Fuel for colonocytes

Q) Primary fuel for colonocytes is 

a) Glucose

b) Lactate

c) Butyrate

d) Fats

Ans c ) Butyrate

Butyrate For the fermentable complex carbohydrates available, colonic flora produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs).

Butyrate, an SCFA, is the principal source of nutrition for the colonocyte.
Mammalian cells do not produce butyrate, the colonic epithelium and luminal bacteria form an essential and elegant symbiotic relationship.

Antibiotics disrupt this cohabitation—decreased bacteria leads to less butyrate, which, in turn, negatively affects colonocyte function leading to diarrhea.

Lymphatic Spread carcinoma Prostate

Q) Most common lymph node involved in carcinoma prostate is
a. Obturator
b. Iliac
c. Periprostatic
d. Perivesical

a ✅

Lymphatic spread may occur (1) via lymphatic vessels passing to the obturator fossa or along the sides of the rectum to the lymph nodes beside the internal iliac vein and in the hollow
of the sacrum

Also lymphatics that pass over the seminal vesicles and follow the vas deferens for a short distance to
drain into the external iliac lymph nodes.

From retroperitoneal lymph nodes, the mediastinal nodes and occasionally the supraclavicular nodes may become implicated.

a) Endothelial damage

b) Slow blood flow

c) Platelet defects

d) Hypercoagulable state

"More Questions on Periop Management"

c Platelet defects

Virchow triad (venous stasis, endothelial injury, and hypercoagulability) describes the factors contributing to venous clot formation and thromboembolism

Platelet defects are associated with arterial thrombosis and not venous

He is known as "the father of modern pathology" and as the founder of social medicine, and to his colleagues, the "Pope of medicine"

Antigen Presenting cells

b) Natural killer cells

c) Macrophages

d) Monocytes

Ans a 

Dendritic cells are specialized macrophages that are regarded as professional APCs. They are the most potent cells that present antigen

NK cells ( part of innate immunity) are large granular lymphocytes with potent cytolytic function that constitute a critical component of innate immunity.

a) Zinc

b) copper

c) Molybdenum

d) Selenium

MCQs on Nutrition and Periop management

Ans ) B Copper

Copper Promotes cross-linking of collagen and elastin synthesis and  scavenges free radical

Its deficiency causes Skeletal demineralization, impaired glucose tolerance, anemia, neutropenia,
leukopenia, changes in skin and hair pigmentation also it is linked to fatal arrhythmias
