    Measles is viral illness, antibiotics can only treat bacterial illness and therefore will not treat measles.

    Give an advantage and a disadvantage of using steroids in sport for the sportsman/sportswoman (2 marks).
    Can increase performance by increasing muscle size.
    However, they are banned in many sporting activities as it gives unfair advantages.

    Measles is a virus. Viruses reproduce inside cells. Antiobiotics would not be able to kill the virus without harming the cell.

    1) Produce antibodies - these attach to the antigens and destroy the pathogen
    2) Engulf and ingest and destroy pathogens
    3) Produce antitoxins which counteract the toxins produced by the pathogen
