Otoadmittance measurements in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

The Journal of Laryngology and Otology
D A MoffatW P Gibson


Analysis of middle ear function has for many years been accomplished by acoustic impedance measurements and this has proved of great clinical value. The vectors which contribute to impedance are functions of mass, stiffness and resistance of the system and information about these components may be obtained by use of the otoadmittance meter. The shape of the tympanogram may be altered both by pathologies which change the relative magnitude of the vectors and by variation in the probe tone frequency. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (55 ears) were compared with a series of controls (50 ears); 38% of 'rheumatoid ears' demonstrated a marked notch on the 660 Hz susceptance curve whilst only 8% of the control group showed this abnormality. The pattern suggests a decrease in the stiffness of the transducer mechanism in rheumatoid arthritis.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
