Özet

Background/aim: Oxaliplatin is an effective and widely used chemotherapeutic agent in the treatment of many solid tumors. The most common side effects are peripheral neuropathy, gastrointestinal toxicity, and neutropenia. There have been some case reports about ototoxicity with oxaliplatin, but no clinical trials. In this trial, we explored whether or not oxaliplatin has ototoxic effects.
