• infections
  • What remains less clear is whether a virulence factor identified as such in a particular context is also important in infections involving different host and pathogen types. (frontiersin.org)
  • Moreover, its effect on virulence was relatively minor in many cases, suggesting that pyoverdine is not indispensable in infections. (frontiersin.org)
  • study
  • More generally, our study highlights how comparative approaches can be used to quantify the magnitude and general importance of virulence factors, key knowledge informing future anti-virulence treatment strategies. (frontiersin.org)
