Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pre-treatment audiogram will be compared with the post treatment audiogram. The differences between the two will be calculated and compared to the differences in the opposite ear. [ Time Frame: Patients will be enrolled in the study for 4-6 weeks from the initiation of therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: July 2006
Study Completion Date: June 2010
Primary Completion Date: June 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: 1
Each patient will receive a bottle containing normal saline and 0.03% ofloxacin.
Drug: Normal Saline and 0.3% ofloxacin
The patient will be instructed to place one dropper full of solution in the external auditory canal. The bottle will be marked right or left ear and are only to be used in the designated ear. The drops will be administered at the start time, 30 minutes after chemotherapy starts and hourly for 4 hours after infusion.
Experimental: 2
Each patient will receive a bottle containing Lactated Ringer's solution and 0.03% ofloxacin.
Drug: Lactated Ringer's with 0.03% Ofloxacin
The patient will be instructed to place one dropper full of solution in the external auditory canal. The bottle will be marked right or left ear. The drops will be administered at the start time, 30 minutes after chemotherapy starts and hourly for 4 hours after infusion.

Detailed Description:

About one-third of people who have been given Cisplatin, as part of their chemotherapy treatment, develop hearing loss. The purpose of this study is to determine if some degree of hearing loss can be prevented by use of Lactated Ringer's solution in the middle ear. To study this, patients will use drops in their ears; Lactated Ringer's will be placed in one ear and an inactive saline solution will be placed in the other. Ofloxacin, an eardrop antibiotic will be placed in each ear at the same time. Each participant will receive a hearing evaluation before each dose of Cisplatin and another evaluation 2 to 4 weeks after the final treatment.
