Project: Etiological factors for age-related hearing impairment

project duration
01-JAN-04 – 31-DEC-07
Age-related hearing impairment (ARHI), is the most frequent form of sensory impairment among elderly. It is known that several environmental as well as genetic factors have a proportional share in the etiology of ARHI. In this project, data will be collected through a specific questionnaire, audiometric and DNA analysis, to get a better insight in the predisposing factors of ARHI.
