[Effect of chronic sensorineural hearing loss on several indicators of immune and endocrine systems of 7-11 year-old children].


PMID 23713357

Abstract

We investigated the effects of chronic bilateral sensorineural hearing loss of III-IV degree on the performance of interleukins, immunoglobulins serum and saliva, the functional activity of granulocyte-monocyte cell immunity, evaluated the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal system in children aged 7-11 years. It was found that due to stress activation of the sympathetic-adrenal system the function of granulocytes and monocytes is suppressed, with a predominance of production of anti-inflammatory interleukins. This leads to the dominance of T-helper type 2. Products granulocytes and T-helper type-2 anti-inflammatory interleukins IL-4, IL-5, IL-10, IL-13 leads to the activation of B-cells. Thus, in children 7-11 years of age with congenital bilateral sensorineural hearing loss is a decrease of non-specific humoral immunity dominated type of immune response to increased levels of IgG.
