Introduction To Biology Of Infectious Diseases

determining tropisms (affinity for certain tissues) to which microorganisms colonize organs. The physiological Flora is tropism and by many factors (eg. As diet, hygiene, health, air pollution) affected. Thus, be. B. lactobacilli in the intestinal tract of humans found that feed primarily with dairy products; Haemophilus influenzae colonizes the tracheobronchial tree in patients with COPD. As a result, different body environments ( “body habitats”) contain microbial communities that form Microbiome which differ by microbial composition and function.

A healthy person lives in harmony with the microbial flora, which protects it against the ingress of pathogens. Pathogenic microorganisms are usually capable of causing diseases. The microbial flora consists mostly of bacteria and fungi, and includes the physiological local flora that is consistently found and when it is disturbed, returned to normal quickly, and a transient flora, which may reside on the host for hours to weeks, but not permanently established. Seeds of physiological flora can cause disease occasionally, especially in immunocompromised patients. determining tropisms (affinity for certain tissues) to which microorganisms colonize organs.
