  • The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the clinical activity of two OTO-104 doses relative to placebo. Change in baseline for vertigo frequency will be evaluated with descriptive statistics. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  • The impact of tinnitus on activities of daily living will be measured. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  • Hearing loss in the affected ear will be measured by audiometric examination. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  • Quality of life will be measured by patient reported questionnaire. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  • Severity of vertigo episodes will be measured by the patient reported vertigo score. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

OTO-104 for Meniere's Disease
A Prospective, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Multicenter, Phase 1B Study of OTO-104 Given as a Single Intratympanic Injection in Subjects With Unilateral Meniere's Disease
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of OTO-104 in subjects with unilateral Meniere's disease. The effectiveness of OTO-104 to reduce the symptoms of Meniere's disease will also be evaluated.
Meniere's disease is a debilitating disorder of the inner ear which includes symptoms such as vertigo, tinnitus, hearing loss and aural fullness. Meniere's disease may result from an imbalance of fluid in the inner ear. Several studies have shown that corticosteroids may help manage this imbalance yet the effect does not last very long. OTO-104 is a longer lasting corticosteroid which could provide significant benefit to patients with Meniere's disease.
Phase 1
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Meniere's Disease
  • Drug: OTO-104 (steroid) 3 mg
    OTO-104 3 mg dose cohort, single intratympanic injection.
  • Drug: Placebo
    Placebo arm will be conducted in parallel with each OTO-104 dose cohort.
  • Drug: OTO-104 (steroid) 12 mg
    Sequential dose cohort escalation to OTO-104 12 mg dose cohort will occur pending the safety evaluation of 28 day follow up safety data for the OTO-104 3 mg dose cohort. OTO-104 12mg dose cohort is also a single intratympanic injection.
  • Experimental: OTO-104 (steroid) 3 mg
    Intervention: Drug: OTO-104 (steroid) 3 mg
  • Placebo Comparator: Placebo
    Intervention: Drug: Placebo
  • Experimental: OTO-104 (steroid) 12 mg
    The start of 12 mg dose cohort is contingent on safety data from 3 mg dose cohort.
    Intervention: Drug: OTO-104 (steroid) 12 mg
