What do we mean when we talk about immunology? Simply put, immunology is the study of the immune system and the management of related medical problems, such as allergies and autoimmune disorders. It’s a field that’s expanded in recent years as more and more of us have grappled with allergies.
The fact is, most of us have an allergic sensitivity to something. Luckily, it’s mild in most cases, so if we’re around mold, a little too much pollen, or a cat that’s overly friendly, we’re liable to get a runny nose, itchy eyes, or some pretty explosive sneezing. But in some cases, an allergy can be serious, or even life-threatening.
Whatever the severity of the allergic reaction, the only way proper treatment can happen is through studying and understanding antibodies. When a foreign substance enters your body, your white blood cells manufacture proteins that act as a defensive measure. These are known as antibodies, and at Perll Diagnostics, that’s one of the services we’re proud to offer.
