short Essay with Answers Bitter teste receptor (TAS2R) agonist work ?
via G-protein-phosphatidylinositol phosphate pathway leading to activation of Ca dependent K channel & subsequent hyperpolarization of smooth muscle cell.
27. During treatment of asthma, why we give chemotherapy?
give something agains the organism or allergen as: anti biotic , ant-viral , antifungal
28.which drugs are phosphodiesterase inhibitors ?
methylxanthine , mast cell stabilizer can we avoid local side effect of inhaled cortisone as candidiasis ?
By giving with it mouth wash
30.can we give aminophylline as ampoules?
No, as taking ampoules will cause direct death of the patient because it : has very narrow safety margin. So, it should be taken very cautiously in a very slow I.V fluid
