Pathogenic bacterium that cause typhoid fever in human being is
Typhoid fever in human being is caused by Salmonella typhi. The pathogen enters to small intestine through food and contaminated water and migrates to other organs through blood.
Alzheimer disease in humans is associated with the deficiency of______.
Alzheimer disease is a neurological disorder in which the death of brain cells causes memory loss and cognitive decline. It is caused in human due to deficiency of acetylcholine.
Hemozoin is released into blood during the infection of Plasmodium vivax every___.
Plasmodium vivax protozoa cause malaria in human beings having high fever and chill effect at the regular interval of time. Hemozoin is released in blood stream by plasmodium that cause high fever at the interval of 48 hours.
From what Lysergic acid is formed?
Lysergic acid is formed by ergot fungi. Ergot fungi refers to a group of fungi of genus Claviceps. The most common is Clevicepspurpuea. It causes ergotism in man and other mammals.
Goitre can occur as a consequence of all the following except:
Goitre is the enlargement of thyroid gland which occurs due to deficiency of iodine in the body. Iodine is needed for the synthesis of thyroid hormone. When the iodine levels are low, thyroid gland becomes hyper active and enlarged to compensate for the deficiency of thyroid hormone in the body. The enlarged thyroid gland is visible as a swelling in the throat known as goitre.
Grave's disease or exophthalmic goitre occurs due to over secretion of thyroid hormone as the thyroid gland becomes hyper active. In exophthalmic goitre, protrusion of eyeballs occur due to deposition of excess fat behind the eyes.
Thyroid gland may also become hyper active due to hypersecretion of TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) from anterior pituitary and this can occur due to pituitary adenoma (benign tumours of pituitary gland).
Excessive intake of exogenous thyroxine can't cause goitre.
So, the correct answer is 'Excessive intake of exogenous thyroxine'.
The first antibiotic was discovered by___?

Antibodies in our body are complex
Antibodies in our body are present in the blood in form of glycoproteins. They produce antigens in response to foreign particles to provide immunity against the pathogen.
Where memory cells are formed?
Memory cells are formed in lymphocytes of WBC. Immunization against the particular disease based on the function of memory cell induced due to mild, heat killed pathogen administrated during immunization.
Which one of the following acts as a physiological barrier to the entry of microorganisms in human body?
Physiological barriers to the entry of microorganisms in the human body are tears in eyes, saliva in mouth and HCl in the stomach. The enzymes lysozymes are found in tears and saliva and inhibit the synthesis of peptidoglycan present in the cell wall of microorganisms especially eubacteria. Disease causing microorganism enters through different routes into the body. Physiological barrier prevent their entry. Tears acts as physiological barrier for entry of pathogen.
Assertion: Many visitors to the hills suffer from skin and respiratory allergy problems.
Reason: Conifer trees produce a large quantity of wind-borne pollen grains.
Skin and respiratory allergy problems arise in hilly areas due to allergen present in these areas. Allergen induce inflammatory reaction in the body.

Carcinoma refers to
Malignant tumors of the skin or mucous membrane are called carcinoma. The physical, chemical or biological agents that convert normal cell into cancerous cell are called carcinogens.
Cancer cells are more damaged by radiations while others are not because cancer cells are
Cancer cells divide rapidly and hence they are said to be more active with less prominent nucleus and low density cytoplasm. Hence, they get destroyed easily by laser treatment. Moreover, the form lumb in a certain place which can be easily distinguished by the doctors.
