  1. 4 things used for Inflamm Bowel Disease
    • Aminosalicylates
    • Glucocoritcoids
    • Immunosupressants
    • Immunomodulators
  2. Aminosalicylates
    Suppresses prostaglandin synthesis and migration of inflamm cells

    where we start with IBD

    SE= nausea, fever, rash arthralgias
  3. Glucocorticoids used for anti-inflamm action of IBD
    • For acute symptoms only
    • avoid adrenal suppression b/c it is short acting 

    Dexamethazone / Decadron

    Buesonide / Entocort
  4. Immunosupressant for IBD
    • Not approved for IBD but used for long term suppression
    • takes up to 6 months to see effects

    •  = Azathioprine

    • stronger and faster that Azathioprine
    • Suppress T-cells and anti-inflamm process
    • for acute symptoms
    •  = Cyclosporine
  5. Immunomodulator
    • Inactivates TNF-a in IBS
    • => a primary inflamm mediator

    • = Infliximab / Remicade
  6. Prokinetic Agent in IBS
    increase tone and motility in IBD

    • Suppresses dopa and serotonin receptors 
    • *Inc. motility by enhancing action of ACh

    (used in pt with tube feeding and sluggish gut)
  7. Pancreatic Enzymes in IBS

    • calcineurin inhib
    • used in transplants
    • Does not cause bone marrow suppression
  13. Anti histamine
    **IN high doses--> CNS stimulation and seizures b/c histamine blocks seizure activity
    • Anti histamine
    • **IN high doses--> CNS stimulation and seizures b/c histamine blocks seizure activity
  14. COX 1

    • protects against mucosa-increasing blood flow
    • supports renal function
    • promotes platelet aggregation
  15. inhibition of COX 1

    • renal impairment
    • bleeding
    • prevent MI/stroke
  16. COX 2
    • Bad COX
    • at site of injury

    • sensitizes pain receptors
    • mediates fever and pain in brain
    • supports renal function

  17. inhibition of COX 2
    decrease pain, fever inflamm

    • promote renal failure
    • promote embolic events (MI)
  18. ASA and NSAIDS

    • Stop production of prostaglandins
    • -suppress inflamm
    • -relieve pain
    • -reduce fever

    • risk of:
    • stomach ulcer
    • bleeding
    • renal impairment
  19. ASA
    • Aspirin
    • NON-selective COX inhibitor
    • Irreversible

    • Suppress inflamm, analgesia, and platelets. Reduce fever, relief of dysmenorrhea, colorectal cancer preventtion, Alz's prevention
    • Stroke and MI protection

    SE: GI, bleed, RI, Reye's, ringing in ears
  20. Acetaminophen
    2nd most used drug in US

    • Anti-pyretic and analgesic effects
    • -No inflamm effects
    • -Inhibits prostaglandin synthesis in CNS only

    inhibits metabolism of Warfarin
  21. Acetylcystine / Mucomyst
    Antidote for Acetaminophen overdose
  23. Tx of DM: oral

    one oral med
    oral insulin is only for type II diabetes and only after diet and exercise don't work

    Sulfonylureas = introduced as oral antidiabetis meds, but hypoglycemia was major side effect
  24. short duration: rapid-acting
    • given in association with meals. Controls postpradnial blood glucose
    • given subQ and via continuous SC pump
    • can be given IV-rare

    clear solutions (except NPH)
  25. short duration: slower acting
    • given in association with meals. control postprandial blood glucose
    • -SubQ, IM, IV, via pump
    • BEST IV form of insulin
  26. intermediate acting
    twice daily to control b/w meals and at night
  27. long duration
    • precipitates in human pH and slowly dissolves
    • -lasts 24 hours

    • mostly given at night, but time may vary
    • DO NOT mix or give IV
    • SubQ only

    clear solution

    • decreases plasma levels
    • inhibits reasorp from bone
    • inc. ca++ excretion

    • Some foods (spinach) decrease Ca++ absorp
    • Glucocorticoids  increase Ca++ excretetion and decrease GI absrop
  35. Hypocalcemia
    • increases neuromuscular exitability
    • -spasms, tetany, convulsions

    caused from deficiency of PTH, Vit. D, or calcium
  36. Tx for Hypercalcemia
    • IV saline, promote urination --> for life threatening situation
    • Give calcitonin --> dec. mobilization from bone
    • Eat bran --> dec. intestinal absorption
    • can use diuretics --> increase Ca+ excretion
  37. Edetate Disodium / EDTA
    • Chelating agent that binds ca+ in the blood
    • used for sever hypercalcemia

    • binding increases excretion
    • rapid reduction of serum ca+
    • -can result in profound hypocalcemia
    • used as anti-coag in blood drawing tubes
  38. Alendronate / Fosamax
    Bisphosphonate used for osteaporosis

    absorbed by osteoclasts, decreasing their activity

    • Taken on empty stomach, swallow whole, full glass h2o, and sit up for 30 minutes after
    • -avoid esophagitis
  39. SERMS and osteoporosis
    • estrogen effects some tissue
    • - preserves bone density, lowers cholesterol, pro-coagulant

    • Anti-estrogran effects in others
    • - prevents cancer in breast and endometrium
  40. 3 types of cancer drugs
    • cytotoxic agents= direct kill
    • Hormones and hormone antagonists= interfere with hormone dependent tissues
    • Targeted drugs= created to bind to specific molecules
    •   = monoclonal antibodies
  41. Anti-Metabolites
    cytotoxic dx
  42. alkylating agents / Platinum compounds
    cytotoxic dx
  43. anti-tumor antibiotics
    cytotoxic agents
  44. Mitotic Inhibitors
    Cytotoxic agent
  45. Topoisomerase Inhibs
    Cytotoxic agent
  46. what classification drug is used for prostate cancer?
