Regarding Dr. Trager’s Hearing-Support Supplement

Q I am wondering why the product description for Dr. Trager’s formulation makes no specific reference to the potential treatment of tinnitus symptoms, when the patent application submitted (#20070248690) for this product cites three case examples, all clinically relating to tinnitus, and, presumably offering evidence of efficacy for this affliction. I would appreciate some feedback on this omission.
