Study Summary

This trial is testing a new drug for Meniere's disease, a disorder of the inner ear. The trial is comparing the drug to a placebo, and is double-blind (neither the subjects nor the researchers know who is receiving the drug or the placebo). Ebselen is used to treat the condition known as vertigo, which is a type of dizziness that is caused by specific changes in head position.
