These are known as MHC proteins (major histocompatibility complex) or HLA proteins (human leucocyte antigens) and they give cells their tissue type. Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) There are two main types of MHC proteins present on the surface of body cells: • MHC class I proteins are present on all body cells except red blood cells (all cells with nuclei) and are involved in rejection of foreign tissue. • MHC class II proteins are present on lymphocytes, macrophages, monocytes and antigen presenting cells.

The name refers to the way they complement the activities of antibodies. There are two main ways to activate the complement cascade: the classical and alternative pathways (Coico and Sunshine 2009). The classical pathway is activated by an antibody attached to an antigen on a bacterial cell wall. This activates the first component C1. This activates a series of other complement proteins (C4, C2, C3 and C5) and promotes inflammation. During this process, bacteria also become coated with complement protein fragments that enhance their removal by phagocytosis.

Until the microflora is able to re-establish itself, this is likely to lead to an increased susceptibility to infections in these locations (Berger 2002). Friendly bacteria are usually only friendly if they remain in the appropriate location in the body. If gut bacteria are able to migrate through the gut wall, for example, they may be able to cause systemic infection. The gut wall is usually protected from invasion by gut bacteria by the single cell layer of the mucosal epithelium (O’Hara and Shanahan 2006) and by the presence of gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) in nodules within the mucosa and submucosa layers (Gibney et al.
