Free radical formation in the cochlea plays a key role in the development of noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). The amount, distribution, and time course of free radical formation have been defined, including a clinically significant formation of both reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species 7-10 days after noise exposure. Reduction in cochlear blood flow as a result of free radical formation has also been described. Here we report that the antioxidant agents vitamins A, C, and E… CONTINUE READING
