plus clinical trials at that stage would have had tons and tons of participants (and, most importantly to rule out all the answers, control group)
I totally thought it was phase 4 of a clinical trial as part of post-market surveillance. Smh.
For phase 4 they report to the said findinds and adverse to the FDA via a portal not to a journal.
Agreed! It's along the lines of those marathon runners who collapse questions. Nothing but water for 24 hours = getting rid of too much sodium.
are we just going to ignore the diarrhea for 3 days? what is its significance
Temmy, We aint Ignoring the Diarrhea, Actually the most likely electrolytes to get lost with it is sodium> chloride> potassium> bicarbonate... Plus the Water intoxication -> HYPONATREMIA
Because glucose is not an electrolyte, it does not conduct electricity in solution. The question is asking "Which of the following electrolyte abnormalities".
the way i though about it was: you need antibodies (IgG/IgM) to activate the complement system. But there's no such a thing as an anti-gout antibody. (and it is not an infection neither)
Thats not exactly true for a couple reasons. I saw a UWorld question that said something along the lines of an ApoProtein being useful b/c it binds the urate crystals, and makes it less likely for the crystals to be opsinized/recognized by neutrophils. Therefore, Abs do play a role. Secondly, you can have activation of coplement via the alternative pathway, which does not require ABs.
