  1. Amanda, The last question mentions the role of adrenaline and alpha-2 antagonsim, this should be alpha-1. Also, I like the way you’ve kept the answers simple and concise, but perhaps just a brief mention of the mannose binding lethicin complement pathway (or not?).
    Cheers, Damien
    p.s. and yes I’ll have some newer ones to you for up-load in the next few weeks….

    • Hi Damien, thanks again for pointing out the error – it has been updated. I think that the mannose binding lecithin pathway will certainly be worth bonus points for the candidate who can weave it into an answer. I won’t be adding it to the answer on this website though – keep in mind that the notes on this site were prepared for the 2008 sitting and updating them with the latest research is beyond the scope of this site…and a reason to not rely on only one source for exam preparation!

      Look forward to receiving some of your answers – let me know when you have some ready to send in and I will send you my email address for you to forward them.
