    Infliximab is useful in which of the following immune diseases?

    • A.

      Rheumatoid arthritis

    • B.

      Lung inflammation

    • C.

      Peptic ulcer

    • D.

      Kidney failure

    Correct Answer
    A. Rheumatoid arthritis
    Explanation
    Infliximab is a medication that is commonly used to treat immune diseases, specifically rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system mistakenly attacks the joints, causing inflammation, pain, and swelling. Infliximab works by targeting and neutralizing a specific protein in the body that is responsible for promoting inflammation. By blocking this protein, infliximab helps to reduce the symptoms and progression of rheumatoid arthritis. Therefore, infliximab is not useful in lung inflammation, peptic ulcer, or kidney failure, but it is specifically indicated for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

    • D.

      ORS

    Correct Answer
    B. Cromolyn
    Explanation
    Cromolyn is recommended for asthmatic patients because it is a medication that helps prevent asthma attacks by reducing inflammation in the airways. It is often used as a preventive treatment to help control and manage asthma symptoms. Paracetamol is a pain reliever and fever reducer, not specifically indicated for asthma. Phosphorus capsules and ORS (Oral Rehydration Solution) are not typically used in the treatment of asthma.

    Which of these is a type of Angiotensin Receptor Blocker?

    • A.

      Oriotarn

    • B.

      Ibrutan

    • C.

      Losartan

    • D.

      Duntarn

    Correct Answer
    C. Losartan
    Explanation
    Losartan is a type of Angiotensin Receptor Blocker. It is commonly used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It works by blocking the action of a hormone called angiotensin II, which causes blood vessels to narrow. By blocking this hormone, losartan helps to relax and widen the blood vessels, reducing blood pressure and improving blood flow.

    Which of these is an example of intravenous 3rd generation cephalosporin?

    • A.

      Polymyxin B

    • B.

      Bacitracin

    • C.

      Neomycin

    • D.

      Ceftriaxone

    Correct Answer
    D. Ceftriaxone
    Explanation
    Ceftriaxone is an example of an intravenous 3rd generation cephalosporin. Cephalosporins are a class of antibiotics that are effective against a wide range of bacteria. Ceftriaxone is commonly used to treat serious infections such as pneumonia, meningitis, and urinary tract infections. It is given intravenously, meaning it is administered directly into the bloodstream, allowing for rapid and effective delivery of the medication. Ceftriaxone is a third-generation cephalosporin, which means it has a broad spectrum of activity against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.

    Which of the following is not a beta-lactam antibiotic? 

    • A.

      Ibuprofen

    • B.

      Penicillin

    • C.

      Cephalosporin

    • D.

      Monobactam

    Correct Answer
    A. Ibuprofen
    Explanation
    Ibuprofen is not a beta-lactam antibiotic because it does not contain the beta-lactam ring structure that is characteristic of beta-lactam antibiotics such as penicillin, cephalosporin, and monobactam. Beta-lactam antibiotics are a class of antibiotics that are effective against a wide range of bacteria by inhibiting the synthesis of bacterial cell walls. Ibuprofen, on the other hand, is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is commonly used for pain relief and reducing inflammation.

    Negative effects of beta blockers include the following except

    • A.

      Sedation

    • B.

      Acute asthma

    • C.

      Brain damage

    • D.

      Impotence

    Correct Answer
    C. Brain damage
    Explanation
    Beta blockers are medications commonly used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure and heart disease. They work by blocking the effects of adrenaline on the body's beta receptors, leading to a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure. While beta blockers can have side effects, such as sedation and impotence, brain damage is not typically associated with their use. Therefore, the correct answer is "Brain damage."

    Which of theservice is not a calcium channel blocker?

    • A.

      Procadia

    • B.

      Calan

    • C.

      Capoten

    • D.

      Cadizen

    Correct Answer
    C. Capoten
    Explanation
    Capoten is not a calcium channel blocker. It is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that is used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. Calcium channel blockers, on the other hand, work by blocking the entry of calcium into the cells of the heart and blood vessels, resulting in relaxation of the blood vessels and reduced workload on the heart. Examples of calcium channel blockers include Procadia, Calan, and Cadizen.
