Innate defenses include epithelial barriers to prevent bacterial penetration, clearance of mucus and trapped bacteria from the trachea by the action of ciliated epithelial cells, antimicrobial peptides, complement components, natural killer cells, and phagocytic cells such as neutrophils and macrophages. Adaptive defenses include immune responses that are clonally defined, for example, antibodies generated by antigen-specific B lymphocytes, and T lymphocytes specific for fragments of bacterial components.

Not only has horizontal gene transfer through mobile genetic elements played a key role in the evolution of virulence, but many bacterial species are naturally competent for DNA molecules, so that DNA taken up from lysed bacteria within 12 Chapter 1 microcolonies can lead to homologous recombination with mosaic genes that may give an advantage to their host. This may have both long-and shortterm benefits to the organism.
