Acoustical Society of America - 151st Meeting Press Release
"After 40+ years of study, we can conclude that there is a great range of individual differences in susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL)," says Donald Henderson of the Center for Hearing and Deafness at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Henderson will review the different acoustical, environmental and biological factors that can lead to variations (2aPPb1).
HealthScout - Shhhh! The Noise Is Damaging
Complicating matters is the fact that most people don't notice hearing loss because it can be gradual and subtle , says Donald Henderson , co-director for the Center_for Hearing and Deafness at the State University of New_York at Buffalo.
If you took a random selection of fourth graders and compared their hearing with college seniors , you'd find a difference , with the seniors having more hearing loss.But since hearing loss is such a slow process , if you asked those seniors if they have hearing loss , they'd probably say no , and even when the loss was more substantial in their 30s , they may not be aware of it , he
And , he
says they can't get it back..
In_addition to hearing loss , Henderson
says household noise causes stress-related health problems , including elevated blood pressure , fatigue , reduced sleep , increased frustration and anxiety levels and difficulty in concentrating.
To avoid such problems , ASHA recommends you :.
Keep your television , stereo and radio volume low.

...Hangauer, Senior Vice President of Research and Development at Kinex said "We are pleased by this opportunity to work with Dr. Henderson, a world renowned hearing expert, to translate our collaborative research into novel therapeutics for hearing loss".
...Henderson is a professor in the department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences at the University at Buffalo and a well recognized leader in the field noise induced hearing loss.
Kinex plans to use the licensed Intellectual Property to develop a drug to both treat and protect from noise-induced hearing loss.In addition, hearing loss experienced by cancer patients as a result of chemotherapy will be studied.Previous work has demonstrated that when chinchillas are treated with Kinex drugs, they are protected from damage normally caused by the generation of free radicals.Since these drugs exhibit virtually no toxicity, the Company believes that there will be a large market for this kind of therapeutic.The results that led to these conclusions will be presented by Henderson
at an international meeting to be held in Niagara Falls, Ontario in early October."There is a keen interest on the part of the military for drugs that will protect soldiers on active duty.The drugs being developed by Kinex
exhibit the kind of profile that is necessary for prophylactic treatment.We are extremely enthusiastic about the future of such a product", said Henderson
