A Potential Role for Cell Death in Age-Related Hearing Loss

Written by Administrator   

Several genes that play a role in how our body's cells normally auto-destruct may play a role in age-related hearing loss.

Doctors know that genetics play some role in such hearing loss, which affects nearly everyone older than 60, as well as many people somewhat younger. But while more than 100 genes are known to play a role in congenital deafness, scientists have yet to pinpoint any gene in humans that plays a role in presbycusis, or age-related hearing loss.

The research in mice, done by using sophisticated technology comparing gene activity in older mice to their younger counterparts, offers a sort of roadmap to researchers who are confident they are closing in on some of the genetic factors that are part of the process in people.

"It's very likely that multiple genes contribute to age-related hearing loss," said Robert D. Frisina, Ph.D., the lead investigator and professor of Otolaryngology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. "We know the same is true for other diseases, for instance some types of cancer and heart disease."

Frisina is co-director of the International Center for Hearing and Speech Research, which is based both at the University of Rochester Medical Center and at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf in Rochester, N.Y. The group comprises one of the largest research groups in the world devoted to studying, and preventing, the problem of hearing loss as we get older.

The team has spent nearly 20 years looking at the problem. More than 800 people have been put through a rigorous battery of tests that analyze the condition of their ears, their brain performance, and their genes. Despite the effort and that of other groups around the world, there is currently no way to reverse the hearing loss, largely because of the complexity of the process. In addition to genetics, other factors that play a role in presbycusis include sound exposure, medications that can damage hearing, the condition of the brain as it deteriorates with age, and changes in the delicate cells in the inner ear that translate a sound into a signal that the brain "hears."

"Age-related hearing loss is a very serious problem for patients, and it's also challenging for scientists who study it," said Frisina. "There are many potential reasons. It could be a problem in the brain, or the problem could rest with any number of cells in the inner ear. The causes are more complicated than in a condition like Parkinson's disease, where we know exactly which type of cell dies in which part of the brain."

To begin to understand the genetics of human hearing, the group has been charting the activity of more than 22,000 genes in mice, comparing young mice to their older counterparts. In the study in Apoptosis, the team used two different methods to study gene expression, thanks to funding from the...

Understanding Age-Related Hearing Loss and Knowing When to Seek Help

...
Written by Administrator   

For many people, hearing loss is part of aging. Hearing loss affects approximately one-third of people over age 65. Among people age 75 and older, 40 percent to 50 percent experience hearing loss.

Age-related hearing loss, called presbycusis (pre-bih-KU-sis), usually occurs gradually and affects both ears equally. Presbycusis is most commonly associated with changes in the inner ear, typically involving the loss of some of the tiny receptor hair cells found in the snail-shaped cochlea.

Age-related hearing loss tends to run in families, but the cumulative effect of loud noise and some medications can harm hearing, too. Drugs linked to hearing loss include gentamicin, an intravenous antibiotic typically used for severe infection; cisplatin, a chemotherapy agent; and some diuretic drugs, such as furosemide (Lasix).

With presbycusis, the ability to hear high-pitched sounds is usually affected first. The voices of women and children can be more difficult to understand. Some people with presbycusis find loud noises and sounds especially annoying. It also can be accompanied by ringing or buzzing in the ears.

When hearing loss is suspected, it's a good idea to visit a primary care doctor or an ear, nose and throat specialist to determine if any treatable conditions are contributing to hearing loss. An audiologist can confirm presbycusis and offer
