Section 14 : Modulation of Cellular Growth and Proliferation
This activity contains 19 questions.
is a characteristic of the drug not the microbe
can only be acquired through plasmid transfer
means that one species of microbe is resistant to all antibiotics
can be facilitated by the practices of health professionals
Which of the following requires monitoring while a client is on sulphonamide therapy?
all of the above
blood cell counts
Which of the following penicillins is ß-lactamase resistant?
Which of the following antimicrobial drug groups has a narrow spectrum of activity?
There are four generations of cephalosporins. A general characteristic of this group as you move from the first generation to the fourth is that:
they have shorter half-lives
they possess a broader spectrum of activity
there is less risk of allergic reaction
more of the later generation cephalosporins are available as oral preparations
Which one of the following groups of antimicrobial agents does not act by inhibiting protein synthesis?
Interferons a and ß stimulate immunity by:
inducing white blood cell differentiation
inhibiting viral replication
inducing B and T cell proliferation
inducing antibody production
A characteristic of vaccines made from live attenuated organisms is:
usually require more than one dose to induce a full immune response
trigger antibody production only
that they are prepared using recombinant DNA technology
trigger both antibody production and cell-mediated responses
Which of the following drugs would not be expected to suppress immunity?
Which adverse reaction of cytotoxic drugs is not considered an immediate effect?
suppression of bone marrow cells
Normal cell populations that are not highly susceptible to the effects of cytotoxic drugs are:
cells that form the lining of the gastrointestinal tract
In general, which of the following does not need to be monitored in a client receiving cytotoxic drug therapy?
all of the above
evidence of bruising
signs of influenza
Which of the following antimicrobial agents has a time-dependent activity on microorganisms?
the macrolide, erythromycin
the aminoglycoside, gentamicin
the aminoglycoside, tobramycin
the quinolone, norfloxacin
Cross-sensitivity occurs between penicillin agents and other antimicrobial groups. Which of the following antimicrobial agents is not associated with cross-sensitivity with penicillin agents?
When using isoniazid for the treatment of tuberculosis, which of the following vitamins from the vitamin B group is also recommended to reduce the risk of peripheral neuropathy?
When using oseltamivir to treat influenza, it should be taken no later than _____ hours after the onset of infection for maximum benefit.
The corticosteroids prednisolone and dexamethasone are used in preference to other corticosteroids for transplant rejection because they:
produce less sodium retention
tend to produce less localised infection
produce a lower incidence of peptic ulceration
produce a lower incidence of glaucoma
Which one of the following statements is correct regarding somatic gene therapy?
Genes are inserted into body cells, but the benefits do not transfer to the next generation.
It has generated serious ethical concerns.
It is suitable for multi-gene diseases.
It involves inserting genes into gametes so that they are passed on to the next generation.
Which of the following is a problem associated with synthetic delivery methods in gene therapy?
stable gene integration
the potential for infection to develop
cheap to produce on a large scale
the potential to induce mutations
