The late twentieth century witnessed the emergence of numerous infectious diseases that are caused by microorganisms that rarely cause disease in normal, healthy immunocompetent hosts. The emergence of these diseases shows that the existing concepts of pathogenicity and virulence do not take into account the fact that both the microorganism and the host contribute to microbial pathogenesis. To address this impediment to studies of host–microorganism interactions, we propose a new theoretical… Expand
Microbial pathogenesis: Basic concepts in the host-microorganism interaction
TLDR
A unified review of basic conceptions of host-macroorganism interaction used by students and professionals of vets' medicine to present a unified criticism of this approach is presented. Expand
The Damage-Response Framework of Microbial Pathogenesis and Infectious Diseases
TLDR
This chapter describes the origins and conceptual underpinnings of and the outcomes of infection put forth in, the damage-response framework. Expand
Virulence factors and their mechanisms of action: the view from a damage-response framework.
TLDR
This review analyzes virulence factors from the viewpoint of the damage-response framework of microbial pathogenesis, which defines virulence factor as microbial components that can damage a susceptible host. Expand
Candida albicans Pathogenesis: Fitting within the Host-Microbe Damage Response Framework
TLDR
This review revisits the damage response framework from the perspective of Candida albicans, a microbial pathogen uniquely adapted to its human host, and highlights some of these diverse and site-specific diseases and how they fit the DRF classifications. Expand
Accidental Virulence, Cryptic Pathogenesis, Martians, Lost Hosts, and the Pathogenicity of Environmental Microbes
TLDR
The germ theory of disease was proposed in this work as a guide to the selection of hosts for virulent microbes and the role of immune checkpoints in microbial pathogenesis. Expand
Towards a vaccine for Cryptococcus neoformans: principles and caveats.
TLDR
The evidence to support the development of a vaccine for C. neoformans that induces antibody-mediated immunity is discussed herein and would need to prevent disease resulting from either acute or reactivated infection. Expand
Molecular Pathogenesis of Fungal Infections
TLDR
The availability of genomic databases for key fungal pathogens will shed light on fungal pathogenesis and response to stressors both from host defense pathways and antifungal drugs, and will identify promising targets for drug development. Expand
Antifungal Th Immunity: Growing up in Family
TLDR
The cellular and molecular mechanisms that provide immune homeostasis with the fungal biota and its possible rupture in fungal infections and diseases will be discussed within the expanding role of antifungal Th cell responses. Expand
Novel anti-infectives: is host defence the answer?
TLDR
A broad variety of therapies are already available or increasingly under development, to stimulate protective innate immunity without overtly stimulating harmful inflammation or even suppressing such damaging pro-inflammatory responses. Expand
The state of latency in microbial pathogenesis.
TLDR
There is a need for a better understanding and more investigation of host and microbial mechanisms that result in this state, which is a temporally unstable state with an eventual outcome that mainly depends on host immunity. Expand

Bacterial virulence and pathogenesis: an overview.
  • P. Sparling
  • Biology, Medicine

TLDR
An overview of the stages of infection common to many bacterial infections is presented, and expression of virulence depends on a large number of host variables, including nonspecific and specific immune defenses. Expand
Host-Pathogen Interactions: Redefining the Basic Concepts of Virulence and Pathogenicity
TLDR
Historical concepts of microbial pathogenicity and virulence are reviewed, new definitions are proposed, and a classification system for microbial pathogens based on their ability to cause damage as a function of the host’s immune response is suggested. Expand

TLDR
Parasitism, in its negative aspects, explains the emergence of "new" infections that involve harm to more than host organs and cells: the authors may encounter subtler infections that reveal parasitic and host cell nucleic acid interactions in a form of genomic parasitism. Expand
Host-pathogen interactions: the attributes of virulence.
Virulence is one of a number of possible outcomes of host-microbe interaction. As such, microbial virulence is dependent on host factors, as exemplified by the pathogenicity of avirulent microbes inExpand

TLDR
The thesis proposed herein is that the relationships that H. pylori have with humans may encompass each of the three prototypes illustrated in Table I, and that such analyses provide paradigms of host–microbial interactions that may have applicability to other clinically significant organisms.

Fungi, dendritic cells and receptors: a host perspective of fungal virulence.
TLDR
These findings offer new interpretive clues to the mechanisms of fungal virulence: rather than dimorphism per se, the engagement of different recognition receptors on dendritic cells might select the mode ofFungal internalization and antigen presentation, condition the nature of the T-helper response and, ultimately, favor saprophytism or infection.

TLDR
The alarming rise in antimicrobial-resistant strains, the increasing frequency of serious infections in immunocompromised patients, and the paucity of new types of antibiotics suggest the need for reevaluation of the manner in which infections are treated. Expand
