WHAT DOES PATHOGENIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

pathogenic

Pathogen

A pathogen in the oldest and broadest sense is anything that can produce disease. Typically the term is used to mean an infectious agent — a microorganism, in the widest sense such as a virus, bacterium, prion, fungus or protozoan, that causes disease in its host. The host may be an animal, a plant, a fungus or even another microorganism. There are several substrates including pathways whereby pathogens can invade a host. The principal pathways have different episodic time frames, but soil contamination has the longest or most persistent potential for harboring a pathogen. Diseases caused by organisms in humans are known as pathogenic diseases. Some of the diseases that are caused by viral pathogens include smallpox, influenza, mumps, measles, chickenpox, ebola and rubella. Not all pathogens are necessarily undesirable to humans. In entomology, pathogens are one of the "three P's" that serve as natural or introduced biological controls to suppress arthropod pest populations.
