how do you calculate the incidence rate?
Incidence/sum of disease-FREE person time
what is disease free person time? how can it be measured?
the amount of time (in years) that each subject was without a disease. You can either add up the total years (most exact), you can average the number of people and multiply by years (500,000 people *1 yr), or you can average the number of years and multiply by people (100 people*2.5 yrs)

what is the cause of homocystinuria? treatment?
Recall: Met gives rise to homocysteine. Homocysteine and Ser combine to form Cystathionine via Cystathionine Synthetase. Cystathionine is converted to Cys via cystathionase.
Homocystinura (an accumulation of homocystine) is caused by a defect in Cystathionine synthetase
Treat: decrease Met, supplement Cys

what is the treatment for Acute Lymphatic Leukemia
Provide body with L-Asparaginase which converts Asn to Asp. this will kill the defective cells as their only source (diet) of Asn will deplete
what is chemical score of a protein?
compares the AA content of a test protein to an egg protein. (CS=(mg AA/g test)/(mg AA/g egg protein))x100. The AA with the lowest % is reported as the CS of that protein
what is the protein digestivility corrected AA score?
similar to CS, but instead of egg use the requirement for a 2-5 yr old. then you multiply the lowest score (not percentage) by the protein digestibility. PDCAAS=((mg AA/g test)/(mg AA/g requirement))-->figure our which AA is the lowes-->multiply by digestibility
what is the biological value of a protein?
tells you how much of a protein is retained in the body
