 1. Ans: a.Glutamic acid, glycine and cysteine
   Exp: Glutathione is a collective term to refer to the tripeptide Lgamma- glutamyl-L-cysteinylglycine in both its reduced and dimeric forms. Monomeric glutathione is also known as reduced glutathione and its dimer is also known as oxidized glutathione, glutathione disulfide and diglutathione. Glutathinone is present in tissues in concentrations as high as one millimoloar. Glutathione is present in the diet in amounts usually less than 100 milligrams dailyGlutathione also plays roles in catalysis, metabolism, signal transduction, gene expression and apoptosis. It is a cofactor for glutathione S-transferases, enzymes which are involved in the detoxification of xenobiotics, including carcinogenic genotoxicants, and for the glutathione peroxidases, crucial selenium-containing antioxidant enzymes. The liver is the principal site of glutathione synthesis. The consequences of a functional glutathione deficiency, which results in tissue oxidative stress, can be seen in some pathological conditions. This condition is characterized by a hemolytic anemia. Chronic functional glutathione deficiency is also associated with immune disorders, an increased incidence of malignancies, and in the case of HIV disease, probably accelerated pathogenesis of the disease. Acute manifestations of functional glutathione deficiency can be seen in those who have taken an overdosage of acetaminophen. This results in depletion of glutathione in the hepatocytes, leading to liver failure and death, if not promptly treated. Glutathione is an orphan drug for the treatment of AIDS associated cachexia. Prodrugs of gamma-L-glutamyl-L-cysteine are being evaluated as anticataract agents. Glutathione has antioxidant, detoxification immunomodulatory, activities have beneficial effects on sperm motility and in the protection against noise-induced hearing loss

2. Ans: c. Posterior eccentric interferences are removed, resulting in less muscle stress
   Exp: There is, however, a tendency to produce more horizontal chewing cycles, and therefore, wear on the teeth usually continues. To derive benefits from occlusal equilibration, the anterior teeth as well as the posterior teeth should make anterior teeth as well as the posterior teeth should make simultaneous contact with the opposing teeth when the condyles are in centric position.

3. Ans: b. Middle meningeal
   Exp: The third or pterygopalatine portion lies in the pterygopalatine fossa in relation with the pterygopalatine ganglion. The   middle meningeal artery is typically the first branch of the first part (retromandibular part) of the maxillary artery; one of the two terminal branches of the external carotid artery Branches include:

·       Sphenopalatine artery, terminal branch
·       Descending palatine artery
·       Infraorbital artery

The CGD may result from genetic defects in atleast four different components of the multicompotent NADPH oxidase system. Normal Range 2% to 8% segmented neutrophils reduce dye.

5. Ans: b. Blood viscosity Hematosis is: is:-
·       formation of blood cells in the living body (especially in the bone marrow)
·       the conversion of  chyle  into blood.
·       The arterialization of the blood in the lungs; the formation of blood in general
·       Conversion of the venous blood in arterial that takes place during the respiratory process
   Exp: The effectiveness of the hematosis strongly is also bound to which ventilation is known like relation perfusión, this is the relation between the air volume that circulate around the alveoli and the amount of blood that circulates around the pulmonary capillaries. This relation is also altered in certain diseases and by the corporal shifts of position, which explains so that some respiratory diseases worsen when placing to the patient in dorsal position (recostado on the back) and improve when placing the patient On guard seated

6. Ans: a. Alveolar osteitis
   Exp: This condition, also known as dry socket, results when a normal clot fails to form in the socket of a recently extracted tooth. Since this condition is usually very painful, always consider it a serious emergency.
   SYMPTOMS—A patient presenting with a dry socket will usually have a history of extrac- tion within 5 days; a complaint of excruciating, constant pain; and the loss of a blood clot or the failure of a clot to form. SIGNS—Upon examination, you will prob- ably note the absence of a blood clot in the socket of a recently extracted tooth; however, the socket may contain food debris. Alveolar bone may be visible in the socket, and you may smell foul breath. The patient’s temperature is probably elevated.
   TREATMENT—Gently rinse the socket with warm and press the gauze between two dry gauze pads to remove excess moisture. Place a strip of surgical gauze loosely in the socket. Do not exert pressure on the socket when placing the strip. Have the patient return daily. Clean the socket and change the dressing until the condition is corrected

8. Ans: b. Bulbar palsy
   Exp: He is suffering from progressive bulbar palsy Bulbar palsy is a collection of signs and symptoms (that is, a syndrome) which may be associated with a particular disease. Bulbar palsy can be a part of ALS, stroke, inflammatory diseases, etc. Bulbar refers to the lower brainstem, which is the control center for the cranial nerves 7-12. Palsy mean weakness. That is, if muscles controlled by cranial nerves 7-12 are weak, then you talk about a bulbar palsy.Symptoms include trouble speaking, swallowing, coughing, using the tongue, and some trouble with facial expression. Bulbar palsy is when the signs point directly to brainstem or lower cranial nerve damage. Pseudobulbar palsy results when the connections from the cerebral cortex (above) are disrupted, so the voluntary control is non functioning but there is no intrinsic damage to the brainstem or cranial nerves themselves. Pseudobulbar palsy is seen in certain cases involving strokes on both hemispheres of the brain, and in certain degenerative disorders. Bulbar Palsy is an assortment of signs and symptoms, not the name of a precise disease.

·         If you have mouth lesions, lidocaine mouth washes may numbthe area temporarily and make eating more comfortable.
·         Topical corticosteroids (such as triamcinolone acetonide cream) or oral corticosteroids (such as prednisone) may be prescribed to reduce inflammation and suppress immune responses. Corticosteroids may be injected directly into a lesion. 
·         Topical retinoic acid cream (a form of vitamin A) and other ointments or creams may reduce itching and inflammation and may aid healing. Occlusive dressings may be placed over topical medications to protect the skin from scratching.
·         Ultraviolet light therapy may be beneficial in some cases.

13. Ans: a. Clostridia
   EXP: Endospores are bacterial structures (resting cells) formed by a few groups of bacteria as intracellular structures, but ultimately they are released as free endospores. Biologically, endospores are a fascinating type of cell. Endospores exhibit no signs of life, being described as cryptobiotic. They are highly resistant to environmental stresses such as high temperature (some endospores can be boiled for hours and retain their viability), irradiation, strong acids, disinfectants, etc. They are probably the most durable cell produced in nature. Although cryptobiotic, they retain viability indefinitely such that under appropriate environmental conditions, they germinate back into vegetative cells. Endospores are formed by two genera of Gram Gram-positive bacteria: Bacillus, the aerobic sporeformers, and Clostridium, the anaerobic sporeformers sporeformers. Both genera contain pathogens, and the endospores produced by these bacteria invariably play some role in the toxicity, transmission or survival of the pathogen.

14. Ans: b. Focal chronic sclerosing osteomyelitis

   Exp: After a thorough analysis of the patients problem the form of the appliance is considered. The appliance must correct the problem. The analytical process should show the directions and the distances sought in any tooth movements. The limiting factors include those inherent in the appliance, the patient, and the operator.

28. Ans: b. Patient with acute respiratory infection
   Exp: Indications and Contraindications for the Use of General Anesthesia and Sedation in Children, Adults, and the Geriatric Population The decision to use a particular technique in a certain age group is based on the following: Adults General anesthesia for healthy (ASA class I or II) patients may be indicated when there is greater complexity of the procedure, higher levels of preoperative anxiety, or a greater need for a painfree operative period. A contraindication to local anesthesia might also require that a general anesthetic be administered. General anesthesia is contraindicated in patients who are not healthy (ASA class III or IV) for example any acute respiratory infection Geriatric Patients The indications for use of sedation or general anesthesia for the geriatric patient are basically the same as for other adults. Contraindica Contraindications tions to the use of sedation or general anesthesia for older patients are based almost entirely on the nature and severity of such risk factors Pediatric Patients The dentist's need for a cooperative and quiescent patient for the rendering of high-quality care is a prime indication for the use of sedation or general anesthesia in some children. These modalities tend to reduce fear and anxiety and assist the uncooperative child to accept and continue to receive regular dental care. Pediatric patients with extensive and complicated treatment needs, with acute pain and/or trauma, as well as those who are physically disabled or mentally retarded, may require sedation or general anesthesia. At times, the very young child (up to 3 years of age) and those with limited or compromised ability to comprehend and communicate also are candidates for such procedures. Additionally, there may be an indication for sedation or general anesthesia when the child would be better served by increasing the length of the appointment time and thus reducing the number of visits to accomplish the required treatment. Although the presence of a severe, compromising medical condition is generally a contraindication to sedation, some patients in this category may benefit from its use. These children should be managed in close cooperation with the physician involved in their medical care. While not necessarily contraindicated in the dental office, general anesthesia in the very young child often is best managed in the hospital or a similar setting, especially for lengthy restorative procedures. In all children, severe, compromising medical conditions contraindicate general anesthesia in the dental office.

33. Ans: d. All of the above
   Exp: The objectives of a complete intra oral roentgenographic examination are to locate areas of infection and pathology; to reveal the presence of root fragments, foreign objects, bone spicules, and irregular ridge formations; to reveal the presence and extent of caries and the relation of the carious lesion to the pulp; to permit evaluation of existing restorations as to evidence of recurrent caries, marginal leakage, and overhanging gingival margins, to reveal the presence of root canal fillings; to evaluate periodontal conditions present and to establish the need and possibilities for treatment; and to evaluate the alveolar support of abutment teeth.

34. Ans: d. All of the above
   Exp: Elastic materials are the only ones that can be withdrawn from tooth and tissue undercuts without permanent deformation and the only impression materials suitable for impressions of irregular contours of oral tissues. the elastic materials are most commonly used fro the making of impression for partial dentures.

35. Ans: b. By placing occlusal area . areas close to their support
   Exp: Overdentures appear to exhibit better retention than complete dentures. The tooth roots offer more discrete discriminatory input than the oral mucosa. Therefore, the periodontal ligament plays a role in the efficiency of muscular activity during chewing in patient wearing over dentures.

36. Ans: d. All of the above
   Exp: Therapeutic occlusion is one produced by the dentist whichconforms to the physiologic needs of the patient. A therapeutic occlusion is a well balanced and stable occlusion but is not an ideal occlusion.

37. Ans: c. Endocrine disturbance
   Exp: Most complete denture problems are related to depleted bone support, which is generally  accompanied by friable mucosa and altered neuromuscular control

38. Ans: d. Produces an artificial appearance to the dentures.
   Exp: The positions of the teeth in a full denture bear a direct relationship to abuse of the denture- supporting tissues because the tooth positions have a direct effect on the stability of the denture during function

39. Ans: d. Adulthood .
   Exp: Usually when the deciduous teeth erupt, they colonise and then increase in number.

40. Ans: d. They are all of the above
   Exp: Glycerol either derivates of lecithin (phosphatidylcholine)are widely distributed in animal tissues. The glycerol either derivatives occur in erythrocytes and bone marrow

41. Ans: d. All of the above
   Exp: Numerous factors regulate the rates of fatty acid synthesis, the conversion of excess carbohydrate to fatty acids, and the storage of lipid. The initial entry of glucose (dietary carbohydrate) into the cells is dependent upon the action of insulin which controls the availability of excess carbohydrate for glycogen synthesis. A key enzyme for regulating the rates of fatty and degradation and synthesis is isocitrate dehydrogenase of the citric acid cycle.

42. Ans: d. Disturbances in oral physiology
   Exp: Proteins are large, complex, colloidal molecules formed form simple units (amino acids), are insoluble in water but soluble in organic solvents; contain or combined with one or more fatty acids; and include only compounds utilizable by or occurring in biological systems

43. Ans: d. The coronoid process
   Exp: The crest mesenchymal cells of the visceral arches give rise to skeletal components such as the temporary visceral arch cartilages (Meckel’ s cartilage), middle ear cartilage, and mandibular bones

44. Ans: d. None of the above.
 Exp: The hydrogen ion concentration of gastric juice is 106 times greater than that of plasma. Secretion of 1 liter of gastric juice requires he expenditure of at least 1500 calories if the process were 100% efficient (assuming plasma to be the source of hydrogen ions)

45. Ans: a. May result in muscular im . imbalance, trismus, and balance, pain
   Exp: Occlusal harmony in complete denture is necessary if the dentures are to be comfortable, to function efficiently, and to preserve the supporting structures. It is difficult to find occlusal discrepancies intraorally with complete dentures

46. Ans: a. Smaller than the actual focal spot
   Exp: the projected focal spot area, as seen from the centre of the X-ray field. In most X-ray tubes, the anode surface is placed at an angle to the central beam of the X-ray field, typically 8 to 17 degrees, depending on the application. The actual focal spot on the anode surface is elongated. However, it is projected as a square in the central part of the radiation field. The (virtual) size of this projected focal spot is called the effective focal spot.

47. Ans: d. Schistosomiasis
   Exp: Schistosoma infections are contracted through contact with contaminated water. The parasite in its infective stages is called a cercaria. It swims freely in open bodies of water. On contact with humans, the parasite burrows into the skin, matures into another larval stage (schistosomula), then migrates to the lungs and liver (where it matures into the adult form). The adult worm then migrates to the anatomic area of its preference, depending on which species is involved. Likely areas include the bladder, rectum, intestines, liver, portal venous system, spleen, and lungs.

48. Ans: a. Solitary bone cyst

49. Ans: b. Should not be reliev relieved routinely ed
   Exp: The anterior sulcus extension begins from slightly anterior to the mental foramen to the same relative position on the opposite side of the arch. Surgical correction of the denture – bearing area is accomplished by the following: the anterior sulcus slide and the reverse anterior sulcus slide, the mucosal graft.

50. Ans: b. Becomes transformed into epithelial sheath of Hertwing
   Exp: The cervical loop is located at the border of the wide basal opening of the enamel organ, where the inner enamel epithelium reflects onto the outer enamel epithelium. When the crown of the tooth has been formed, the cells of the cervical loop give rise to Hertwig’s epithelial root sheath
