Presbycusis, or age-related hearing loss is a growing problem as the general population ages. In this longitudinal study, the influence of noise or styrene exposure on presbycusis was investigated in Brown Norway rats. Animals were exposed at 6 months of age, either to a band noise centered at 8 kHz at a Lex,8h = 85 dB (86.2 dB SPL for 6 h), or to 300 ppm of styrene for 6 h per day, five days per week, for four weeks. Cubic distortion product otoacoustic emissions (2f1-f2 DPOAEs) were used to… Expand
Occupational noise and age: A longitudinal study of hearing sensitivity as a function of noise exposure and age in South African gold mine workers
TLDR
Age and occupational noise exposure influence hearing thresholds over time and the continued increase in hearing thresholds of the NEG above that of theNNEG can be related to ineffective noise management programmes and/or the fact that early noise exposure leads to a higher burden of hearing loss over time – even after noise exposure had stopped. Expand
Continuous exposure to low‐frequency noise and carbon disulfide: Combined effects on hearing
TLDR
Since maximum hearing sensitivity is located around 8 kHz in rats, low‐frequency noise exposure can affect the cochlear regions detecting mid‐range frequencies, and carbon disulfide should be considered as a key parameter in hearing conservation régulations. Expand

Noise-induced hearing loss can be examined using the model of the junction of environmental effects on the genome and its subsequent expression in phenotype. Individual human susceptibility to noiseExpand
Occupational Styrene Exposure on Auditory Function Among Adults: A Systematic Review of Selected Workers
TLDR
Results range from no to mild associations between styrene exposure and auditory dysfunction, noting relatively small sample sizes, and public health professionals and policy makers should be made aware of the future research needs pertaining to hearing impairment and ototoxicity from styrene. Expand
Noise-induced hearing loss: an occupational medicine perspective
TLDR
Noise prevention programs are paramount in reducing hearing loss as a result of occupational exposures, and trials are currently underway evaluating the role of antioxidants in protection from, and even reversal of, NIHL. Expand
Temporary and Permanent Noise-induced Threshold Shifts: A Review of Basic and Clinical Observations
TLDR
Exposure to intense sound can produce temporary (TTS) and permanent (PTS) threshold shifts, acute changes in hearing sensitivity that recover over time, or PTS, a loss that does not recover to preexposure levels. Expand
Chemical exposure and hearing loss.
TLDR
Evidence is shared indicating that noise is not the only source of work-related hearing damage and to draw greater attention to the matter of chemically induced hearing loss to provide occupational physicians and other health professionals with a clear picture of what is known about how chemical substances may affect hearing ability in the general population. Expand
Styrene enhances the noise induced oxidative stress in the cochlea and affects differently mechanosensory and supporting cells.
TLDR
Evidence is provided of a reciprocal noise-styrene synergism based on a redox imbalance mechanism affecting, although with a different intensity of damage, the outer hair cell (OHC) sensory epithelium. Expand
EchoScan: a new system to objectively assess peripheral hearing disorders.
TLDR
EchoScan can be used both in clinical investigations and in occupational medicine, especially for the auditory follow-up of people exposed to noise or ototoxic agents, and could be promising to assess early detection in programs to prevent hearing loss. Expand
Auditory and non-auditory effects of noise on health
TLDR
The importance of adequate noise prevention and mitigation strategies for public health is stressed, as Observational and experimental studies have shown that noise exposure leads to annoyance, disturbs sleep and causes daytime sleepiness. Expand

Combined effects of noise and styrene exposure on hearing function in the rat
TLDR
The results suggest that the two ototoxicants, noise and styrene, can cause a permanent synergistic loss of auditory sensitivity. Expand
Is the aged rat ear more susceptible to noise or styrene damage than the young ear?
TLDR
There is an influence of age on both noise-induced and styrene-induced threshold shift and hair cell loss in rats and the cochlea appear to have a redundancy in the number of OHCs, thus threshold shift does not necessarily occur with significant OHC loss. Expand
Use of DPOAEs for assessing hearing loss caused by styrene in the rat
TLDR
This experiment demonstrates that DPOAEs can be used to monitor the ototoxicity induced by styrene even though they cannot be considered as a more sensitive index of cochlear pathology than the evoked potentials, at least under experimental conditions. Expand
Susceptibility to noise exposure during postnatal development in rats
TLDR
Noise exposure in young rats produced an adult-like pattern with an elevation of hearing thresholds and young rats exposed to noise exhibited an enhancement of MLR amplitudes, more pronounced in the high frequency range. Expand
Interactive effects of aging with noise induced hearing loss.
TLDR
The view that aging with or without hearing loss increased the sensitivity of the ear to noise induced hearing loss is supported, however, it seems that other factors may contribute to NIHL in the animals with premature presbycusis. Expand
Presbycusis and noise-induced hearing loss.
TLDR
The differences between exposed and nonexposed older persons was no longer significant at age 79, and in women there were no differences in hearing sensitivity between those exposed to noise and those not exposure to noise. Expand
Evidence for the influence of aging on distortion-product otoacoustic emissions in humans.
TLDR
The principal finding was that, when compared to emissions in young ears, DPOAEs accurately tracked the systematic deterioration of high-frequency hearing in aging individuals. Expand
Influence of age and presbyacusis on DPOAE.
TLDR
It was shown that there is a highly significant decrease in DPOAE amplitudes during the ageing process, and it was proved that the main reason for this is deterioration in pure-tone thresholds. Expand
Age-related decline of auditory function in the chinchilla (Chinchilla laniger)
TLDR
Compared to rodents with shorter life spans, the chinchilla has a rate of loss that is more similar to that of humans, which could make it a valuable model for understanding the etiology of human presbycusis. Expand
Is the older ear more susceptible to noise damage?
TLDR
It is concluded that older chinchilla ears are not more susceptible to noise damage than younger ears. Expand
