A term that means the immune system is not working properly, possibly as the result of disease or a genetic condition, or a side-effect of drugs (medicines). Some chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments can have a negative effect on the immune system.
a condition (caused, for example, by the administration of immunosuppressive drugs or irradiation, malnutrition, aging, or a condition such as cancer or HIV disease) in which an individual's immune system is unable to respond adequately to a foreign substance.
A chronically ill patient who is incapable of full and normal white blood cell and antibody defense against invading germs or other antigens.
A condition in which the immune system is weakened as the result of disease, drugs or malnutrition.
unable to develop a normal immune response usually because of malnutrition or immunodeficiency or immunosuppressive therapy
Having a defective immune system.
An animal whose immune system is not functioning normally and that may be incapable of mounting an antibody or cell-mediated immune response, is immunocompromised. Some genetic models are immune deficient (immunocompromised). Anti-rejection drugs also result in compromise of the immune system.
patients in whom the immune response is reduced or defective due to immunosuppression.
A situation where the immune system is weakened or not functioning normally because of illness or an immunosuppressive agent.
Condition in which the immune system is not functioning normally
Incapable of developing a normal immune response, usually as a result of disease (lupus, HIV), malnutrition, or immunosuppressive therapy (chemotherapy, corticosteroids).
Someone who is unable to produce an adequate immune response to invasion by various pathogens, due to age, sickness, exhaustion or a regimen of drugs, any of which may render the body's immune system less than effective.
Having a weakened immune system caused by certain diseases or treatments.
A situation where the immune system is weakened or not functioning normally because of illness or a drug or chemical.
