    the exam was confusing actually.

    may be not more than 5 questions from onexamination.com

    one question was about a patient who was recently diagnosed with small cell lung carcinoma started on etoposide and cisplatin developed tingling sensations in his hands and feet. cisplatin side effect?
  2. cisplatin even though does not have much bone marrow suppression can be neurotoxic

    the warfarin is interacting with carnberry juice as there was a question asking about it

    the evidence is here:

    Possible Interaction Between Cranberry Juice and Drug Warfarin
    The British Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) reported five cases that suggest a food-drug interaction between cranberry juice and warfarin that could cause internal hemorrhage.

    One of these cases involved a man who suffered a fatal internal hemorrhage. His blood clotting levels increased dramatically six weeks after starting to drink cranberry juice.

    In another case, blood clotting levels increased less dramatically but returned to the normal range after cranberry juice was discontinued.

    Many women drink cranberry juice to prevent bladder infections.

    hi guest;

    i think regarding the screening for hemocromatosis, the question was asking specifically about screening the family members , which i think is the genotype for c282y mutations as transferring saturation is used for screening the general populaton?

    what do u thin?
  9. Guest

    Guest Guest

    yea i agree wid u

    was under time pressure at that time in exam

    didnt look for n analysed all options
    screening for hemachromatosis is by

    TRANSFERRIN SATURATION for general population

    GENETIC ANALYSIS for family member of affected person

    Homocysteine is converted into methionine by addition of methyl group...n vit B12 is a cofactor for this reaction

    def will lead to dec conversion n thus inc levels of homocysteine

    Hi doc5,

    increased accumulation of homocystiene is seen in folate deficiency and may be in severe B12 deficiency.

    What do u think about increased LDH?

    It's also a possible answer!!
