Normal flora Penetration

Infection Invasiveness/spread

Infectious diseases Extra/intra cellular pathogen Compromised host Exotoxin

Opportunistic infection Endotoxin - non-specific immunity

Nosocomial Specific immunity

Koch’s postulates Autoimmunity

Bioterrorism

pathogenicity
Pathogenicity
  • virulence factors
  • number of initial organisms
  • immune status
pathogens
Pathogens
  • The “usual” rate
  • Oubreak - local
