Infectious agents and parasites
Welcome to the Infectious Agents and Parasites section of WikiVet. In this section we deal with infectious agents; these are microorganisms that invade and multiply in body tissues and can result in cellular injury, toxin release or antigen-antibody response. Parasites are also discussed; these are organisms that require another organism to live upon or within to survive. This is often detrimental to the host organism and can result in disease.
