Welcome to the Division 6 Perspectives. The topic of this issue is ototoxicity. Ototoxicity refers to damage of hearing and/or balance mechanisms in the inner ear brought about by exposure to chemical agents, including drugs, which may lead to permanent loss of function. To help readers better understand ototoxicity, we asked five groups of recognized experts to submit articles. In the following pages, they explore various issues related to ototoxicity, including its mechanisms, the specific impact on the hearing and balance systems, and how these effects are monitored. It is hoped that this thematic approach will enhance your awareness and deepen your insights regarding ototoxicity.
