i want explanations please
u can select question number and put down the explanation or any links would also help
thank u

Q1)A mouse melanoma, B-16, is highly metastatic. A clone of the B-16 melanoma cells is injected intravenously into the tail vein of mice, and 3 weeks later tumor nodules are found in the
lungs, liver, and ovaries. When an antibody to a liver cell surface antigen is injected 1 hour prior to injection of the B-16 melanoma cells, formation of tumor nodules in the liver is prevented,
but tumor nodules develop in the ovaries and lungs. In vitro studies do not show any cytotoxic effect of the antibody on B-16 or hepatic cells. Which of the following processes is most likely
to be affected by the antibody?
O A) Homing
B) Initiation
O C) Invasion
O D) Motility
O E) Progression
O F) Promotion


Q2)A 48-year-old man comes to the physician because he is concerned about his weight. He is 178 cm (5 ft 10 in) tall and weighs 91 kg (200 lb); BMI is 29 kg/m2. His waist circumference is
103 cm (41 in). His blood pressure is 140/90 mm Hg. Physical examination shows a protuberant abdomen. Laboratory studies show fasting serum glucose and insulin concentrations that
are increased and remain increased 2 hours after the patient receives 75 g of oral glucose. Which of the following sets of additional laboratory findings in serum is most likely in this
patient?
Triglycerides HDL-cholesterol Free Fatty Acids

Q3)A 43-year-old man comes to the physician for a routine health maintenance examination. He is 170 cm (5 ft 7 in) tall and weighs 86 kg (188 lb); BMI is 30 kg/m2. Physical examination and
laboratory studies show no other abnormalities. He tells the physician, "My older brother just got diagnosed with diabetes. I don't want that to happen to me. What should I do?" Which of
the following diets is most likely to be effective in decreasing this patient's risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus?
0 A) Low-calorie
0 B) Low-carbohydrate
0 C) Low-cholesterol
0 D) Low-protein
0 E) Low-sodium

Q4)A 3-year-old boy with a history of unexplained fever, lack of perspiration, absence of response to noxious stimuli, and self-mutilating behavior is diagnosed with congenital insensitivity to
pain with anhidrosis. Genetic analysis shows a missense mutation of the tyrosine kinase domain of the TrkA gene. Assuming this is the only signaling defect in this patient, which of the
following processes has most likely been disrupted?
O A) Binding of nerve growth factor to its receptor
B) Formation of TrkA homodimer in response to nerve growth factor
C) Phosphorylation of downstream molecules in response to nerve growth factor
D) Retrograde transport of nerve growth factor from nerve terminals
O E) Synthesis of nerve growth factor

Q5)A study is conducted to evaluate the onset and course of cardiovascular disease in African American men and women in the USA. Census data from the year 2000 are used to select the
study sample. A series of factors including family income and years of education is defined. Census tracts most representative of the national census data for the factors selected are
used for sampling. Which of the following best describes this sampling technique?
A) Blocked randomization
O B) Population-based
O C) Sample of convenience
O D) Self-selection
O E) Sequential
