As knowledge widens, it is clearer that despite antibiotics and other pharmacological therapies availability, the body’s ability to identify, stop and eradicate infectious agents is critical. Likewise, the immune system’s role (our bodies’ defenses) in various diseases and the way to control them is better understood nowadays. This laboratory focuses on the study of biological immune markers, as well as on the ability of defenses to act against pathogenic microorganisms.
This Service has a direct impact in cases where a patient does not respond as usual to antibiotic treatments. Frequently, these patients have recurrent infections with common germs, more than expected compared with the general population. It is in these cases where the laboratory performs diagnostic blood tests for patients with allergic syndromes and for those with autoimmune diseases (patients whose immune system attacks their own tissues).
