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.

Infection: The invasion and multiplication of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites that are not normally present within the body. An infection may cause no symptoms and be subclinical, or it may cause symptoms and be clinically apparent
colonisation

the presence and multiplication of microorganisms without tissue invasion or damage. The colonies develop when a bacterial cell begins reproducing.

1. Infection is the invasion and multiplication of microorganisms in body tissues, especially that causing local cellular injury due to competitive metabolism, toxins, intracellular replication, or antigen-antibody response.

2. Colonization is the act of colonizing; the establishment of colonies.
