The correct answer is the ability of the pathogens to resist treatments.  

A rapidly developing field, which utilizes the principles of evolutionary biology to better comprehend, treat, and prevent disease, and that utilizes studies of disease to progress fundamental knowledge in evolutionary biology is known as evolutionary medicine.  

One of the domains of evolutionary medicine is to study how the organisms evolve and adapt. This can be illustrated by considering the fact that the overuse of antibiotics eventually makes the bacteria and pathogens more resistant against it, that is, they get to evolve as they adapt themselves against the antibiotics.
