  • 2. 

    pHENYTOIN CROSSES BBB

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Phenytoin is a medication that is known to cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB). The blood-brain barrier is a protective barrier in the brain that prevents certain substances from entering the brain tissue. However, some medications, like phenytoin, are able to cross this barrier and reach the brain. This is important for phenytoin because it is commonly used as an anticonvulsant medication to treat seizures, and it needs to reach the brain in order to be effective. Therefore, the statement that phenytoin crosses the BBB is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The process change in PACITANE is

    • A.

      Wet granulation to dry granulation

    • B.

      Wet granulation to direct compression

    • C.

      Direct compression to wet granulation

    • D.

      Direct granuation to direct compression

    Correct Answer
    B. Wet granulation to direct compression
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "wet granulation to direct compression." This means that the process in PACITANE has changed from using wet granulation to using direct compression. Wet granulation is a process where the active pharmaceutical ingredient and excipients are mixed with a liquid binder to form granules, which are then dried and compressed into tablets. Direct compression, on the other hand, involves directly compressing the blend of active ingredient and excipients into tablets without the need for wet granulation. This change in process may have been implemented to improve efficiency, reduce production time, or enhance the stability or bioavailability of the drug.

      60mg/2ml

    Correct Answer
    A. 100mg /2ml
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 100mg/2ml. This means that each 2ml of DILANTIN injection contains 100mg of PHENYTOIN.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The clinical trail- CLAYTON et-al study has been conducted for

    • A.

      4 weeks

    • B.

      8 weeks

    • C.

      1 week

    • D.

      12 weeks

    Correct Answer
    D. 12 weeks
    Explanation
    The clinical trial conducted by Clayton et al. lasted for 12 weeks. This duration was likely chosen to allow for a sufficient amount of time to observe and evaluate the effects of the treatment or intervention being tested. A longer trial period can provide more accurate and reliable data regarding the safety and efficacy of the treatment, as it allows for a better understanding of any potential long-term effects or benefits. Additionally, a 12-week trial duration may also be necessary to assess any potential side effects or adverse reactions that may occur over an extended period of time.

    • C.

      10 min

    • D.

      20 min

    Correct Answer
    D. 20 min
    Explanation
    The response to DILANTIN injection will be noted within 20 minutes. This means that after administering the injection, the effects or changes resulting from the medication will start to become apparent within a relatively short period of time, specifically within 20 minutes.

    ______________ corrects the deficiencies caused due to METFORMIN

    • A.

      Vitamin B1

    • B.

      Vitamin B6

    • C.

      Vitamin B12

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Vitamin B12
    Explanation
    Vitamin B12 corrects the deficiencies caused due to METFORMIN. Metformin is a medication commonly used to treat type 2 diabetes, but it can lead to a deficiency in vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is important for the proper functioning of the nervous system and the production of red blood cells. Therefore, taking vitamin B12 supplements can help correct the deficiencies caused by metformin and ensure that the body has enough of this essential vitamin.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The disintegration time has been increased from 10-15 min to 1 min in case of NEW PACITANE

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it states that the disintegration time has been increased from 10-15 min to 1 min in the case of NEW PACITANE. However, if the disintegration time has been increased, it would mean that it takes longer for the medication to disintegrate, not shorter. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Allow dissolution in the oral cavity without water
    B. Have smooth esophageal movement and less retention
    D. Are suitable for paranoid patients of Schizophrenia
    Explanation
    The rapidly disintegrating PACITANE TABLETS have the advantage of allowing dissolution in the oral cavity without water. This means that patients can take the medication easily and conveniently, even without access to water. These tablets also have the advantage of smooth esophageal movement and less retention, which means that they are less likely to cause discomfort or get stuck in the esophagus. Additionally, these tablets are suitable for paranoid patients of Schizophrenia, indicating that they are specifically designed to meet the needs of this particular patient population.

  • 11. 

    Patients with mood disorders are more responsive to pain

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Patients with mood disorders are more responsive to pain" is false. Research has shown that individuals with mood disorders, such as depression or anxiety, may actually experience a decreased sensitivity to pain. This could be due to alterations in the brain's pain processing pathways or the presence of certain neurotransmitters that can dampen pain signals. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that patients with mood disorders are more responsive to pain.

    • C.

      Enteric -coated

    • D.

      Sugar- coated

    Correct Answer
    B. Film-coated
