The evolution of host-pathogen interaction is driven by a permanent conflict between pathogenic micro-organisms and the host. Pathogenic bacteria have evolved a great deal of means which allow the bacteria to counter host defense mechanisms disturbing the balance of a healthy individual. In consequence, pathogenicity is not the expression of a..
