First, the defense mechanisms of the host, the innate and the adaptive immune system, are examined in detail. Then strategies of infection developed by pathogens to overcome host defense, survival and spread are presented. On the basis of model organisms infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and parasites are discussed in more detail. Furthermore, diagnostic and clinical aspects and fundamentals of antimicrobial and antiviral therapy are discussed. Finally, the principles and the most important basic concepts and methods of epidemiology are presented.
