condition in which the normal immune response is weakened or diminished from the effects of disease or drugs.
failure of the body's immune system to fight disease
the lack of an adequate or normal immune response.
a condition where an individual has a decreased ability to fight disease because there are not enough white blood cells or antibodies.
An inability to produce normal numbers and types of antibodies and sensitized lymphocytes.
A breakdown and weakening of the immune system that causes a person to become more vulnerable to infections and diseases.
immunological disorder in which some part of the body's immune system is inadequate and resistance to infectious diseases is reduced
An innate, acquired, or induced inability to develop a normal immune response.
Inability to produce a normal complement of antibodies or immunologically sensitized T cells, especially in response to specific antigens.
A lowering of the body's ability to fight off infection and disease. People may be immunodeficient as a result of receiving chemotherapy/radiation, an infection, or because of a disease.
The inability of the immune system to satisfactorily protect the body, which results in an increased susceptibility to various cancers and opportunistic infections.
Inability to mount a normal immune response. Immunodeficiency can be due to a genetic disease or acquired as in AIDS due to HIV. See the entire definition of Immunodeficiency
the inability of the immune system to work properly, resulting in susceptibility to disease. Immunodeficiency may be either congenital (present from birth) or acquired. HIV leads to immunodeficiency by attacking T-cells.
A defect in the functioning of the immune system. It can be inherited or acquired, reversible or permanent. Immunodeficiency renders the body more susceptible to illness of every type, especially infectious illnesses.
Breakdown in immunocompetence.
a state of either a congenital (present at birth) or an acquired abnormality of the immune system, which prevents adequate immune responsiveness.
a less than adequate functioning of the immune system (i.e. the inability to fight off illness and disease that an otherwise healthy immune system would be able to).
When the immune system is unable to respond and protect the body from disease.
The decreased ability of the body to fight infection and disease.
Breakdown of the immune system in which certain parts of the immune system no longer function. This condition makes a person more susceptible to certain diseases.
Breakdown which occurs when certain parts of the immune system no longer function. This condition makes a person more susceptible (or less resistant) to certain diseases.
