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?
