Dear all, I have a memory of a talk by Brian Moore, during which I think he mentioned aspirin having a mild protective effect against hearing impairment from acute loud noise. However, I may have misremembered: now that I search the literature, I can't find anything very definitive - and conversely, I find hints that aspirin may long-term mildly contribute to hearing loss (e.g. <>). I find some animal studies pointing in the direction of the factoid I remember <> <>). Can anyone confirm/deny whether such a protective effect is expected?
