What sort of biology questions for Medicine Interview?

Thread Starter What sort of biology questions for Medicine Interview? Follow 3 hours ago 3h ago I have some MMI interviews for Medicine coming up. I have not applied to any Oxbridge universities. I was wondering, do they ask any biology questions at the interview? I am refreshing on my gcse human biology. I know diabetes is something I should refresh on. Anything else?

Authors: Dong Y, Li G Abstract Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is one of the most common forms of chronic liver disease in developed countries and is associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and metabolic syndrome. It is defined as steatosis in over 5% of hepatocytes. The disease spectrum of NAFLD ranges from simple fatty liver to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, liver fibrosis, even hepatic cirrhosis. The disease affects various extra-hepatic systems such as the cardiovascular system and urinary system. Heart-related disease is identified as the leading cause of mor...

CONCLUSION: Reasonably effective, low-cost alternatives could fulfill an important role for a large part of the human population and could be of great value for the food market. Even a modest reduction of morbidity and mortality with respect to this disease translates into millions of lives saved. PMID: 31538881 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Zuwala-Jagiello J, Pazgan-Simon M, Simon K, Kukla M, Murawska-Cialowicz E, Grzebyk E Abstract The presence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) in patients with cirrhosis is associated with an increased risk of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) which may represent an increased susceptibility to infections. Endocan is a key player in the regulation of inflammatory disorders, and a biomarker in bacteremia and sepsis. To investigate the association between both endocan and DM, and developing SBP, we conducted a retrospective cohort study. Three hundred and thirty patients (179 men, 151 women; mean age 61.0 ...

Authors: Siwiec E, Szynkowska A, Milkiewicz M, Marlicz W, Stachowska E Abstract Conjugated dienes of linoleic acid (CLA) are constitutional and geometric isomers of linoleic acid that are commonly used as dietary supplements during body mass reduction. Their role in the reduction of lipid deposits in liver tissue is not unequivocal. CLA contain an equimolar mixture of two isomers of linoleic acid: trans-10,cis-12 CLA and cis-9,trans-11. Only one isomer - trans-10,cis-12 CLA exhibits fat-reducing properties, cis-9,trans-11 CLA does not. The main goal of this study was to determine if CLA isomers affect the activatio...

Authors: Aleksiejczuk M, Gromotowicz-Poplawska A, Marcinczyk N, Przylipiak A, Chabielska E Abstract The local renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) is fully expressed in the human skin at the mRNA and protein level. Local RAAS is known to play a regulatory function in epidermal proliferation, wound healing, scarring, cutaneous heating adaptation, and aging. There are also some indications of its role in the regulation of hair growth and sebum secretion. Impaired wound healing, skin diseases associated with diabetes, cancer development, psoriasis, and scleroderma may be related to changes in skin RAAS activity...

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Oberti L, Gabrione F, Nardone M, Di Girolamo M Abstract Diabetes mellitus (DM) and periodontal disease (PD) are both chronic diseases. From one side, DM have an adverse effect on PD, and on the other side PD may influence DM. Systemic therapy of DM with glycaemic control, affects the progress of PD. Reversely treatment of PD combined with the administration of systemic antibiotics seems to have a double effect on diabetic patients reducing the periodontal infection and improving the glycaemic control. Inflammation, altered host responses, altered tissue homeostasis are common characteris...

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Contaldo M, Romano A, Mascitti M, Fiori F, Della Vella F, Serpico R, Santarelli A Abstract Candida species are commensal yeasts of the oral cavity, which, under predisposing systemic and/or local circumstances, are responsible for a wide variety of clinical manifestations, globally known as oral candidiasis. Candida-associated denture stomatitis is an oral candidiasis particularly affecting the oral mucosa covered by a dental prosthesis, with several degree of severity. Diabetics suffer oral candidiasis more frequently than healthy individuals do and if they are denture wearers, the risk...
