Question and answer
Describe what is meant by “infection” and “colonisation”
thinkfirst Level 18 / Scientist Answered 4 months ago 1 You are talking about the processes involved with bacterial infection Colonisation is when a bacterial strain invades a region of your body and starts to rapidly divide - it sets up a new [ colony Infection is similar but only usually used for opportunistic pathogenic bacteria - that is it does not usually refer to bacteria that
normally inhabit us Localised infection is restricted to a ceratin region of your body Systemic infection means that the infection is throughout your body. This usually means that the bacteria have been able to invade either your ciculatory system or the lymphatic system and spread ]

An infection is the invasion of body tissues by disease-causing microorganisms, their multiplication and the reaction of body tissues to these microorganisms and the toxins that they produce. [1] Infections are caused by microorganisms such as viruses, prions, bacteria, and viroids, though larger organisms like macroparasites and fungi can also infect.
Colonization
The presence of bacteria on a body surface (like on the skin, mouth, intestines or airway) without causing disease in the person.
