Host and Pathogen Interactions

\ Most of the terminology used to define the host-microbe interaction has been in use for nearly a century. Later, new information about the attributes of microbes and their hosts resulted in the understanding that the host pathogen interaction does not always result in disease. This recognition, in turn, led to the introduction of terms to explain states in which microbes exist within hosts without causing overt disease and why some microbes only cause disease in certain hosts. Commensal, carrier state, and opportunist were terms put forth to account for microbes and conditions that were sometimes associated with disease but for which Koch's postulates could not be fulfilled for one reason or another.
