Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hearing loss is recognized as a serious health problem, especially in the generic population, but also in the industrialized environment, where the level of noise can increase hearing loss among children, young, and middle-aged people. To date, there is no widely used pharmacological treatment officially approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or EMA (European Medical Agency). The prevention of death of hearing cells can be incredibly challenging. For people with severe to profound hearing loss, cochlear implants are the only option, while for less severe cases, hearing aids are possible. As a result, questions about possible, effective, and safe pharmacological treatment are still open.

This Special Issue o ‘Pharmacological Treatment of Hearing Loss’ aims to focus on major developments related to the pharmacological and biological treatment of hearing loss and possible mechanisms (pharmacological approaches of prevention of hearing loss caused by exposure to moderate levels of noise in the workplace (e.g., machinery), recreational environments (e.g., loud music, motorcycles), drug, age-related hearing loss, ototoxic agents, and many other factors.

Papers discussing the results of basic and clinical research will be accepted, as well as review papers. Possible topics include both pharmacological treatments and other technical or hybrid solutions.
