Compatibility filter – ability of disease to infect host; zoophilic mosquitos prefer animals over humans generally in NA because humans migrated to the continent only 12 thousand years ago thus mosquitos evolved preying upon animals. Lysosomes in saliva. Nitrogen in human body is not a free protein – protection against bacteria by limiting nutrients, thus suppressing reproduction.

Inflammation – human body is trying to localize infection – red, hot, swollen, painful Environmental stability – how long an agent can persist in the environment. Goal to reduce Ro to less than 1 to avoid epidemic; reduce transmission, reduce pathogen replication, prevent pathogen access to water. Pathogens manipulate host to increase spreading. Lethal factor and edema factor enter macrophage cells – goal to kill host to enable transmission of spores through decay. Cystic Fibrosis may have arose as a resistant form to cholera....
