Clinical Audiology Bibliography
“A Selective Annotated Bibliography for Clinical Audiology (1989–2009): Books” appears in Papers in Press of the American Journal of Audiology. The second in a series of three companion articles, this bibliography is designed to help audiologists and librarians identify relevant clinical audiology literature. The index presents a selected, annotated, and indexed bibliography of clinical audiology publications within the last 20 years. Research and preparation of the bibliography was based on published guidelines and the experience of professional audiologists and librarians. The first article in the series covered reference works, and the third will present periodicals and online resources.
Hope for Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
A potential new drug treatment may help restore noise-induced hearing loss. Researchers at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, found that injections of adenosine amine congener (ADAC) were effective in substantially restoring noise-induced hearing loss in rats. The rats were exposed to narrow-band noise in an acoustic chamber for two to 24 hours to induce cochlear damage and permanent hearing loss and were then injected with either ADAC or a placebo. The rats received a single injection six hours after noise exposure; a single injection after 24 hours; or multiple daily injections for five days. The earlier treatment provided a greater recovery than the injection administered a day later, but the most effective treatment was daily multiple injections, according to the study in Purinergic Signalling (Vol. 6, No. 2). The study’s authors believe this research “presents the most effective pharmacological strategy to date for treating noise-induced hearing loss post-trauma.”
