Role of antioxidants in prevention of age-related hearing loss: a review of literature

Age-related hearing loss (ARHL), also known as presbycusis, is one of the most prevalent chronic degenerative conditions. It is characterized by a decline in auditory function. ARHL is caused by the

Protective Effects of Silymarin Against Age-Related Hearing Loss in an Aging Rat Model

It is indicated that silymarin with doses of 100 and 200 mg/kg/day has protective effect against ARHL and it can be supplemented into the diet of older people to slow down the progression of age-related hearing loss.

Effect of statin on age-related hearing loss via drug repurposing.

Role of melatonin in prevention of age-related hearing loss

The use of melatonin has otoprotective effects on HCD in the ARHL process in the C57BL/6J model, and the MG maintained higher DPOAE values than the CG at all frequencies tested.

A High-Fat Diet Delays Age-Related Hearing Loss Progression in C57BL/6J Mice

It is suggested that HFD delays AHL progression in the C57B/6J mice, and the elevation in ABR thresholds and SGC loss associated with aging in the HFD-fed C57BL/ 6J mice were significantly suppressed compared with those in the normal diet-fed mice.

An Oral Combination of Vitamins A, C, E, and Mg++ Improves Auditory Thresholds in Age-Related Hearing Loss

Findings indicate that oral ACEMg may provide an effective adjuvant therapeutic intervention for the treatment of ARHL, delaying the progression of hearing impairment associated with age.

Synergistic effects of free radical scavengers and cochlear vasodilators: a new otoprotective strategy for age-related hearing loss

In this review, the synergistic effects of combinations of antioxidant free radicals scavengers and cochlear vasodilators will be discussed as a feasible therapeutic approach for the treatment of ARHL.



Effects of Dietary Restriction and Antioxidants on Presbyacusis

Experiments provide compelling evidence that long‐term treatment with compounds that block or scavenge reactive oxygen metabolites attenuate age‐related hearing loss and reduce the impact of associated deleterious changes at the molecular level.

The effects of L-carnitine on presbyacusis in the rat model.

Reactive oxygen metabolites are products of oxidative metabolism that are continuously generated in vivo, and are known to produce serious cellular, tissue and genomic damage. l-carnitine is an

Effects of Folic Acid Supplementation on Hearing in Older Adults

Folic acid supplementation seemed to slow the decline of low-frequency hearing in folate-deficient, older adults and investigate whether folic Acid supplementation retards atherosclerotic progression.

Radical scavengers for elderly patients with age-related hearing loss

Conclusion. The results of this study suggest that treatment with radical scavengers has the potential to become an effective new therapy for age-related hearing loss. Objective. To assess the

Age-related hearing loss, vitamin B-12, and folate in elderly women.

Poor vitamin B-12 and folate status may be associated with age-related auditory dysfunction, and hearing function was determined by the average of pure-tone air conduction thresholds.

Nitric oxide synthase inhibitor reduces noise-induced cochlear damage in guinea pigs

Conclusion. The results obtained in this study indicate that NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) protects cochlear damage from acoustic trauma through reducing the production of nitric oxide

Age-Related Hearing Impairment and B Vitamin Status

This investigation fails to demonstrate any association between hearing level and vitamin B12 or folic acid in elderly subjects and no association between B12 and the speech recognition score could be found.

Spiral Ligament Pathology: A Major Aspect of Age-Related Cochlear Degeneration in C57BL/6 Mice

Data from systematic, light microscopic examination of cochlear histopathology in an age-graded series of C57BL/6 mice were compared with threshold elevations to elucidate the functionally important structural changes underlying age-related hearing loss in this inbred strain.
