Abstract [en]

It has previously been demonstrated that the carriers of the German waltzing guinea pig are less susceptible to noise trauma. To explore whether this represents a general resistance to inner ear trauma, carriers of the German waltzing guinea pig were exposed to the ototoxic agent cisplatin. Two doses of cisplatin were injected intravenously into anesthetized carriers and weight-matched control animals. Prior to and 96 h after the injections hearing thresholds were established by recording the auditory brainstem responses at 3.5, 7, 14, and 28 kHz. The cochleae were harvested to estimate hair cell loss and to analyze total platinum content. The carriers of the German waltzing guinea pig strain suffered from a more pronounced cisplatin-induced hearing loss compared to the control animals. The results suggest that mechanisms responsible for the protection against acoustic stress do not provide any protection against cisplatin in carriers of the German waltzing guinea pig.
