Chronic obstructive lung disease (COLD) is a chronic disorder in which airflow in and out of the lungs becomes progressively limited. COLD is made up of two separate, but related diseases. Chronic ____________ is the persistent inflammation and infection
Bronchitis. With chronic bronchitis, excess mucus is produced in response to the effects of smoking on airway tissue, and the walls of the bronchi become inflamed and infected. This produces a characteristic narrowing of the air passages. Breathing becomes difficult, and activity can become severely restricted. People who stop smoking can reverse chronic bronchitis.

What is affinity?
o Affinity is the strength of the attraction between the drug and its receptor. High affinity = strong attraction, Low affinity = weakly attracted. Affinity is related to potency because drugs with a high affinity are effective in low doses, which means that drugs with high affinity are very potent; conversely, drugs with low affinity must be present in high concentrations to bind to their receptors. Accordingly, drugs with low affinity are not very potent. o Intrinsic activity is the ability of a drug to activate a receptor on binding. High intrinsic activity = intense receptor activation. Low intrinsic activity = slight activation. The intrinsic activity is related to efficacy

Describe the mechanism of G-protein linked receptors.
G-protein linked receptors are activated by appropriate ligands causing the G-protein to be activated inside the cell. The G-protein in turn activates a 2nd messenger (in our case cAMP, IP3, DAG Ca2+, and cGMP) and the 2nd messenger causes a cascade of enzymatic reactions that result in genes in the nucleus being turned on and/or off.

Explain plasma protein binding and its effect upon serum drug levels.
Plasma albumin is the most important protein to which drugs can bind due to the fact that it is the most abundant protein in the plasma. The binding between Albumin and drugs, as a result, a drug may exist either bound or unbound (free). Because of its size albumin always remains in the bloodstream and consequently, any drug bound to it will also say in the bloodstream. This is significant because it does not allow the drugs to reach their sites of action, metabolism, or excretion. The percentage of drug molecules that are bound is determined by the strength of the attraction between albumin and the drug. An important consequence of protein binding is restriction of drug distribution. In addition to restricting the distribution of drugs, protein binding can be a source of drug interactions. Because the number of binding sites on albumin is limited, drugs with the ability to bind albumin will compete with one another for binding sites. As a result, one drug can displace another from albumin, causing the free concentration of the displaced drug to rise. By increasing levels of free drug, competition for binding can increase the intensity of drug responses. If the intensity increases excessively, toxicity can result.
