Patient care services
At present, the “Department of Clinical Immunology” and its “Clinical Immunology Laboratory” offer a large number of patient care services.
- The immunodiagnostic services : advance immunological (Immunoflorescence, ELISA, RIA, Nephelometry, Immunoblotting) and molecular (PCR- HLA B27, DR-DQ) tests for early and specific diagnosis of autoimmune disease and Skin Prick Test (SPT) for allergic respiratory disorders.
- Therapeutic services :include immunomodulator / immunosuppressive and biological response modifier therapy for autoimmune disorders, joint and soft tissue injections for inflammatory arthritis and soft tissue rheumatism and allergen specific immunotherapy in the form of sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) for bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis. We are now in the process of establishing stem cell therapy as a part of regenerative medicine and tumor immunotherapy facilities at JIPMER and hope to offer these services to the needy patients in near future.
