I would have liked to have thought that perhaps there was a species out there with a natural biological resistance to or shear power of will ability to not have the Borg tech take them.
Denobulans can resist Borg assmiliation long enough to pruge the nono-probes from their own body.
That was only an example on Phlox himself, and not Denobulans as a species in general.
Perhaps his individual immune system was more resistant in comparison to that of other Denobulans.
And furthermore, the nanoprobes would eventually adapt themselves to his physiology and would transmit this data to the Collective, which in the future would not be a problem.
Lucky for him though, the Borg ship that sent the message to the DQ was destroyed, and we don't know if data in question was transmitted as well.
