ATSU-ASHS Audiology professor has multiple research articles published, featured on public radio

Kristy Knight, MS, adjunct assistant professor, A.T. Still University-Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) Post-Professional Doctor of Audiology online program, was featured in several research publications throughout 2023, as well as on “Think Out Loud,” Oregon Public Broadcasting’s news podcast.

In addition to her role at ATSU, Knight is a pediatric audiologist and associate professor in the pediatrics department at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Oregon Health and Science University. She specializes in hearing loss in infants, children, and adolescents, and her clinical research focuses on pediatric ototoxicity monitoring and identifying risk factors for platinum-induced hearing loss.

Her research was featured in four publications last year: 

“Intravenous N-Acetylcysteine to Prevent Cisplatin-Induced Hearing Loss in Children: A Nonrandomized Controlled Phase I Trial”, was published in volume 29, issue 13 of Clinical Cancer Research.

“Sodium thiosulfate as cisplatin otoprotectant in children: The challenge of when to use it”, was published in volume 70, issue 5 of Pediatric Blood & Cancer.

“Reevaluation of sodium thiosulfate otoprotection using the consensus International Society of Paediatric Oncology Ototoxicity Scale: A report from the Children’s Oncology Group study ACCL0431”, was published in volume 70, issue 9 of Pediatric Blood & Cancer.

“Special considerations in the design and implementation of pediatric otoprotection trials”, was published in volume 17, issue 1 of the Journal of Cancer Survivorship: Research and Practice.

In the podcast episode, Knight discussed the recent FDA approval of the usage of sodium thiosulfate for reducing hearing loss in pediatric cancer patients.
