Failure of industrial noise to change the patterns of vanilmandelic acid and 17-hydroxycorticosteroids in the urine of the female weavers with hearing loss.
The field experiments were undertaken on two consecutive working days on seven female weavers with noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), and a control group of seven sewers with normal hearing.
The first day, urine was collected during the shift (06:00-14:00 h) and at home (17:00-08:00 h) for measurements of 17-hydroxycorticosteroids (17-OH) levels.
The following day, the procedure was repeated, but for vanilmandelic acid (VMA) analysis.
No significant changes in the hormone levels were found, both concerning the different occupational noise exposure and the periods of a working day.
