While serving in Morocco in 1914, Clunet and other French soldiers were surrounded and threatened with execution. They escaped, but Clunet contracted dysentery. He served during World War I and, although he was not injured in battle, he was infected with dengue fever. In 1916, Clunet was sent to the Middle East on a military transport ship.

For example if a virus damages the DNA of a gene whose job is to stop cancer cells from growing uncontrollably, the infected cells can produce a tumor. In some cases infections can inhibit the normal immune response, reducing the immunosurveillance that normally prevents tumors from forming. Even though the infectious agents that are associated with cancer are very prevalent, the development of cancer after exposure to these agents takes a long time. In fact these cancers are relatively rare and not everyone who is infected with a potential cancer-causing agent develops cancer.
