  1. thanx for mcqs...

  2. thanx for mcqs...

  3. thanks for the answeres ..plz do write the answers who so ever post papers..thanks alot

  4. Heparin and histamine are both released from mast cells and basophils. Just look at a peripheral smear of blood 1 hour after taking 500mg of niacin. The basophils will be burst and scattered granules will be seen. Also triglycerides and LDLP will be lowered,and the old Lee-White clotting time will be prolonged.Prophylaxis against anaphylactoid and anaphylactic shock in mammals.
