Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which is the major causative pathogen of UTI

    • A.

      S.Typhi

    • B.

      H.Influenzae

    • C.

      Moraxella

    • D.

      E.Coli

    Correct Answer
    D. E.Coli
    Explanation
    E. Coli is the major causative pathogen of UTI. It is a type of bacteria that is commonly found in the gastrointestinal tract and can enter the urinary system, causing infection. E. Coli is responsible for approximately 80-90% of UTI cases. It can be transmitted through poor hygiene, sexual activity, or the use of catheters. E. Coli has the ability to adhere to the urinary tract lining and multiply, leading to inflammation and symptoms of UTI such as frequent urination, pain, and burning sensation.

    Balofox is superior to other conventional quinolones because 

    • A.

      It has additional coverage against Gram positive pathogens

    • B.

      It has low Photo toxicity

    • C.

      It has reduced CNS Toxicity

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Balofox is considered superior to other conventional quinolones because it has additional coverage against Gram positive pathogens, meaning it can effectively target a broader range of bacteria. Additionally, it has low photo toxicity, which means it is less likely to cause adverse reactions when exposed to sunlight. Furthermore, it has reduced CNS toxicity, indicating that it has a lower risk of causing harm to the central nervous system. Therefore, all of these factors contribute to Balofox's superiority over other quinolones.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of these quinolones has highest concentration in urine?

    • A.

      Ciprofloxacin

    • B.

      Gatifloxacin

    • C.

      Sparfloxacin

    • D.

      Norfloxacin

    Correct Answer
    A. Ciprofloxacin
    Explanation
    Ciprofloxacin has the highest concentration in urine compared to the other quinolones listed. This is because ciprofloxacin has a high renal clearance, meaning it is efficiently excreted by the kidneys into the urine. As a result, a larger proportion of the drug is eliminated through urine, leading to higher concentrations in the urine compared to other quinolones.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    As we move up in the generation of Cephalosporins from first to fourth

    • A.

      The Gram negative coverage decreases

    • B.

      The Gram negative coverage increases

    • C.

      The Gram positive coverage increases

    • D.

      All of the above are true

    Correct Answer
    B. The Gram negative coverage increases
    Explanation
    As we move up in the generation of Cephalosporins from first to fourth, the Gram negative coverage increases. This means that the higher generation cephalosporins are more effective against Gram negative bacteria compared to the lower generation ones. This is due to the development of new structural features in the higher generation cephalosporins that allow them to target and kill a broader range of Gram negative bacteria.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    In Children Cephalosporins are better than fluoroquinolones because

    • A.

      Fluoroquinolones are expensive

    • B.

      Not palatable

    • C.

      Not available in syrup

    • D.

      Not indicated in Children due to adverse effects

    Correct Answer
    D. Not indicated in Children due to adverse effects
    Explanation
    Fluoroquinolones are not indicated in children due to adverse effects. This means that they are not recommended for use in children because they can cause harmful side effects. Therefore, cephalosporins are a better option for children compared to fluoroquinolones. The other reasons given, such as being expensive, not palatable, and not available in syrup form, do not directly relate to why cephalosporins are better than fluoroquinolones in children.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of these Cephalosporins has highest half life of eight hours?

    • A.

      Cefixime

    • B.

      Cefpodoxime

    • C.

      Cephalexin

    • D.

      Ceftriaxone

    Correct Answer
    D. Ceftriaxone
    Explanation
    Ceftriaxone has the highest half-life of eight hours among the given options. The half-life of a drug refers to the time it takes for the concentration of the drug in the body to decrease by half. A longer half-life indicates that the drug remains in the body for a longer duration, leading to a sustained therapeutic effect. Therefore, Ceftriaxone is the correct answer as it has the highest half-life compared to Cefixime, Cefpodoxime, and Cephalexin.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these antibiotics has best action against Pseudomonas

    • A.

      Cefixime

    • B.

      Ciprofloxacin

    • C.

      Ofloxacin

    • D.

      Clavulanic acid

    Correct Answer
    B. Ciprofloxacin
    Explanation
    Ciprofloxacin is the best antibiotic against Pseudomonas because it is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that effectively targets and kills the bacteria. Pseudomonas is known to be resistant to many antibiotics, but ciprofloxacin has shown good efficacy against this particular bacteria. It is often used as a first-line treatment for Pseudomonas infections due to its high effectiveness and low resistance rates. Cefixime and Ofloxacin are not as effective against Pseudomonas, and Clavulanic acid is not an antibiotic but a beta-lactamase inhibitor used in combination with certain antibiotics to enhance their effectiveness.

    The tool available for improving product knowldge of my DSMs is 

    • A.

      Coaching to Excel VAF

    • B.

      Coaching to Excel Bank

    • C.

      Bank VAF

    • D.

      Knowledge Bank

    Correct Answer
    D. Knowledge Bank
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Knowledge Bank" because it is a tool that can be used to improve the product knowledge of DSMs (District Sales Managers). The Knowledge Bank is likely a repository of information and resources that DSMs can access to learn more about the products they are selling. This tool can help them stay updated on product features, benefits, and any updates or changes. By utilizing the Knowledge Bank, DSMs can enhance their understanding and expertise in order to effectively promote and sell the products.

    Zimnic CV is the protected Cefixime because

    • A.

      Clavulanic acid is protected by Bacteria

    • B.

      Bacteria is protected by antibiotic

    • C.

      Clavulanic acid protects Cefixime against Beta Lactamase enzyme

    • D.

      Cefixime protects Clavulanic acid against Beta Lactamase enzyme

    Correct Answer
    C. Clavulanic acid protects Cefixime against Beta Lactamase enzyme
    Explanation
    Clavulanic acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor, which means it can protect other antibiotics, such as Cefixime, from being broken down by beta-lactamase enzymes produced by bacteria. Beta-lactamase enzymes are capable of inactivating beta-lactam antibiotics, including Cefixime. Therefore, when Clavulanic acid is combined with Cefixime in Zimnic CV, it prevents the beta-lactamase enzymes from destroying Cefixime, allowing it to remain effective in treating bacterial infections.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The Cephalosporins belongs to the

    • A.

      Peniciliins

    • B.

      Betalactam Antibiotics

    • C.

      Quinolones

    • D.

      Monobactams

    Correct Answer
    B. Betalactam Antibiotics
    Explanation
    Cephalosporins belong to the group of betalactam antibiotics. Betalactam antibiotics are a class of antibiotics that have a beta-lactam ring in their chemical structure. This ring is responsible for their antibacterial activity. Cephalosporins are a type of betalactam antibiotic that are commonly used to treat various bacterial infections. They work by inhibiting the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall, leading to the death of the bacteria.
