Immunology is a field of medical and biological research that studies the immune system. Our immune system defends us against infection in a variety of ways. When the immune system isn't working properly, it can lead to diseases including autoimmunity, allergies, and cancer. Immune responses are increasingly being shown to have a role in the development of many common ailments that aren't previously thought to be immunologic, such as metabolic, cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's. Immunology Laboratory testing from Endocrine laboratory will help you to know about the status of your immune system.

Focus of Immunology laboratories

Finding antibodies:  A kind of white blood cell produces these proteins in reaction to a foreign material (antigen) in the body.

Immune system issues are being researched: When the body's immune system assaults its own tissues, for example (autoimmune diseases). When a person's immune system is underactive, they are more susceptible to illness (immunodeficiency disorders).

Checking the compatibility of organs, tissues, and fluids for transplantation: These tests assist to minimize the chances of a donation being rejected.

Immunology Test

Following are the immunology test done by Endocrine Laboratory

Immunoglobulins

Antibody-active proteins are found in the human body. Too much of these proteins can be caused by a variety of situations. These are some of them:

  • Infections
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Cancers
  • Chronic diseases

Many diseases can induce a deficiency of these proteins. Cancers, medications, and chronic illnesses are among them.

Rheumatoid factor

Rheumatoid arthritis is diagnosed and classified using this tool. Other tests are frequently used to classify and diagnose different kinds of arthritis.

HLA (human leukocyte antigens)

Compatibility in organ, tissue, and bone marrow transplantation was tested. Paternity was also confirmed by testing, as well as to detect HLA-linked illnesses, such as autoimmune diseases.

Endocrine Laboratory for Immunology Test

In the assessment of the immune system, Immunology test is crucial. All results must be compared to suitable age-related reference ranges. In order to create the optimal laboratory evaluation method, a complete medical history, family history, and physical examination are required. The Immunology Laboratory is in charge of laboratory testing and clinical consulting in a variety of fields with Endocrine Laboratory, including autoimmune illness, immunodeficiencies, immunoproliferative diseases, and allergies, as well as some elements of infectious disease serology.
