  • Recent studies have underscored the ability of a wide range of chemical agents to potentate noise-induced hearing loss. Given the ubiquitous nature of noise exposure particularly in many work settings, the high rate of noise-induced hearing loss, the limited degree to which auditory function can recover following damage to the inner ear, and the disparate chemical structures that appear capable of impairing hearing, this issue appears to have great public health signifi-cance.
