Ototoxicity is defined as drug or chemical-related damage to the inner ear, causing damage to the organs in charge for hearing and balance. Ototoxicity is an adverse drug reaction (ADR) caused due to some medication. Ototoxicity or hearing loss, can be reversible or irreversible and can be associated with both long term administration of a large range of drugs and acute intoxication. The mechanism causing drug-induced ototoxicity not clear, but it can be due to biological and consequent electro-physiological alterations in the inner ear. There are more than 450 prescription and over-the-counter drugs that can trigger tinnitus or ototoxicity, make existing ototoxicity worse. It appears that drug-induced ototoxicity is quite variable and highly inconsistent. Drug-induced ototoxicity should be diagnosed based on the patient’s history, symptoms and test results. Many variables such as age, co-morbid medical conditions, and cognition levels may delay the early detection of drug-induced ototoxicity. Tinnitus or ringing in the ears, dizziness, uncoordinated movements are the common symptoms of drug-induced ototoxicity. The American Tinnitus Association (ATA) has published the list of ototoxic drugs that are capable of causing severe tinnitus or impaired hearing. This list published by (ATA) includes Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), certain antibiotics like aminoglycosides, Antimalarial medications, Certain anticonvulsants drugs etc.
Drug-Induced Ototoxicity Treatment Market: Drivers
It is expected that the drug-induced ototoxicity treatment market will grow significantly in the forecast period due to innovative and technological advancements in surgery, drugs and other medications. Growing incidence of drug-induced ototoxicity and rise in prevalence of ototoxic tinnitus is expected to drive the drug-induced ototoxicity treatment market, globally. Increasing prevalence of cancer and many infectious chronic disease will lead to demand of ototoxic drugs which will indirectly trigger the market growth for drug-induced ototoxicity treatment. Constant researches are being conducted for drug-induced ototoxicity treatment. Many leading market players are concentrating on new drug discovery for better treatment options for drug-induced ototoxicity. For instance, Decibel Therapeutics Inc. has invested $55 million in the development of therapies addressing multiple forms of hearing loss. The company has quietly built a pipeline of experimental drugs, and two of the new drug compounds are under clinical trials. However, low awareness about adverse drug reactions like hearing loss caused due to ototoxic drugs across regions could hamper the market growth for drug-induced ototoxicity treatment during the forecast period.
