    Correct Answer
    A. Journal of antimicrobial Chemotherapy
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that when levofloxacin is combined with cephalosporins, it shows the highest level of activity among the tested combinations. This implies that the combination of levofloxacin and cephalosporins is particularly effective in treating infections caused by certain microorganisms. The reference to the "Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy" indicates that this finding is supported by research published in a reputable scientific journal specializing in antimicrobial agents.

    • C.

      1 tab BID for 7 days

    • D.

      1 tab OD for 10 days

    Correct Answer
    A. 1 tab OD for 7 days
    Explanation
    The correct dosage of CEFI L is 1 tablet once daily for 7 days. This means that the medication should be taken once a day for a total of 7 days.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    As per VAF In CEFI L Cefixime Offers excellent activity against 

    • A.

      Atypical Bacteria

    • B.

      Gram Negative and Gram Positive Bacteria

    • C.

      Gram Positive and Atypical bacteria

    • D.

      Gram Negative Bacteria

    Correct Answer
    D. Gram Negative Bacteria
    Explanation
    Cefixime offers excellent activity against gram-negative bacteria. Gram-negative bacteria have a unique cell wall structure that makes them more resistant to antibiotics compared to gram-positive bacteria. Cefixime is a third-generation cephalosporin antibiotic that is effective against a wide range of gram-negative bacteria, including Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Proteus mirabilis. It works by inhibiting the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall, leading to cell death. Therefore, cefixime is a suitable choice for treating infections caused by gram-negative bacteria.

    As per VAF In CEFI L Levofloxacin Offers excellent activity against 

    • A.

      Atypical Bacteria

    • B.

      Gram Negative and Gram Positive Bacteria

    • C.

      Gram Positive and Atypical bacteria

    • D.

      Gram Negative Bacteria

    Correct Answer
    C. Gram Positive and Atypical bacteria
    Explanation
    Levofloxacin is known for its excellent activity against both Gram-positive and atypical bacteria. Gram-positive bacteria are a group of bacteria that retain the crystal violet dye during the Gram staining process, while atypical bacteria do not fit into the typical classification schemes and have unique characteristics. Levofloxacin's effectiveness against both types of bacteria makes it a versatile antibiotic option for treating various infections caused by these organisms.

  • 5. 

    As per VAF In CEFI L Cefixime and Levofloxacin  

    • A.

      Increases efficacy

    • B.

      Minimises resistance

    • C.

      Increases safety

    • D.

      Improves results

    Correct Answer
    B. Minimises resistance
    Explanation
    The combination of Cefixime and Levofloxacin in VAF minimizes resistance. This means that using both drugs together reduces the likelihood of bacteria developing resistance to them. By using a combination of antibiotics, it becomes more difficult for bacteria to adapt and become resistant to the drugs, increasing the effectiveness of the treatment.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    As mentioned in VAF Levofloxacin offers

    • A.

      Higher Lung tissue concentration

    • B.

      Higher Intestinal concentration

    • C.

      Higher Bile concentration

    • D.

      Higher Gall Bladder concentration

    Correct Answer
    A. Higher Lung tissue concentration
    Explanation
    Levofloxacin offers higher lung tissue concentration compared to the other options mentioned. This means that when levofloxacin is administered, it has a greater ability to accumulate in the lung tissue, potentially leading to better efficacy in treating lung infections. The higher concentration in the lung tissue may be due to specific pharmacokinetic properties of levofloxacin, such as its ability to penetrate lung tissues effectively or its affinity for lung tissue receptors.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    As mentioned in VAF Levofloxacin shows 99% Susceptibility for

    • A.

      Staphylococcus aureus

    • B.

      Haemophillus influenza

    • C.

      Moraxella catarhallis

    • D.

      Streptococcus pneumonia

    Correct Answer
    D. Streptococcus pneumonia
    Explanation
    Levofloxacin exhibits a 99% susceptibility for Streptococcus pneumonia, as stated in the VAF. This means that the antibiotic is highly effective in treating infections caused by this particular bacteria. It is important to note that the susceptibility percentage indicates the likelihood of the antibiotic being effective against the specific pathogen.

  • 8. 

    The Punchline of CEFI L is 

    • A.

      Double attack for successful results

    • B.

      Superior Coverage Improves clinical outcome

    • C.

      The Bramhastra for LRTI

    • D.

      Once a Day antibiotic

    Correct Answer
    B. Superior Coverage Improves clinical outcome
    Explanation
    The punchline of CEFI L suggests that it provides superior coverage, which means it is effective against a wide range of bacteria. This leads to improved clinical outcomes, indicating that patients who use CEFI L are more likely to have successful results in their treatment. Additionally, CEFI L is referred to as the Bramhastra for LRTI (Lower Respiratory Tract Infections), implying that it is a powerful and reliable antibiotic for treating these types of infections. Moreover, the fact that it is taken once a day adds to its convenience and ease of use.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    BMC in "BMC infectious disease 2011" means

    • A.

      Bio Med Centre

    • B.

      British Medical council

    • C.

      British Medical Centre

    • D.

      British Memorial Council

    Correct Answer
    A. Bio Med Centre
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Bio Med Centre". In the context of the given question, "BMC" refers to "Bio Med Centre". This can be inferred from the options provided, where the other options such as "British Medical council", "British Medical Centre", and "British Memorial Council" do not match the given abbreviation. Therefore, "Bio Med Centre" is the most appropriate and logical explanation for the abbreviation "BMC" in the given context.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Levofloxacin belongs to which group of Antibiotics

    • A.

      Penicillins

    • B.

      Macrolides

    • C.

      Fluoroquinolones

    • D.

      Cephalosporins

    Correct Answer
    C. Fluoroquinolones
    Explanation
    Levofloxacin belongs to the group of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones. Fluoroquinolones are a class of synthetic antibiotics that inhibit the activity of DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV, enzymes involved in DNA replication and repair. Levofloxacin is effective against a wide range of bacteria and is commonly used to treat respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, and skin infections. It works by killing the bacteria or preventing their growth, thus helping to alleviate the infection.
