I’m studying and need help with a Health & Medical question to help me learn.
To solve both questions use academic articles, journals and so.
1- Which has the highest elastic modulus: healthy red blood cell, red blood cell infected by Plasmodium falciparum, or red blood cell infected by Plasmodium vivax? Which has the lowest? What are the health implications (i.e., what happens to the body when the infected cells are stiff? What happens when they are compliant?)? Which infection leads to more fatalities?
2-In 500-600words, describe two additional examples of how understanding mechanobiology can help us understand human health and disease. Explain how nanomechanical measurements can be used to address each specific example. Cite your source
