One major issue is the concept of functional reserve capacity of the immune system: it is well recognised that redundant effector and/ or regulatory mechanisms are generally combined to mount a normal immune response. Therefore, when one such mechanism is impaired in relation to immunotoxic exposure, one or several mechanism(s) can exert their compensatory influence, so that the resulting consequence is the lack of overt change. Although antimicrobial resistance was consistently shown to be markedly impaired in patients treated with potent immunosuppressive agents, it is more difficult to identify whether and to what extent antimicrobial resistance is impaired following exposure to chemicals which depress, but do not totally abrogate, the immune response, that is to say immunodepressive chemicals.
