Ototoxicity of kanamycin in developing rats: relationship with the onset of the auditory function.


In order to test the relationship between the ototoxicity of kanamycin and the onset of the auditory function, two groups of developing rats were intoxicated with kanamycin before and after the period of onset of cochlear potentials (8th postnatal day). Kanamycin was shown to have a weak ototoxic effect before the 8th postnatal day and a strong ototoxic effect after this period. These results indicate a critical period of sensitivity to ototoxic antibiotics during auditory development.
