Abstract : A review of sequential metabolic responses of the host to infectious disease. Infectious illness initiates a variety of specific and nonspecific metabolic, biochemical, endocrine, and physiological responses which are necessary in the host's defense against invading organisms. This results in alterations in protein, carbohydrate, lipid, mineral, trace element, and water metabolism of the host. (Author)
