Pathogenicity of Microorganisms

This chapter focuses on parasitism and pathogenicity. The development of a disease state is a dynamic process that is dependent on the virulence of the pathogen and the resistance of the host. This dynamic process is illustrated in the discussions of viral and bacterial pathogenesis. The chapter concludes with a discussion of mechanisms used by viruses and bacteria to evade host defenses.
