By Gene Emery BOSTON (Reuters) - People treated with the antibiotic gentamicin can reduce the risk of permanent hearing loss, a possible side effect, by also taking aspirin, a study showed on Wednesday.
Long-term use of "NSAID" type pain relievers, such as aspirin and Motrin, appears to reduce the risk of oral cancer, a disease that is closely linked to tobacco use, new research suggests. Unfortunately, it may also increase the odds of dying from heart attack or stroke, so careful monitoring is required.
It's well known that high doses of aspirin can cause ulcers and temporary deafness, but the biochemical mechanism responsible for these phenomena has never been deciphered. New research from Rice University offers clues, showing for the first time how salicylate -- an active metabolite of aspirin -- weakens lipid membranes. Researchers believe these mechanical changes disrupt the lining of the stomach, which functions to protect underlying tissue from the acidic contents of the gut. By a...
