Clinical & Cellular Immunology

March 5, 2013

Clinical Immunology :

Immunology is the study of the immune system. Immunologists are seen primarily as laboratory-based advisers rather than doctors responsible for the care of patients. The immune system is how all animals, including humans, protect themselves against diseases. To treat diseases like AIDS and cancers, including leukemia, allergies by using complex and sophisticated molecular techniques.

•             primary immunodeficiency

•             allergy

•             autoimmune rheumatic disease

•             joint paediatric treatment for children with immunodeficiency

•             Immunoglobulin infusion treatment for patients with antibody deficiency.

Cellular Immunology:

Cellular immunology is the study of the cells and molecules of an organism’s immune system. The field involves studying how those different cells and elements work together to provide a protection against different types of infections. To better understand cellular immunology, scientists study both healthy immunity processes and those that are definitely battling of infection, comparing the variations and similarities of how the immune system’s cellular structure functions.

Cellular immunologists also research immune system hypersensitivities to environmental factors, like allergic reaction or asthma. How autoimmune disease — when a body’s immune system attacks various tissue cells in conditions such as diabetes — works is another topic of research in cellular immunology. Scientists also study on the cellular level why some organ transplants are denied by people’s immune processes.

Factors that affect cellular immunology are also analyzed by researchers. For example, the age of a person can impact his immune system’s  performance on the cellular level. Researchers study how environmental factors impact immune system response at a cellular level, such as whether a patient was exposed to certain infection early compared to later in life, the effect of hygienic conditions on a individual immune system and how gene affect the immune system’s functionality at the cellular level.

OMICS Publishing Group is delighted to invite you to attend the 2nd International Conference on Clinical & Cellular Immunology during October 15-17, 2013 Hampton Inn Tropicana, Las Vegas, USA.
