Celiac is type IV, it is a cell mediated immune system that results to blunting of villi and all sorts of pathology that leads to the disease

but dermatitis herpetiformis is type II, because the antibody created during the inflammatory process, will deposit in epithelial cells and cause inflammatory reaction.

That is how I understood it.

very much like Rheumatic fever and Glomerulonephritis... both of them are caused by Strep pyogenes, but one is due to antigen mimicry (typeII/RF) and the other one is due to Immune complex (type III/GN)

I feel like I've made such a huge
huge mistaking canceling my exam date because my study time has dropped significantly and I lost the fervor to resume my prep full swing.

I need to force myself somehow. Hopefully I can do that once I make an application for a new eligibility period. I just hope I don't end up waiting too long to get my schedule permit.

In the meantime, just reviewing stuff as usual.

I think the best way to go about is to do questions. lots n lots of em cuz imo , doing questions make me realize how little i know and that keeps me motivated to study

Hey subtle21, you're right. In fact that's the one thing that keeping me going in the first place. I'm doing questions from whatever resources (Goljan comprehensive, FA Q&As, NBMEs) I have at the moment.

Did Uworld 3x, Rx 1x, very little Kaplan (and I don't think starting now is a good idea, do you?)

i actually started off wid kaplan questions and found them helpful. u can use it as a resource but from all the people i've heard from, who've just written step1,they keep repeating the same mantra "uworld uworld uworld"x10. so i'd say dont waste time on kaplan questions now. may b do a couple here n there wen ur bored, but def spend more time reviewing and going thru uworld. i usually do kaplan qs on subway or wen i'm having dinner/breakfast/lying in bed trying to sleep

A previously healthy 6 months old boy develops fever and severe paroxysmal barking cough. He has not had any immunizations. His leukocytes count is 30000 mm3 (70 percent lymphocytes). Neutrophil chemotaxis and oxidative metabolism are defective due to increased activity of which of the following enzymes.
A) adenylyl cyclase
B) myeloperoxidase
C) nadph oxidase
D) Phospolipase C
E) Protein kinase C
I am kind of stuck! some one please reply!

A) adenylyl cyclase....the person has B. pertussis....which produces pertussis toxin....which inhibits Gi...thus no inhibition of adenylyl cyclase...it keeps of running...increase cAMP....this causes decreases chemotaxis of neutrophils...so they increase in number but dont know where to go...also this toxin increases insulin release...causing hypoglycemia

I would say barking cough~whooping cough.hence B.Pertussis...so increased AC... (optionA)

I found BRS anatomy really helpful bak in med school. but now that i'm closer to the exam date, i'm guna stick wid FA. there's always guna b questions that u wont know the answers to. so i wont recommend spending too much time learning new info. A friend of mine who wrote the exam in Sept told me she had a couple of anatomy questions that she had no idea about (or had seen bak in med school, sem1), so she just guessed them and moved on.

(1) If you plug in the math, then resistance will increase by 16x. But the question says reduced...
(2) This question is a bit clearer. Then the resistance will be reduced to 1/16
