Germ is an everyday word for microbes that cause sickness. A microbe is any living thing that is small enough that you can't see it with your eyes alone (you need some type of… microscope). also a germ is found on hands
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
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.
pathogens are bacteria cells that enter your body, and phagocytes are a defense mechanism in your body used against bacteria cells.
Microbes are microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc., while the bacteria specifically refers to bacteria..
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.
An embryo is the result of fertilization of an egg and sperm. Theterm can be used for the growing organism up to birth. "Germ" isoften used to mean bacteria and viruses but it… is used in botany tomean the embryo found in a seed which will germ inate to form a plant. So actuallythey mean the same but are used in different organisms.
