History of the MRCGP examination

, : History of the MRCGP examination. Occasional Paper: 1-3

The first examination was held in 1965 when five candidates opted to apply for membership by examination rather than by assessment by the Board of Censors. By 1968 the examination had become the only method of entry. Techniques became the responsibility of an increasingly professional group of examiners who met regularly to ensure continuous development. Expansion of vocational training led to a new definition of aims in 1978. The number of candidates, each year is now about 2000 and over 15,000 have become members by examination over the past 25 years.

Backgrounds: Basophils (BA) and mast cells (MC) are important effector cells in allergic reactions. Development, growth and effector cell functions are regulated by a network of cytokines, other ligands, and respective cell surface antigens.Method...

Increasing evidence suggests that toll-like receptors (TLRs) play an important role in cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury. The endogenous ligands released from ischemic neurons activate the TLR signaling pathway, resulting in the production of a...
