Hearing loss as a predictor for hearing protection attenuation among miners
- MedicineOccupational and Environmental Medicine
The results of the adjusted regression models suggest that workers with hearing loss achieved significantly lower PARs than those without hearing loss, which brings into focus the potential benefit of fit checks to be included in hearing conservation programmes.
Systematic Transcriptome Analysis of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss Pathogenesis Suggests Inflammatory Activities and Multiple Susceptible Molecules and Pathways
- BiologyFrontiers in Genetics
This study indicates that the inflammatory response is involved in auditory organ changes in NIHL pathogenesis; moreover, several molecules and activities have essential and subtle influences that have translational potential for pharmacological intervention.
Prevalence, Awareness, and Factors Associated with Noise-induced Hearing Loss in Occupational Motorcyclists in Southwestern Nigeria
- MedicineNigerian journal of surgery : official publication of the Nigerian Surgical Research Society
More than half of the study population was aware of noise-induced hearing loss and was able to link it to their profession, whereas 50% agreed that their occupation placed them at risk of hearing loss.
EVALUATION OF THE FIRST TWO AUDIOMETRIC EXAMINATIONS AMONG METALLURGY WORKERS
Metallurgy workers exposed to occupational noise had a statistically significant worsening in the audiometric thresholds in all frequencies evaluated, except for 6000 Hz.
Assessment of noise levels in work areas at the Polokwane Platinum Smelter, South Africa
Noise, the Silent Killer
Noise, the ‘unwanted sound’, is now realised as one of the most important environmental hazard in the present day industrial world. Exposure to noise is imminent, spearheaded by man’s casual attitude…
Sonic YouthProtecting ourselves from noise-induced hearing loss should begin in childhood. What can audiologists do to convince kids—and their teachers and parents—to protect their hearing?
Protective effects of auditory toughening on noise induced hearing loss in rats

Effect of vitamin E supplementation on carbogen-induced amelioration of noise induced hearing loss in man.
- PhysicsNoise & health
Results of audiometric studies revealed that breathing of carbogen prevented the development of temporary threshold shift; thereby reducing the risk of noise induced hearing loss.

Auditory System Plasticity and Regeneration
What is currently known about the principles and mechanisms of hair cell regeneration are synthesized and future research directions in this challenging area of hearing science are identified.
Excitatory amino acid antagonists protect cochlear auditory neurons from excitotoxicity
- BiologyThe Journal of comparative neurology
Results suggest that the acute swelling of radial dendrites primarily occurs via AMPA/kainate receptors, however, in radial d endrites contacting the inner hair cells on their modiolar side, NMDA receptors may be also involved.
The emergence of free radicals after acoustic trauma and strial blood flow.
- Medicine, BiologyActa oto-laryngologica. Supplementum
The strange phenomenon that O2- emerged again at 2 h seemed ascribable to the re-circulation of strial blood flow after sound exposure, and the cause of its emergence at 5 min was obscure.
Protection against noise trauma by pre-exposure to a low level acoustic stimulus

Pharmacological strategies for preventing cochlear damage induced by noise trauma.
- MedicineNoise & health
Current experimental designs include strategies for protecting against injury and are primarily based on the fact that the metabolic state of the cochlea can determine the overall degree of hearing loss induced by noise.
The Protective Effects of Allopurinol and Superoxide Dismutase on Noise-Induced Cochlear Damage
- PhysicsOtolaryngology--head and neck surgery : official journal of American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
Findings show that SOD-PEG and allopurinol may preserve cochlear sensitivity associated with noise exposure, which suggests that noise-induced damage to the cochlea may be related to the activity of FORs.
Effects of occupational exposure to organic solvents and noise on hearing.
- MedicineScandinavian journal of work, environment & health
Exposure to the studied solvents had a toxic effect on the auditory system and that an interaction between noise and toluene took place, suggesting a central auditory pathway involvement in the hearing losses observed.
