Abstract

In the elemental struggle between pathogenic microbes and the immune system of the host, each strives for a unique advantage and thus each exploits its own unique particularities in pathogenesis and protection. And each presumably selects for the diversity that generally characterizes the wide range of successful host-pathogen interactions.
