Central in the pathogenesis of most of these inflammatory conditions is the occurrence of conditioning-induced tissue damage and disturbance of the normal host bacterial homeostasis in these tissues. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy initiate an inflammatory cascade by activating nuclear factor-jB , resulting in the production and release of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines (IL-1, IL-6, IL-8, TNFa, IFNc) by macrophages, IECs, and endothelial cells [99–101]. This inflammatory response is subsequently aggravated by the loss of barriers facilitating the translocation of microbes or microbial wall components stimulating PRRs [102–104] finally, resulting in clinical disorders.
