In brief: Colplex
Two very different microorganisms with different mechanisms for producing disease.
Cholera affects only the mucous lining of the bowel and produces a toxin-mediated watery diarrhea. Salmonella typhi infection begins in the intestinal tract, spreading to the local lymph nodes, to the blood stream, etc.
