To maximize the global potential of information technology and information systems, researchers, practitioners, teachers and students must have access to the most(More)
Sensorineural hearing loss is found in many inherited forms of muscular dystrophy. We investigated the dy mouse model, which has congenital muscular dystrophy due to a defect in laminin alpha 2, for evidence of cochlear dysfunction. Auditory brainstem response (ABR) audiometry to pure tones was used to evaluate 3-month-old homozygous dy/dy and age-matched(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Sensorineural hearing loss has been found in association with inherited muscular dystrophies in humans and in mouse models. An increased brainstem auditory evoked response threshold has been previously reported in the dystrophin-deficient mdx mouse model for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, suggesting that full-length dystrophin (Dp427) is(More)
