Objective: NIHL is a common problem, and steroids are the most effective treatment option. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the protective effects of the synthetic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) analogues, which induce endogenous steroid secretion, against noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) and to compare their effectiveness with that of steroid treatment.
