A pathogen is a microorganism which is able to cause diesease or illness in a human being or other animal. A non-pathogenic microorganism does not cause disease or illness.
a microorganism can or can not be harmful for the host body but a pathogen is a microorganism which is always harmful for the host body.so ALL MICROORGANISMS ARE NOT PATHOGEN …BUT ALL PATHOGENS ARE MICROORGANISMS.
Let's start with pathogen. A pathogen is any organism capable of producing disease. An antigen refers to the protein on the surface of a cell (bacterium, fungus or virus) t…hat our bodies recognize as a foreign substance and triggers the immune system into producing antibodies specific to that antigen. This means that if in the future the same antigen is again introduced, our immune system will recognize, remember and produce the right antibodies to "deal" with the intruders. Now it's easier to see the relationship between the two. Pathogens have antigens on their surface. The relationship also explains the difference. â¬ Brittany â¬ .
a pathogen is some that is called a micro orginism and in which it is a disease that no one can feel the symptom. a parasite is some thing like a bug or a flea that feeds on …you and the symptoms are felt often but not as much. a pathogen is some that is called a micro orginism and in which it is a disease that no one can feel the symptom. a parasite is some thing like a bug or a flea that feeds on you and the symptoms are felt often but not as much. a pathogen is some that is called a micro orginism and in which it is a disease that no one can feel the symptom. a parasite is some thing like a bug or a flea that feeds on you and the symptoms are felt often but not as much
An antigen is a body's system for creating antibodies to fight infection. A pathogen is an infectious agent (or germ).
a pathogen can kill you or cause disease,. a non-pathogen won't
Pathogenicity refers to the ability of an organism to cause disease. Virulence refers to the degree of pathology caused by the organism
A pathogen is any disease causing organism. Insects generally do not cause disease although they may be vectors or carriers of disease, for example, the mosquitos who carry ma…laria.
Pathogen is the agent or the culprit that causes a disease while the disease is the end result of what a pathogen did. Example: HIV virus is the pathogen while AIDS is the dis…ease state that can result from high HIV viral load.
Any agent that is capable of causing a disease is called as a pathogen. Vector is a DNA molecule carrying the gene of interest from one bacteria to the other to form a transf…ormed cell.
pathogens are bacteria cells that enter your body, and phagocytes are a defense mechanism in your body used against bacteria cells.
pathogens - micro organisms that cause disease. all viruses are pathogenic but only some are pathogenic to man. certain bacteria cause disease in man. spoilage organisms - mic…ro organisms that do not cause disease but they do spoil food by growing in the food and producing substances which alter the colour, texture, and odour of the food E.G = souring of milk , mould on breads and rotting of fruits and veg
They are both the same thing, pathogen is something that causes a disease
Pathogens comprise both animate and non animate objects, their presence on the body of the living tissues of either plants or animals lead to production of symptoms typical of… a disease. Parasites on the other hand, are living (Bacteria, Protozoa, etc) and semi-living (viruses) entities that live inside the host securing shelter and nourishment from its host body and either causes damage to the host (e.g Plasmodium vivax causes malaria to man) or give something (E. coli in man's intestine) in return. ..........................................

A pathogen (bacterial, viral, fungal) MAY cause disease, but not necessarily. Also, many diseaases are noninfectious - meaning that no pathogen is involved.
A pathogen causes a disease while a contagion spreads a disease by direct or indirect contact.
