Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern University Collaborate to Develop a Device to Prevent Hearing Loss in Patients Undergoing Chemotherapy

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern University are collaborating to develop a device to prevent hearing loss in patients undergoing chemotherapy. Chemotherapy patients are often caught unaware when they find themselves dealing with hearing loss following treatment. Klodd is directing the trial of a new device that may be able to detect hearing loss early in chemotherapy, so doctors may be able to change medications or dosages to minimize damage to the inner ear, and an audiologist can begin rehabilitation. Chemotherapy-related hearing loss usually begins in the high frequencies, where it often goes unnoticed. The patient only realizes something is wrong when damage affects the part of the inner ear that detects lower frequency sound. Unlike tests that rely on patients to signal when they hear a tone, the device developed by Northwestern University's Sumit Dhar and Jonathan Siegel, professor and associate professor, respectively, of communication sciences and disorders can detect changes in inner-ear function even before the patient is aware of any change in ability to hear at the high frequencies.
