If a germ cell or somatic cell had the original mutation, then there's an increased risk for cancer in other parts of the body too. If only retinal cells in one eye is mutated, only that one eye is at risk for cancer.
Chorionic villi sampling is the taking of genetic material within in the chorionic villi of the placenta. Chorionic sampling is done when a patient is at high risk for chromosomal abnormalities (previous pos. tests, 35yo or older, family hx.) during the 10-13 weeks of pregnancy.
Confined placental mosaicism results when the C.V.S. testing comes back back showing a trisomy, but all subsequent testing (and the fetus itself) have normal chromosomal counts. This may be due to either a trophoblastic mutation, or by "trisomic rescue," in which trisomic cells that were supposed to be in the fetus are confined to the placenta to prevent an abnormal fetus.
A 70 year old develops a progressive disinhibition syndrome with episodes of emotional outbursts, inappropriate use of language, and socially inappropriate behavior. Where is the most likely damage?
Answer: Frontal lobe disinhibition.
Bilateral amygdala (medial temporal lobe) would've been affected if it was Kluver Bucy Syndrome.
So although Misoprostol DOES increase mucus production and is gastro-protective (and in FA does state that it decreases acid production), thereby decreasing symptoms and aiding in healing, omeprazole is the "more correct" choice. This is because omeprazole is a proton-pump inhibitor, which will act directly on the proton pumps of the stomach and decrease the offending agent more than the misoprostol will. Therefore, it is the first line drug for GERD.
