Lowers WBC counts: Chemotherapy slows down the production of white blood cells (WBC) for a few days which makes patient susceptible to catch infection. This effect on blood cells is short lived, such that most patients recover in 3-4 weeks and so does their immunity. By and large it is a minor problem and can be safely monitored by an oncologist/specialist in the use of Chemotherapy. ...Read more

Why do some people "clear/suppress" pre-cancerous HPV while others do not? Is their immune system stronger/healthier?
We don't know: I do hpv research (looking at the specific parts of the immune system and their responce to hpv) and the truth is no one knows why some people clear/suppress the virus while others don't. Regarding cervical dysplagia cin1 (lsil) approximately 1/3 of women have a future pap smear that is normal, 1/3 keep the cin1(lsil), and 1/3 progress to cin2 (hsil). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do glucocorticoids suppress all parts of the immune system, or suppress some parts and increase the activity of other parts?
Complicated: The answer is complicated. In general glucocorticoids suppress the immune system by interfering with protein production in cells. That being said, glucocorticoids also work on receptors in the cytoplasm of cells, enacting signal mechanisms, some of which are unclear as to action. Glucocorticoids also release food stores for use in a stress reaction. ...Read more
How can I suppress my immune system given my autoimmune disease? Should i request immunosuppressant medications? Are there any other options?
I have uc. I take humira (adalimumab) bi weekly but still have active colitis. Wants me to do weekly humira (adalimumab). How much more does this suppress your immune system?
It does suppress it: In general, when someone takes humira (adalimumab) more frequently, their immune system will theoretically be more affected. That being said, no more tests will be needed. Also, one should assess the risk and the benefit of any intervention, because every intervention carries risk with it. Humira (adalimumab) here is trying to postpone the need for surgery. ...Read more
Here are some ...: Cryo is to destroy or de-naturalize the cells within a lesion such as tumors with liquid argon or warts with liquid nitrogen. After such procedure, the targeted tissues are so destroyed or de-naturalized to become not good enough to act as an agent to incite immune response. So, I doubt cyro will do what you asked. Nonetheless, behind what we know always still hides a lot of what we don't know. ...Read more
Can HTLV1 suppress the immune system in the abscence of cancer ? Or does this mean the person is developing T cell cancer ?
Rare and no: You're unlikely to ever get clear information on something as uncommon and mostly harmless as HTLV 1 on this or any other online forum. I suggest you read the information in the link I provided in responding to an earlier question. It appears you are abnormally obsessed with this pretty much normal virual. Discuss with your doctor and ask whether counseling would be a good idea. ...Read more
If you have a auto immune disease such as sjogrens, does that mean your immune system is suppressed? Effecting your body ability to fight off cancer?
Disordered immunity: The problem in most autoimmune disorders is not immune suppression, but immune confusion. Instead of just fighting invading organisms, your immune system also attacks your normal tissues, and this immune response is what causes inflammation and symptoms of the disease. With prolonged chronic immune stimulation, some of the cells may begin to reproduce uncontrollably, causing cancers like lymphoma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In addition to suppressive therapy, what else should a person do to reduce frequent hsv 2 outbreaks? What can be done to strengthen the immune system?
Sorry, not much: Unfortunately, no proved methods. Maintaining health (rest, exercise, balanced diet) is always good. Avoid things that seem to trigger oubreaks, but clear triggers are rare for genital HSV2; outbreaks are random and don't indicate immune system weakness. Suppressive therapy is the only thing that works reliably. Frequent "outbreaks" while on suppression usually turn out to not be herpes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
