Reyes syndrome is associated with what substance? Salicylate/aspirin
What blood group antigen is CA 19-9 derived from? Le-a
Alpha-fetoprotein is useful in detecting which carcinoma? hepatocellular
The biochemical marker CA 125 is expressed by what tissue? epithelial cells of the ovaries
Biomarkers designed with the prefix letters CA contain a significant amount of what compound? Carbohydrate
Diagnostic sensitivity represents what condition? Positively (or positivity?) in disease
Measuring serum levels of CA 15-3 is clinically useful for what reason? Monitoring the clinical course of patients with metastatic breast cancer.
Alpha-fetoprotein is a marker for what cancer? hepatocellular carcinoma
Cancer-antigen 125 (CA-125) is a marker for what cancer? ovarian
Carbohydrate Antigen 15-3 (CA 15-3) is a marker for what cancer? breast
Human epididymisprotein (HE4) is a specific marker for what cancer? ovarian
BRCA1 and BRCA2 are gene mutations associated with what cancer? breast
Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) is a marker for what cancer? colorectal (also lung, breast, and gastrointestinal tumors)
CA 19-9 is a marker for what cancer? pancreatic (LE-a-b- people do not express this marker)
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a marker for what cancer? trophoblastic tumors (but not FDA approved)

Digoxin is what type of drug? cardiac glycosides
Quinidine, Procainamide, Dispyramide, are all what class of drugs? antiarrythmics
Vancomycin and aminoglycosides are both what type of drugs? antibiotics
Phenobarbital, Phenytoin, Carbamazepine, Ethosuximide, and Valproic acid are all what kind of drugs? antiepileptic drugs

Drug X has a half-life of 15 hours. When will the patient reach a steady state in the therapeutic range? Is it 1 day, 3 days, 5 days, or 7 days? 5 days (since 4 is not an answer)
The factor for figuring out the time needed to achieve a steady state is ? 5-7 : use the factor that matches the choices given on the test : multiply the number of hours by the factor, then divide by 24 to find out how many days.
If a patient has a renal insufficiency, would he reach the steady state sooner or later? Sooner, because the kidneys would not remove the drug in the urine as quickly.
Which is a faster means of drug absorption: IV or inhalation? Both are about the same.
