British scientists find potential deafness cure

British scientists believe profound deafness caused by nerve damage could one day be cured by human stem cells.
They have successfully experimented on animals, partially restoring their hearing.
The process involves implanting human stem cells into the ear, replacing nerve endings which are missing or damaged.
