pharm exam 3- eicosanoids
Eicosanoids are metabolites of __________ _______ that can be synthesized and released from nearly ___ cells to affect a broad range of biological.
Autocoids are ________ which are biologically active compounds that are _______ synthesized and released. they act _________. they have a short _____-_____ and duration of action.
biologically active eicosanoids include:
PG, TX, LT
Actions of Eicosanoids
bronchial smooth muscle
Indirect inhibitors of eicosanoids:
fx cox1/2, lipocortin, Hcz
hydrocortisone/cortisol, prednisone, decxamethasone
glucocorticoids act by modifying gene expression. T/F?
glucocorticoids cellular actions:
glucocorticoids clinical uses
glucocorticoids side fx
long term= cushings syndrome
directly inhibit Cox-1 and Cox-2
which NSAIDS are irreversible
which NSAIDS are reversible
reversibly binding NSAIDS are generally _______ acting.
are reversible NSAIDS useful as blocker of clot formation?
NO, only irreversible are
Stephens johnson syndrome can occur with?
what are the NSAID Acetic Acids and Pyrroles?
Indomethacin, Sulindac, Ketorolac
What are the NSAID PROprinoic acids?
are proprinoic acids reversible binders of cox1/2?
Are NSAID propinoic acids useful in blocking clot formation?
Acetaminophen is believed to act by inhibiting _____, CNS specific.
weak inhibition of prostanoid synthesis
blocks prostanoid effects on T and pain in CNS
Is Acetaminophen useful as an anti-inflammatory?
Acetaminophen has the risk of __________, but not ________ or _________ like most NSAIDS.
blockade of plt aggregation
What are the NSAID
what is the cox 2 hypothesis?
cox 2 more specific to inflammatory response
what is the
NSAID Selective COX-2 inhibitor
mechanism of action?
REVERSIBLE direct binding of Cox-2. also binds cox 1 but is 30x more selective for cox 2
What is the advantage of using NSAID Selective COX-2 inhibitors?
REDUCED neg GI fx
Celebrex is ____x more selective for Cox-2
VIOXX is ____x more selective for Cox-2
BEXTRA is ____x more selective for Cox-2
ARCOXIA is ____x more selective for Cox-2
Cox-2 selective inhibitors cause 2-3 fold increase in risk for
which Cox-2 selective inhibitor is on market now?
COX-2 is being studied to treat
cancer and alzhiemers
5'-Lipoxygenase inhibitor prototypes
5'-Lipoxygenase inhibitor prototypes are useful in tx of astham and anaphylaxis. Explain why:
Leukotrienes are the most powerful constrictors of bronchial smooth muscle, and this inhibits the enzyme that makes leukotrienes.
5'-Lipoxygenase inhibitor use:
long-term asthma management
5'-Lipoxygenase inhibitor prototypes side fx
short-acting-4x daily (compliance)
