When the Immune System Attacks: New Help for Those Who

Become Deaf.

Author(s): ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. Source: ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. 15(35):6,66. August 29, 2005. Availability: Available from Merion Publications, Inc. 2900 Horizon Drive, Box 61556, King of Prussia, PA 19406-0956. (800) 355-5627, ext. 1446. (610) 278-1400. E-mail: advance@merion.com. Website: www.advanceweb.com. Language: English. Abstract: This article reports on a study that compared people with rapidly progressing hearing loss and people with normal hearing. More than half of the people with hearing loss had antibodies against a protein found in the inner ear, indicating that their immune systems recognized the inner ear supporting cell antigen (IESCA) as foreign. Almost half of the patients experienced improvement in their hearing after steroid treatment. The majority of those who improved had a positive immunofluoresecence test for an antibody to IESCA. Results suggest that a direct test for antibodies could predict accurately which patients would regain hearing with steroid treatment. Subject Category: Hearing.
