Such symbiotic relationships are numerous. An infection is said to have occurred if an organism is able to breach the defenses of its host and colonize. If, as a result of infection, pathological damage to the host happens, this is called an infectious disease. It is of importance to understand the principles of host-parasite interactions. The term symbiosis (living together) signifies an association between two organisms which co-exist together. When they live together, they may have a variety of effects on one another.

Staphylococcus aureus or coagulase-negative staphylococci) are found to be resistant to all available antimicrobials except vancomycin. Reduction of overuse and misuse of such antimicrobial will eventually decrease the risk for emergence of staphylococci with reduced susceptibility to vancomycin. The therapeutic use of an antimicrobial agent, in human or animal populations, creates a selective pressure that favors survival of bacterial strains resistant to the agent. Compared with patients having susceptible infections, patients with antimicrobial-resistant infections are more likely to require hospitalization and to be hospitalized for longer periods [23].

Page 8 Further technological advancements during the past three decades helped people achieve new inventions. As a consequence, the biosphere started to change faster than ever before. Moreover, many of them have worldwide repercussions, such as chemical contamination of waterways, an apparent thinning of the ozone layer, and the loss of species diversity. Such global human actions directly or indirectly placed people at risk from infectious diseases in more complex and devastating ways. Apart from the big picture of land as a breeding ground of microorganisms, it is painful to realize that the pollution of the oceans is converting them into fertile breeding grounds for microorganisms.
