The aim of the study was to determine the usefulness of new immunobiological tests using fractioned human inner ear antigen in the investigation of 4 Menière's disease and 12 rapidly progressive sensorineural hearing loss (RPSNHL). Each patient underwent a full ENT examination and a full range of immunobiological tests comprising ESR, electrophoresis, IgG, A, M, circulating immune complexes, cryoglobulins, complement, organ and non-organ auto-antibodies.
