immunosuppression (IH-myoo-noh-suh-PREH-shun)

Suppression of the body’s immune system and its ability to fight infections and other diseases.
Immunosuppression may be deliberately induced with drugs, as in preparation for bone marrow
or other organ transplantation, to prevent rejection of the donor tissue. It may also result from
certain diseases such as AIDS or lymphoma or from anticancer drugs.
