In brief: Invasion

The pathogen can enter the bloodstream directly through the out pouchings called "villi" or it can break down the cellular tight junctions between the calls lining the gut and so allow for a "leaky gut" like syndrome.
The latter can be a chronic source of inflammation and cause other illnesses.
