Conclusion. The results of this study suggest that treatment with radical scavengers has the potential to become an effective new therapy for age-related hearing loss. Objective. To assess the efficacy of treatment with radical scavengers for age-related hearing loss. Subjects and methods. Rebamipide (300 mg/day), α-lipoic acid (60 mg/day), and vitamin C (600 mg/day) were given orally for at least 8 weeks to 46 elderly patients with age-related hearing loss. Results. Hearing levels after… 
Protective Effects of Silymarin Against Age-Related Hearing Loss in an Aging Rat Model
TLDR
It is indicated that silymarin with doses of 100 and 200 mg/kg/day has protective effect against ARHL and it can be supplemented into the diet of older people to slow down the progression of age-related hearing loss.
Correlation between plasma levels of radical scavengers and hearing threshold among elderly subjects with age-related hearing loss
TLDR
Low plasma melatonin is significant in the development of high frequency hearing loss (HL) among the elderly and Spearman's correlation revealed significant correlation between increasing hearing threshold and melatonin.

Role of antioxidants in prevention of age-related hearing loss: a review of literature
Age-related hearing loss (ARHL), also known as presbycusis, is one of the most prevalent chronic degenerative conditions. It is characterized by a decline in auditory function. ARHL is caused by the
Antioxidant therapy in the elderly with tinnitus.
Evaluation of antioxidant treatment in presbyacusis: prospective, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomised trial.
TLDR
There was no statistically significant change in the hearing threshold after treatment with any of the tested drugs, during the study period, either between groups or over time.
The role of mitochondria in age-related hearing loss
TLDR
The central role of mitochondria in ARHL is focused on and the mitochondrial redox imbalance and mitochondrial DNA mutation might collaboratively involve in the process of cochlear senescence in response to the aging stress.
Interventions to Prevent Age-Related Hearing Loss
TLDR
Large clinical trials are needed to investigate if ARHL can be delayed or prevented in humans by supplement intakes of a combination of antioxidants, agents that act to prevent/treat atherosclerosis, and both.
Age-related hearing loss or presbycusis
TLDR
The pathophysiology; heritability, susceptibility genes and other risk factors including environmental, medical, especially free radical (ROS) and damage of mitochondrial DNA; and some strategies of treatment, as well as promising rehabilitations associating with presbycusis are reviewed.
Mitochondria-Targeted Antioxidants for Treatment of Hearing Loss: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Protective effects of MitoQ and SkQR1 against ototoxicity have been previously evaluated in animal models and/or mouse auditory cell lines and high-quality clinical trials are required to reveal the therapeutic effect of mitochondria-targeted antioxidants in terms of otoprotection in patients.

Antioxidants in Treatment of Idiopathic Sudden Hearing Loss
TLDR
Patients treated with the addition of vitamin E achieved better recovery than did the control patients and further studies should be directed toward a better understanding of the role of antioxidants in idiopathic sudden hearing loss.

TLDR
It is shown that radical scavengers increase the hearing level in some cases of presbyacusis and this conclusion, if confirmed, will have an important clinical impact as the number of elderly individuals is increasing.
Effects of Dietary Restriction and Antioxidants on Presbyacusis
TLDR
Experiments provide compelling evidence that long‐term treatment with compounds that block or scavenge reactive oxygen metabolites attenuate age‐related hearing loss and reduce the impact of associated deleterious changes at the molecular level.

TLDR
The purpose of this article is to review the various molecular mechanisms underlying presbyacusis and to offer insights into potential methods of mitigating the effects of aging on hearing impairment.
