Systematic screening for nonspecific autoantibodies in idiopathic sensorineural hearing loss (iSHL): no association with steroid response

1 post in this topic

Systematic screening for nonspecific autoantibodies in idiopathic sensorineural hearing loss (iSHL): no association with steroid response. The results of this study suggest that positive autoimmune tests in patients with iSHL are not predictive of improvement after a 1-month steroid course. Therefore, systematic screening does not seem to be useful, and specific inner ear autoantibody tests need to be developed. B Hervier. (PubMed) Otol Neurotol. 2010 Jun;31(4):687-90.
