Microbial role in Chronic Illness
A number of chronic human illnesses are triggered, either directly or indirectly, by microorganisms. Among these are diseases that many scientists never suspected of having an infectious etiology, including peptic ulcer disease, brought on by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, and cervical cancer, a condition caused by a human papilloma virus (HPV). Numerous host factors and microbial factors have been found to come into play in determining the outcome of infections with the pathogens that trigger these diseases. Research on chronic infectious diseases can incorporate many different elements, including medical, microbiological, epidemiological, and genetic components.
