Publication date: Available online 16 March 2019Source: NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Hannah Brotherton, Charlotte Turtle, Christopher J. Plack, Kevin J. Munro, Roland SchaetteAbstractThe occurrence of tinnitus is associated with hearing loss and neuroplastic changes in the brain, but disentangling correlation and causation has remained difficult in both human and animal studies. Here we use earplugs to cause a period of monaural deprivation to induce a temporary, fully reversible tinnitus sensation, to test whether differences in subcortical changes in neural response gain, as reflected through changes in acoustic reflex thresho...

ConclusionWe detected that the total oxidant status, oxidative stress index and serum prolidase enzyme activity levels were higher in patients with tinnitus when compared to the healthy controls. This finding suggests that oxidative stress index and serum prolidase enzyme activity may play a role in the etiopathogenesis of tinnitus.ResumoIntroduçãoO zumbido é definido como a percepção de um som na cabeça na ausência de sons externos. A causa do zumbido ainda é desconhecida.ObjetivoNosso objetivo foi comparar os níveis séricos do estado oxidante total, est...

CONCLUSION: Noise trauma initially results in hair cell damage. After recovery, hearing loss may persist, which can be due to synaptic lesions in the first neuron. An adequate testbattery has to be developped. PMID: 30874853 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurposePulsatile tinnitus (PT) due to sigmoid sinus wall anomalies (SSWA) is a common health disorder. The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficiency of simple sigmoid sinus bony wall repair on tinnitus relief and psychological improvement.MethodsNine cases of PT due to SSWA were retrospectively reviewed. All of these cases had defect of sigmoid sinus bony wall with or without diverticulum in high-resolution CT. The bony defects were repaired by multi-layer materials, i.e., temporalis fascia, bone dust and another layer of bone dust. The assessment of visual analog scale (VAS) of tinnitus and Mandarin v...

Looking for a group that explores the relationship between audiological services and public health issues? Let Amy Boudin-George explain why this SIG is for you. When did you join your SIG—and what made you want to join? I joined after I began working in the Department of Defense (DoD), where hearing loss and prevention are seen as being in the public health domain, in addition to being a medical issue. SIG 8 hits that exact mark and goes beyond, showing how hearing loss and tinnitus are public health issues on a global scale. How has your involvement with the SIG helped you in your career? ...

Conclusions: Compared with other SU-lowering treatments, febuxostat does not increase or decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease but may increase the risk of CVD death. More RCTs measuring cardiovascular safety as a primary outcome are needed to adequately evaluate the risk of CVD with febuxostat. PMID: 30863448 [PubMed]

Authors: Vitali F, Berghout J, Fan J, Li J, Li Q, Li H, Lussier YA Abstract Repurposing existing drugs for new therapeutic indications can improve success rates and streamline development. Use of large-scale biomedical data repositories, including eQTL regulatory relationships and genome-wide disease risk associations, offers opportunities to propose novel indications for drugs targeting common or convergent molecular candidates associated to two or more diseases. This proposed novel computational approach scales across 262 complex diseases, building a multi-partite hierarchical network integrating (i) GWAS-derived...
