QUESTION NUMBER 1:
LIST THE PRINCIPLES OF CHEMOTHERAPEAUTIC RESISTANCE
Introduction:
PRINCIPLE : Principle is an essential factors or elements that may have impact on the survival mechanism, which may either be from environment or the person taking the drugs or factor participating may engineer drug resistance.
RESISTANCE: It is reduction in drug's effectiveness in which the drug may be fake , adulterated or substandard .Resistance is also the ability of microbes to resist toxic effects of drugs growth.
It is commonly believed that therapy resistance is the result of a selection during therapy

•It can be used in case of azole-resistant Candida or use as a second-line agent for refractory aspergillosis.
•Long half-life (polyphasic elimination: alpha phase 1–2 hours + beta phase 9–11 hours + gamma phase 40–50 hours).
•Low toxicity: only histamine release (3%), fever (2.9%), nausea and vomiting (2.9%), and phlebitis at the injection site (2.9%), very rarely allergy and anaphylaxis
•It's not an inhibitor, inducer, or substrate of the cytochrome P450 system, or P-glycoprotein, thus minimal drug interactions
•Lack of interference from renal failure and hemodialysis
•Needs no dose adjustment is necessary based on age, gender, race
•Better (or no less effective) than amphotericin B and fluconazole against yeast infections Disadvantages Disadvantages of

THEY ARE AS FOLLOW
1. Attachment of the virus to the cell surface: This can be blocked by Enfuvirtide e.g in HIV
2. Uptake into intracellular vesicles (endosomes). Blocked by Enfuvirtide e.g in HIV
3. Uncoating of virus:- Can be blocked by Amantadine e.g in Influenza A
4. Integration of the viral DNA into chromosomal DNA of the host cell: Can be blocked by Fomivisen e.g in Cytomegaloviruv.
5.Template production and RNA or DNA replication (Nucleic acid synthesis) . This Can be blocked by purine,pyrimidine analogs and reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
6. mRNA transcription , processing and translation of mRNA to protein : blocked by Methisazone e.g in Variola
7. Post-translational modification of proteins:
8. Assembly of the components into the whole virus: it's blocked by Methisazone e.g in Variola
9.Exit from the cells.:can be inhibited by Neuramidase inhibitors e.g in

    Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is a good illustration of this mechanism. Yersinia outer membrane protein H (YopH) produces tyrosine phosphatase protein, which suppresses interleukin 2 (IL-2) synthesis by the T cell. Moreover, this protein inhibits the activation of T cell antigen- specific receptors. In addition, the B cell shows an incapacity for the up-regulation of the co-stimulatory molecules expression of CD86, in interaction with pathogen stimulation (Yao et al.,…

    Another mechanism used by the microbe involves binding of immune regulators produced by the host through the production of surface-bound molecules [5, 6]. Host cells produce Antimicrobial Peptides (AMPs) that help in exert cytotoxic activity on microorganisms. The capacity of S. aureus to counteract the activity of the AMPs is another mechanism that enables it to evade the immune system. The microbe has the ability to inhibit the cytotoxic effect through the alteration of the AMP by production of staphylokinase [4]. Neutrophil-mediated processes and phagocytosis are crucial in the host innate immune system.…

    This process has been coined as RNA interference in animals, post-transcriptional gene silencing in plants, and quelling in fungi. Gene silencing involves exogenous double stranded RNA molecules that prevent gene expression by triggering a mechanism that leads to the degradation and silencing of endogenous mRNA molecules (Meister and Tuschl…

    They are mostly prodrugs that must be phosphorylated by viral or cellular enzymes to become active. The following are potential drug targets at different stages of viral development; • Attachment of the virus to the cell surface e.g. enfuvirtide (HIV) Y-globulin • Uptake into intracellular vessicles (endosomes) • Un coating of virus e.g. amantadine • Integration of the viral DNA into chromosomal DNA of the host cell • Template production and RNA or DNA replication(Nucleic acid…

    One of the common medication is Benlysta. The working principle is by blocking the survival signal of B‐cells development in order to reduce the lupus‐infected B‐cells which as shown in figure 3. However there are some possible side effects as shown in figure 4 which the symptoms can be categorized as infections, heart problem and mental illnesses. To conclude, women, Caucasians, African Americans, and Hispanics have a higher potential risk for having systemic lupus erythematosus. However, we just have a rough concept of the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus.…

    Vismodegib is a molecule inhibitor of the Hedgehog (Hh) pathway (Pricl 389). The pathogenesis of BCC is the inapposite activation of the Hh pathway. A molecule on the Hh pathway binds to the receptor on the PTCH1 resulting in inactivation, which then prevent the inactivation of the SMO receptor (Pricl 390). The two main signaling pathways that are most often affected in tumor…

    Hyper methylated CpG islands, mostly because of tightly packed nucleosomes, block BRMS1 activation. Blocking transcription factor binding can also inhibit gene expression. The function of BRMS1 (one of metastatic suppressor gene) is to inhibit metastasis of tumor without having any effect on primary tumor growth. It localizes in chromosome 11, which is in association with growth and spread of human breast cancer. BRMS1 blocks spread of breast cancer by binding with histone deacetylase complexes (HDAC) and aberrant gene regulation is the outcome of this interaction.…

    The Viral DNA is recognised by CAS3, a DNA nuclease and ATP-dependent helicase, (Sinkunas et al., 2011) the spacer is processed and the strands inserted. The second stage is Expression. CAS genes, such as CAS3, are expressed and the CRISPR is transcribed as pre-CRISPR RNA (crRNA) Mature crRNA is then derived from the pre-crRNA. The final stage is Interference in which the target is recognised and destroyed by crRNA and CAS proteins. (Rath et al.,…

    In the first phase of infection, the Ebola virus (or any virus for that matter) must first gain entry into a cell. It is usually done through the agonistic stimulation of a host-receptor. Usually with viruses that have an envelope surrounding the virion, it is observed that those viruses gain entry into the cell via endocytosis. This is the case with Ebola. The virus attacks the host by attaching to host receptors using the glycoproteins studded in the envelope and is endocytosed into macrophagosomes.…
