33 - smoking cessation mcq - pgi june 2008 mcqs

Q.2 Drugs used for smoking cessation?


ans is a)Varenicline

Varenicline is a nicotinic receptor partial agonist. In this respect, it is similar to cytisine and different from nicotinic antagonist, bupropion, and nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) like nicotine patches (commonly, "the patch") and nicotine gum. As a partial agonist, it both reduces cravings for and decreases the pleasurable effects of cigarettes and other tobacco products, and through these mechanisms, it can assist some patients in stopping smokingIndications
Varenicline is indicated for (suggested for use in) smoking cessation. It is an alternative to NRTs and agonist medication and has demonstrated greater efficacy than them in comparable studies.

Bupropion (INN; previously known as amfebutamone,Wellbutrin, Zyban) is an atypical antidepressant that acts as a norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitor, and nicotinic antagonist
Initially researched and marketed as an antidepressant, bupropion was subsequently found to be effective as a smoking cessation aid

32 - duret hemorrhage - PGI chandigarh june 2008 mcqs

Q.1Duret haemorrhage found in?
a] lungs
c] endocardium of heart

ans is d]Brain
Duret haemorrhages (also spelled, Duret hemorrhages) are small areas of bleeding in the ventral and paramedian parts of the upper brainstem, (midbrain and pons). They are secondary to raised intracranial pressure with formation of a transtentorial pressure cone involving the cerebral peduncles (crus cerebri) and other midbrain structures caused by raised pressure above the tentorium. Kernohan’s notch is a groove in the cerebral peduncle that may be caused by this displacement of the brainstem against the incisura of the tentorium. The resulting ipsilateral hemiparesis is a false localising sign (Collier 1904), known as the Kernohan-Woltman syndrome. This may succeed or accompany temporal lobe (uncal) herniation and subfalcian herniation secondary to a supratentorial mass.

answer : b . see this information from a site

We investigated the variations in the distribution of glycosaminoglycans (GAG) in the cervical, isthmic and corporeal stroma of the pregnant and non-pregnant human uterus. The GAG were measured in non-pregnant (n = 9) and pregnant (n = 14) cervices, in non-pregnant (n = 8) and pregnant (n = 6) uterine isthmus, and in non-pregnant (n = 12) and pregnant (n = 5) uterine corpus. Heparan sulfate is abundant in the isthmic and corporeal stroma. This has to be related to a larger content in blood vessels and muscular cells at this level than in the cervix. The distribution of hyaluronic acid and dermatan sulfate is the same in the cervix as in the corpus, but the amount of these GAGs is lower in the former, which could be due to a lower connective tissue content. Two of the main features of cervical maturation, increased hydration, and decreased dermatan sulfate concentration, were found also in the pregnant corporeal stroma. These results suggest that connective tissue maturation is not only a cervical phenomenon and could play a role in active and/or passive mechanical properties of the myometrium during late pregnancy and labor.
