Does Aspirin Have a Protective Role Against Chemotherapeutically Induced Ototoxicity?
Recruitment status was: Not yet recruiting
Aspirin (ASA) has been shown, in an animal model, to attenuate the ototoxic properties of cisplatin. The researchers plan to investigate this in patients undergoing cisplatin chemotherapy.
The researchers hypothesise that low-dose aspirin can prevent cisplatin induced ototoxicity in the clinical setting.
