Cyclodextrins are simple yet powerful molecules widely used in medicinal formulations and industry for their ability to stabilize and solubilize guest compounds. However, recent evidence shows that 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HPβCD) causes severe hearing loss in mice, selectively killing outer hair cells (OHC) within 1 week of subcutaneous drug(More)
Endothelium-derived nitric oxide (NO) plays an important role in the regulation of vascular tone. Lack of NO bioavailability can result in cardiovascular disease. NO bioavailability is determined by its rates of generation and catabolism; however, it is not known how the NO catabolism rate is regulated in the vascular wall under normoxic, hypoxic, and(More)
Tullio phenomenon refers to eye movements induced by sound.(1) This unusual examination finding may be seen in superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD) syndrome.(2) This disorder is due to absent bone over the superior semicircular canal (figure). Patients complain of dizziness triggered by loud sound, aural fullness, autophony, and pulsatile tinnitus.(More)
Electron-transporting organic semiconductors (n-channel) for field-effect transistors (FETs) that are processable in common organic solvents or exhibit air-stable operation are rare. This investigation addresses both these challenges through rational molecular design and computational predictions of n-channel FET air-stability. A series of seven(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to describe the presentation and management of a rare site of cholesteatoma recurrence at the bony-cartilaginous junction after intact canal wall (ICW) mastoidectomy. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case series SETTING Tertiary referral center PATIENTS Patients with cholesteatoma formation arising from the(More)
