Audiologic testing and molecular analysis of 12S rRNA in patients receiving aminoglycosides.


BACKGROUND Pathogenic mutations in the mitochondrial genome are associated with a wide variety of maternally inherited human diseases including sensorineural hearing loss (HL). A specific mutation, m.1555A>G in the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene, is associated with predisposition to aminoglycoside ototoxicity and HL. Mutation screening in this gene has been… (More)
