Ascertain your risk factors for primary Immunodeficiency disorder

Primary Immunodeficiency (PID) is a disorder that is present from birth, caused by genetic mutations responsible for building the immune system. People with PID suffer from a weakened defense against germs and infections, which can be identified through genetic testing. This condition is classified as one of many primary immune deficiencies.

Once an initial risk assessment has been conducted, our comprehensive genetic testing panel can be used by your physician to check the order of your DNA sequence in certain genes connected with conditions that impair the body’s capacity to combat potentially harmful cells. This testing can be done in smaller, disease-specific panels or one full panel.

Who is it for?

Anyone can benefit from an immune test, especially those who have family history of immune disorders or individuals who suffer from the following:

N

Autoimmune disorders, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or type 1 diabetes

N

Frequent and recurrent pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, ear infections, meningitis or skin infections

N

Inflammation and infection of internal organs

N

Blood disorders, such as low platelet count or anemia

N

Digestive problems, such as cramping, loss of appetite, nausea and diarrhea

Over 6 million people around the world have been estimated to suffer from a range of primary immunodeficiency diseases (PIDs). However, 70 to 90% of this patient population is estimated to remain undiagnosed. PIDs are comprised of more than 430 different conditions, all caused by inherited defects in one or more immune system components.

By understanding the outcome of your testing, your physician can provide tailored care, pinpoint potential problems, impart family planning guidance and aid in symptom management. Thus, the results from your tests are essential in giving the right care.
