Beyond the Lab, Understanding Communication Disorders: Speaker Series Learn how deafness can be inherited (passed down through generations). Genetic research can improve our understanding of which gene variants are associated with human hereditary deafness. By identifying these gene variants, scientists may be able to diagnose certain forms of hereditary hearing loss earlier and more accurately. The program is part of the Beyond the Lab speaker series offered by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). Designed for administrative and support staff as well as scientists, the speaker seri...

In this study we aimed to evaluate the efficacy of Pycnogenol® supplementation in controlling oxidative stress levels and in reducing the frequency and severity of side effects of levothyroxine (LT4) treatment in patients who had recently started this therapy. METHODS: The registry included 60 females affected by primary hypothyroidism with multi-nodular goiter. LT4 was administered at the dosage of 100 μg/day.The registry study included only subjects under initial treatment, and followed up for a period of at least 30 days. A group took 150 mg Pycnogenol® daily and another served as control. RESULTS: Th...

CONCLUSION: Early onset of unilateral deafening leads to the alternation of contralateral dominance in the early period, replaced by faster and massive reorganization toward the ipsilateral cortex. But, gradual adaptation in the contralateral side was exclusively observed. Given the short critical period in the young SSD model, early intervention may be crucial for the development of binaural hearing if SSD occurs early in life. PMID: 31092025 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to investigate health state utility values in eight health states related to osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures using time trade-off (TTO) technique among postmenopausal Korean women. METHODS: Scenarios describing eight health states including osteoporosis and hip, vertebral, post-hip, post-vertebral, ankle, humerus, and wrist fractures were developed and presented to 500 female participants aged 45 to 59 years who were selected with probability proportionate to age group and region for this investigation. Each health states valuation was derived using the trade-off (TTO) technique. 10 years of a ...
