In addition to immune factors, the normal flora as a part of host resistance also gradually tends to balance on the new basis. The end stage will come after the peak of the etiological struggle against the host. 3 Outcome of Infection The outcome of infection is the result of the etiological struggle against the host. From the population’s perspective, the outcome of infection is an infection spectrum of continuous quantitative change combining recovery, illness and death. 18 1 Infectious Microecology Vaccines are also called immunizations because they can take advantage of our natural immune system’s ability to prevent infectious illness by artificial infection to establish an artificial immune barrier, which may reduce mortality and morbidity, increase subclinical infection and prevent reinfection.
Since antibiotics (especially broad-spectrum ones) can kill beneficial microbes together with pathogens, these anti-infection processes usually lead to microecological imbalance and immune suppression, thus causing other diseases such as diarrhea and multiple organ dysfunction syndromes (MODS). Furthermore, antibiotic resistance often occurs and leads to infections that are difficult to treat and may become more serious diseases [26-29]. Applying theories and methods in microecology, We found that the imbalance in humans may result in severe infections or damage to organs, and then established a new concept of “infectious microecology”.
