Título The effects of noise on hearing and oxidative stress in textile workers
Información bibliográfica Dec. 2007, Vol.45, No.6, p.743-749. 25 ref.
Resumen The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of noise on hearing, lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzymes in textile workers. Thirty workers exposed to a noise level of 105dB(A) in a textile factory and 30 unexposed hospital workers, all male, were included in the study. Both groups were given audiometric tests and provided blood samples for the determination of various markers of oxidative stress. Mean pure tone audiometric thresholds in workers were significantly higher in the exposed group than in control subjects. In the exposed group, hearing losses were more evident at high frequencies than at low frequencies. Also, textile workers with longer employment duration had poorer hearing thresholds, starting among those having worked for 5-8 yrs. Blood analyses support the hypothesis that the noise causes the oxidative stress.
