adherence to host cell-capsule hindrance

From what I understand about pathogenic microbiology, I think that the capsule will indeed act as a physical barrier. The host's complement system, which acts as a passive response against invading organisms, attracts phagocytes and is directly cytolytic on its own (via membrane ...
