Influence of antibiotics on the immune system

As antibiotics are frequently used in patients with malignant disease, adverse events become relevant. Little is known about the influence of antibiotics on the immune system of cancer patients, but preliminary experiments suggest relevant alteration of immune effector cells. This project aims at investigating the influence of antibiotics on the immune system of cancer patients in more detail.
