  1. I know what pancytopenia is, but i am wondering if anyone can give me an insight as to why it is termed "Trilineage". This should be an easy question for those doctors out there
  2. One of my biggest problems with pathology is been able to describe a histology slide. I have tried several approaches to tackling these issues but have not succeeded in getting it right. So i am hoping that someone in this forum will point me in the right direction I.E, give a link to a site that shows this, or a book i can purchase (at a reasonable price) that will teach me how to describe histological slides. Cheers On the other hand, here is a typical example... of what i cant do http://www.microscopyu.com/galleries/pathology/chronicpneumonialarge.html I have two questions based on
  3. Thanks Bignose for clarifying the significance of those two dots. I love these boards, dont know why i never signed up... ah well, at least i did.
  4. iNow, that link carries alot of information regarding autoimmune diseases, however the original poster would like a summary of what it is that makes autoimmune diseases more prevalent in women than in men and not have to read the whole article.
  5. I believe the poster wanted to find out why 99 x 0.18 was yielding 0.18 in the book when it should be yeilding 17.82. Was it an approximation or a bad calculation? Notice the approximate equality sign in his question... should it be equal to (=) or approximately (~) to?
  6. It makes more sense now... i guess it means i didnt understand the whole concept properly. Thanks for clearing it up and a huge bonus for mentioning the disadvantages of using it to destroy bacteria,
  7. Ignore my answer to your question if it doesnt meet your satisfaction. I am not a mathematician, just a curious reader on this board. I couldn't help but notice the two dots on the 0.18. I would say those dots would suggest number of units and as such, you are expected to give an approximation of the values you get, which is 18. so you are not wrong in my own point of view, but other mathematicians might give you a better response.
  8. The answer is definately C... and seeing as your teacher is a trickster, you should know he wants to trick you into thinking Y is the wrong 1 whereas they are all the same. Just do the logical thing... do all options fail to answer the question? Which one answer comes close to been right? Clearly your answer there is C...
  9. I understand the whole concept about replacing antibiotics with bacteriophage because of the increase in antibiotic resistant bacteria, but what i dont understand is how bacteriophage can be of better use in tackling bacteria resistance. First of all bacteriophage infects bacteria with its viral DNA and then makes multiple copies of the virus using the bacteria's cell replication machinery. Now my first question is this, how can a virus which infects bacteria and makes multiple copies of the infected bacteria, be more effective than antibiotics which destroys bacteria without making any c
