* Pathogenesis :- The ways in which microorganisms produce disease in

the human body & essential information for diagnosis and treatment .

* Diagnosis :- Laboratory investigation depends on taking correct

specimens and being able to assess the results obtained from the lab.

* Treatment :- Microbiological disease is one of the first conditions in

medicine for which specific and highly effective therapy is available .

*Epidemiology :- The spread , distribution and prevalence of infection

in the community .

*Prevention :- Many bacterial and viral diseases have been virtually

eradicated by immunization , public health measures and improved

living standards .
