Example text

At the same time, microbes sense the immune status and ‘‘stress’’ of the host and change their behavior by up-regulating virulence factors and becoming genuine pathogens [106]. The role of the innate immunity in cancer patients has been emphasized by the impact of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in innate immune genes, which result in enhanced or attenuated expression and/or function, on treatment complications including infections. This has been based on the concept ‘‘environmentally determined genetic expression’’ (EDGE), which states that the effects of normally silent genetic polymorphisms are unmasked when normal homeostasis is severely disrupted such as occurs after exposure to high-dose chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy (Fig.

Finally, many other drugs, including antibiotics, that are 24 J. P. Donnelly et al. regularly used in cancer patients are known to interfere with the production and function of granulocytes, which also may lead to an increased susceptibility to infection. Although they usually occur simultaneously, any substantial reduction in the number of granulocytes or qualitative defect in the phagocytic process can, in fact, make the patient prone to recurrent bacterial and fungal infections. It has been shown that an inverse correlation exists between the number of circulating neutrophils and lymphocytes, and the frequency of infection.
