Abstract

Host defense relies not only on microbicidal mechanisms (resistance), but also on management of collateral damage (tolerance). Here, we discuss how this immunology concept converges with a physiology-born theory on the dichotomy of thermometabolic responses in infection (fever versus hypothermia), yielding a model of immunity that transcends discipline barriers.
