Tinnitus is a frequent disorder and there is yet no reliable treatment for it. Many different treatment options have been investigated but most trials provided inconclusive results with some patients responding and many others without any benefit. These results suggest that there exist different forms of tinnitus which differ in their pathophysiology and their response to specific treatments. A challenge for tinnitus treatment and tinnitus research is therefore the identification of the most promising therapy for the individual patient. One approach to address this challenge is the systematic assessment of tinnitus patients in many clinical centers with standardized instruments. With the ESIT project a large team works together in order to create large standardized database for tinnitus and identify the most promising treatment option for the individual.
