Abstract

Antiparasitic and antifungal drugs have not received the same high level of recognition as antimicrobial drugs. They are comparatively few in number, the great majority of them were developed more than a century ago, they have many adverse side effects and are subject to the emergence of drug resistance. The second part of the review, devoted to the immunomodulatory effects of antimicrobial agents, addresses the interference of antiparasitic and antifungal agents with the host natural defenses and the deleterious or beneficial consequences of these properties.
