Infectious pathogens - Beautiful but dangerous

Infectious diseases can be caused by many different germs. These etiologic agents can initiate health-damaging processes in humans and are therefore attributed the property of pathogenicity in medicine.

Pathogenic agents can be assigned to five main categories: bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and prions. On this basis the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin maintains a list in which more than 120 different disease pathogens are currently documented. But what actually is the difference between Clostridium difficile and a norovirus? Why are germs becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics? And which product can be used to effectively eradicate pathogenic organisms?

Since questions like this are of concern not only to you, we want to assist you in searching for answers. We now invite you to take a closer look at these germs.
