Numerous issues relevant especially to how pathogenic microorganisms can succeed in making us sick as well as the general characteristics of both the loss and regaining of health.
The following is a list of disease principles, particularly as applicable to infectious disease:
Acute disease, Adherence (adhesion), antibiotic-associated superinfection, Antigenic variation, Antitoxin, Bacteremia, Biological transmission, Carriers, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Chain of transmission, Chronic disease, Colitis, Commensalism, Communicable disease, Compromised host, Contact transmission, Contagious disease, Direct contract transmission, Disease, Emerging infectious disease (EID), Endemic, Endotoxin, Epidemic, Epidemiology, Etiology, Focal infection, Fomite, Droplet transmission, Hemolysin, Herd immunity, ID50, Incidence, Incubation period, Indirect contact transmission, Infection, Koch's postulates, Latent disease, Limulus amoebocyte lysate (LAL) assay, Local infection, Mechanical transmission, Microbial antagonism (competitive exclusion), Morbidity rate, Morbidity, Mortality rate, Mortality, Mutualism, Noncommunicable disease, Normal microbiota/flora, Nosocomial, Nosocomial infection, Notifiable infectious diseases, Opportunistic pathogen, Pandemic, Parasitism, Parenteral route, Pathogenesis, Pathology, Period of convalescence, Period of decline, Period of illness, Portal of entry, Portal of exit, Predisposing factor, Prevalence, Primary infection, Prodromal period, Reservoir of infection, Secondary infection, Sepsis (within the body), Septic shock, Septicemia, Signs, Sporadic, Subacute disease, Subclinical (inapparent) infection, Superinfection, Symbiosis, Symptoms, Syndrome, Systemic (generalized) infection, Toxemia, Toxigenicity, Toxin (bacterial), Transient microbiota, Transmission of disease, Vector of disease, Vehicle transmission, Viremia, Zoonoses
