BACKGROUND

A healthy person has numerous defense mechanisms that protects against invasion of micro-organisms. These host defense mechanisms include natural barriers (i.e., skin), non-specific immunity (i.e., phagocytic cells) and specific immunity (i.e., antibodies). However, if the host defenses are defective or becomes disrupted, the micro-organisms may enter and affect various parts of the body. Therefore, optimal treatment of infective disorders requires use of treatment agents to kill the micro-organisms and preventative agents that restore the host defense mechanisms.
