Abstract
The impact of antineoplastic drugs on the intestinal microflora was studied in 9 patients with acute leukaemia during chemotherapy and in 5 patients also during chemotherapy-induced neutropenia. Quantitative and qualitative microbiological analyses of faecal samples obtained before and during chemotherapy showed significantly increased counts of Bacteroides spp. in 3/9 patients and, during neutropenia, significantly increased counts of yeasts in 2/5 patients; however, the intestinal microflora was stable in most patients.
