Hi bobbym,

#1071. Name the medical phrase / abbreviation :  A medical test in which glucose is given and blood samples taken afterward to determine how quickly it is cleared from the blood. The test is usually used to test for diabetes, insulin resistance, impaired beta cell function, and sometimes reactive hypoglycemia and acromegaly, or rarer disorders of carbohydrate metabolism. Many variations of the GTT have been devised over the years for various purposes, with different standard doses of glucose, different routes of administration, different intervals and durations of sampling, and various substances measured in addition to blood glucose.

Re: Doc, Doc!

Hi bobbym,

The Answer is correct! Excellent, bobbym!

#1072. Name the medical term -  A process for removing waste and excess water from the blood and is used primarily as an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with kidney failure. It may be used for those with an acute disturbance in kidney function (acute kidney injury, previously acute renal failure) or progressive but chronically worsening kidney function—a state known as chronic kidney disease stage 5 (previously chronic renal failure or end-stage renal disease). The latter form may develop over months or years, but in contrast to acute kidney injury is not usually reversible and it is regarded as a "holding measure" until a kidney transplant can be performed or sometimes as the only supportive measure in those for whom a transplant would be inappropriate.

Re: Doc, Doc!

Hi,

The Answer #1072 is correct! Excellent, bobbym and David!

#1073. Brucellosis, Bang's disease, Crimean fever, Gibraltar fever, rock fever, or undulant fever, is a highly contagious zoönosis caused by ingestion of unpasteurized milk or undercooked meat from infected animals or close contact with their secretions. Brucella species are small, Gram-negative, nonmotile, nonspore-forming, rod-shaped (coccobacilli) bacteria. They function as facultative intracellular parasites, causing chronic disease, which usually persists for life. Four species infect humans: B. melitensis, B. abortus, B. suis, and B. canis. B. melitensis is the most virulent and invasive species; it usually infects goats and occasionally sheep. B. abortus is less virulent and is primarily a disease of cattle. B. suis is of intermediate virulence and chiefly infects pigs. B. canis affects dogs. Symptoms include profuse sweating and joint and muscle pain. Brucellosis has been recognized in animals and humans since the 20th century.
What what other name/names is it known as?

Re: Doc, Doc!

Hi bobbym,

#1074. By what other name is it known as? The hindbrain  is a developmental categorization of portions of the central nervous system in vertebrates. It includes the medulla, pons, and cerebellum. Together they support vital bodily processes. The hindbrain can be subdivided in a variable number of transversal swellings called rhombomeres. In the human embryo eight rhombomeres can be distinguished, from caudal to rostral: Rh8-Rh1. Rostrally, the isthmus demarcates the boundary with the midbrain.

Hi bobbym,

#1075. By what other  medical term / phrase is it also known as? Colloid osmotic pressure is a form of osmotic pressure exerted by proteins, notably albumin, in a blood vessel's plasma (blood/liquid) that usually tends to pull water into the circulatory system. It is the opposing force to hydrostatic pressure. It has a major effect on the glomerular filter pressure.

Re: Doc, Doc!

Hi bobbym,

The Answer #1075 is correct! Fantastic!

#1076. Name the Biological term - Structure in a chromosome that holds together the two chromatids (the daughter strands of a replicated chromosome). It is the point of attachment of the kinetochore, a structure to which the microtubules of the mitotic spindle become anchored. The spindle is the structure that pulls the chromatids to opposite ends of the cell during the cell division processes of mitosis and meiosis. Once separated, each chromatid becomes a chromosome. Thus, when the cell divides, both daughter cells have complete sets of chromosomes.

Hi bobbym,

#1077. Name the disease - A rare X-linked recessive inherited condition that affects the proximal renal tubules of the kidney. It is one cause of Fanconi syndrome, and is characterized by tubular proteinuria, excess calcium in the urine, formation of calcium kidney stones, nephrocalcinosis, and chronic kidney failure. It is often used to describe an entire group of familial disorders, including X-linked recessive nephrolithiasis with kidney failure, X-linked recessive hypophosphatemic rickets, and both Japanese and idiopathic low-molecular-weight proteinuria.

Hi bobbym,

#1078. Name the medical term / phrase -  A complex network of nerves (a nerve plexus) located in the abdomen, near where the celiac trunk, superior mesenteric artery, and renal arteries branch from the abdominal aorta. It is behind the stomach and the omental bursa, and in front of the crura of the diaphragm, on the level of the first lumbar vertebra.
The plexus is formed (in part) by the greater and lesser splanchnic nerves of both sides, and fibers from the anterior and posterior vagal trunks.
