Figure 2 Outer hair cell loss (mean ± standard error; normalized to mean analyzed length of the organ of Corti) of noise-exposed guinea pigs [CMV+ group (gray columns): n = 4; CMV− group (black columns): n = 5]. Data are represented as the total number of OHC loss (right) and further separated for the basal (left) and medial/apical (middle) cochlear region. No significant differences between the experimental groups have been detected for cell loss in the basal cochlear region, the medial/apical region as well as for the entire organ of Corti, respectively. CMV, cytomegalovirus; ns, not significant; OHC, outer hair cell.
