    Isn't that a nice way of calling the 'exempting exam' the final and the 'final' in may the resit?
    Technically; although a fail in January doesn't count as a finals fail, and you can resit if you fail in May.

    See this is the stuff I really like. Also some of those receptors are quite good to know for pharmacology. The CysLT1 is (zafirlukast/montelukast).

    I doubt they'd be classed as essential knowledge! It's just you'll get drugs that work on them and it's difficult to understand the drug if you don't know the target.

    I mentioned zafirlukast/montelukast that are antagonists of the CysLT1 receptor. Used in asthma.

    I thought they were leukotriene D4 antagonists, or is that the same thing?

    Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but (C4?) D4 and E4 will all agonise it. It's just B4 that doesn't because of its different role as a neutrophil attractant. Either way, D4 will cause bronchoconstriction via CysLT1 and so antagonising it is the same thing.

    indeed it is, along with PGE2s like dinoproston and PGF2alphas like carboprost. typically with something like mifepristone to lower the necessary dose.

    also worthy of note is a role in antagonising the gastric effects on NSAIDs.

    i just remember it as the abortion one first too though

    It's called interest... oh, and actually wanting to know what the drugs I may end up prescribing do. And perhaps a shade of nerdiness
