    Explanation
    The statement is true because rifabutin and streptomycin are indeed second-line drugs used in the treatment of tuberculosis. Rifabutin is a bactericidal antibiotic that is effective against both drug-susceptible and drug-resistant strains of TB. Streptomycin, on the other hand, is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that is primarily used in combination with other drugs for the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). These second-line drugs are reserved for cases where the first-line drugs have failed or are not effective, and they play a crucial role in the management of TB.

    Rate this question:

  • 43. 

    In treating TB; Two phases are sed, the initial phase uses at least three drugs and a continuation phase uses two drugs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the treatment for tuberculosis (TB) typically involves two phases. In the initial phase, at least three drugs are used to attack the TB bacteria and prevent them from becoming resistant to the medication. This phase usually lasts for about two months. After the initial phase, the continuation phase begins, which involves using two drugs to further eliminate any remaining bacteria and prevent a relapse. This phase usually lasts for about four to seven months. Therefore, the statement is correct in stating that two phases are involved in treating TB, with the initial phase using at least three drugs and the continuation phase using two drugs.

    The following antibiotic should be avoided in pregnancy; Trimethropin

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Trimethoprim should be avoided in pregnancy because it is classified as a category C drug by the FDA, meaning that it has shown adverse effects on animal fetuses but there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. It can interfere with the development of the baby's blood cells and increase the risk of birth defects. Therefore, it is generally recommended to avoid using trimethoprim during pregnancy unless the potential benefits outweigh the risks.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Amoxicillin is not a macrolide. It is a penicillin-type antibiotic that is commonly used to treat bacterial infections. Macrolides, on the other hand, are a different class of antibiotics that include drugs like erythromycin and azithromycin. Therefore, the statement "Amoxicillin is a macrolide" is false.

    Amoxicillin; Is  beta- lactamase resistant

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Amoxicillin is not beta-lactamase resistant. Beta-lactamase is an enzyme produced by bacteria that can break down the beta-lactam ring in antibiotics, rendering them ineffective. While amoxicillin is a beta-lactam antibiotic, it is not resistant to beta-lactamase. Therefore, it can be inactivated by this enzyme, making the statement false.
