    Controversies in the management of infections in immunocompromised patients. Symposium. New York NY (USA), 1992/11/18.

    Intensive chemotherapy regimens, widespread prophylactic and therapeutic administration of antibiotics, reliance on intravascular catheters, increased use of immunomodulators, and increased outpatient management have altered the epidemiology of infections in patients with neoplastic disease.

    At many centers, bacteremias due to gram-positive organisms have replaced bacteremias due to gram-negative organisms as the most frequent infections in patients with cancer.

    Isolation of gram-negative bacilli other than Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa has increased in frequency, and these organisms have become important pathogens.
