  • 2. 

    Maximum inhibition of endotoxins 

    • A.

      Reduce Fever

    • B.

      Reduce congestion

    • C.

      Reduce cough

    • D.

      All the statements are true.

    Correct Answer
    D. All the statements are true.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that all the statements are true. This means that reducing fever, congestion, and cough can all lead to the maximum inhibition of endotoxins. Endotoxins are toxins released by certain bacteria that can cause fever, inflammation, and other symptoms. By reducing these symptoms, the body's immune response can be better regulated, leading to a more effective inhibition of endotoxins.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The inhibition of endotoxins is done by

    • A.

      Ofloxacin

    • B.

      Cefpodoxime

    • C.

      Ofloxacin+Cefpodoxime

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. Ofloxacin
    Explanation
    Ofloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is effective against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Endotoxins are lipopolysaccharides found in the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria and can cause inflammation and other harmful effects. Ofloxacin inhibits the growth and replication of these bacteria, thereby reducing the production and release of endotoxins. By doing so, it helps to prevent the harmful effects associated with endotoxins and promotes the resolution of bacterial infections.

      Excellent activity against Gm positive, Gm negative and atypical bacteria.

    Correct Answer
    D. Excellent activity against Gm positive, Gm negative and atypical bacteria.
    Explanation
    Ofloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that has excellent activity against gram positive, gram negative, and atypical bacteria. This means that it is effective against a wide range of bacteria, including those that have a thick outer cell wall (gram positive), those that have a thin outer cell wall (gram negative), and those that do not fit into either category (atypical). Its broad spectrum of activity makes it a versatile and effective treatment option for various bacterial infections.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Cefpodoxime does not cover which of the following bacteria

    • A.

      Streptococcus pneumonia

    • B.

      Klebsiella pneumonia

    • C.

      Hemophilus influenza

    • D.

      Mycoplasma pneumonia

    Correct Answer
    D. Mycoplasma pneumonia
    Explanation
    Cefpodoxime is an antibiotic that belongs to the cephalosporin class. It is effective against a wide range of bacteria, including Streptococcus pneumonia, Klebsiella pneumonia, and Hemophilus influenza. However, it does not cover Mycoplasma pneumonia. Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a bacteria that causes atypical pneumonia and is known to be resistant to many antibiotics, including cephalosporins. Therefore, cefpodoxime would not be effective in treating infections caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae.

  • 11. 

    Dispersibility is defined as, distributes as fine particles throughout a medium

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    The statement is true because dispersibility refers to the ability of a substance to distribute itself as fine particles throughout a medium. This means that the substance can be easily mixed or dispersed evenly in the medium, forming a homogeneous mixture.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Dispersibility for Cefpodoxime is all so very important because,

    • A.

      Cefpodoxime has a very high bio-availability

    • B.

      Solubility of Cefpodoxime is very poor

    • C.

      Cefpodoxime has very low bio-availability

    • D.

      Cefpodoxime is insoluble

    Correct Answer
    C. Cefpodoxime has very low bio-availability
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that Cefpodoxime has very low bio-availability. Bio-availability refers to the proportion of a drug that enters the systemic circulation and is able to have an active effect. In the case of Cefpodoxime, it has a low bio-availability, meaning that only a small amount of the drug is able to enter the systemic circulation and have an effect. This is an important consideration because it affects the effectiveness and dosage of the medication.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Solubility is directly proportional to dispersibility

    • A.

      FALSE

    • B.

      TRUE

    Correct Answer
    B. TRUE
    Explanation
    This statement is true because solubility refers to the ability of a substance to dissolve in a solvent, while dispersibility refers to the ability of a substance to form a homogeneous mixture when added to a solvent. When a substance is soluble, it can easily disperse and form a homogeneous mixture in a solvent, while insoluble substances do not dissolve and do not disperse well in a solvent. Therefore, solubility and dispersibility are directly proportional to each other.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Increased solubility increases the

    • A.

      Bio-availability

    • B.

      Peak Plasma Concentration

    • C.

      Half life of Cefpodoxime

    • D.

      First pass metabolism of Cefpodoxime

    Correct Answer
    A. Bio-availability
    Explanation
    Increased solubility refers to the ability of a substance to dissolve in a solvent. In the context of medication, increased solubility of a drug like Cefpodoxime can lead to an increase in its bio-availability. Bio-availability refers to the fraction of the administered dose of a drug that reaches the systemic circulation and is available to produce its desired effects. Therefore, if the solubility of Cefpodoxime is increased, more of the drug will be dissolved and absorbed into the bloodstream, resulting in a higher bio-availability.

    • A.

      A suspension

    • B.

      A dispersible tablet

    • C.

      Both tablet & suspension

    • D.

      A Readymix

    Correct Answer
    C. Both tablet & suspension
    Explanation
    Finecef gives the advantage of both tablet and suspension forms. This means that the medication is available in both tablet and liquid suspension forms, allowing patients to choose the most convenient option for them. Tablets are easy to take and can be easily carried around, while the suspension form is useful for patients who have difficulty swallowing tablets or need a lower dosage. Having both options available increases flexibility and ensures that patients can take the medication in a way that suits their needs.
