carcinus showed a residual inhibition of more than 80% by PMSF and SBT1, indicating the presence of serine proteases (Garcia-Carreno & Haard, 1993); While SBT1 inhibited two bands (45.8 and 28.5 kDa) and PMSF inhibited all bands of proteolytic activity.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the residual inhibition to determine whether the use of tinnitus maskers would be a viable treatment course.
To compare the residual inhibition between male and female group of individuals with tinnitus.
To compare the residual inhibition across age groups of individuals with tinnitus.
Residual inhibition refers to the phenomenon where the tinnitus perception is reduced in intensity or eliminated altogether following auditory stimulation.
They reported that 90% of them demonstrated some form of residual inhibition. (5)
Studies report a few cases in which 15 minutes of masking noise resulted in residual inhibition of tinnitus for the entire day.
Authors conducted a parametric study of residual inhibition to determine the dependence of RI on masker characteristics such as centre frequency, bandwidth, intensity and duration.
Most of the individuals were reported positive residual inhibition effect.
So, individuals with SNHL, mainly presbycusis, will get more benefit from residual inhibition. These individuals will perform better with digital programmable hearing aid.
Addition of specific "PCR enhancers" or "PCR inhibition suppressor" reagents such as bovine serum albumin (BSA) or betaine can also help overcome any residual inhibition downstream of extraction.
This is due to the fact that the residual inhibition of the distractor must be overcome before the relevant response can be produced.
