Clinical Immunology: How It's Saving Lives January 6, 2017

Clinical Immunology: How It's Saving Lives, North Hempstead, New York

Immunology is the study of the immune system, which protects the body against diseases. Professionals in the field of clinical immunology work with patients who have illnesses such as cancer and autoimmune diseases like allergies or lupus.

At Linchitz Medical Wellness in Westbury, NY, their clinical immunology staff treats patients through five divisions of clinical immunotherapy. Immunotherapy uses the immune system itself as a means of treating different diseases and conditions.

Onco-Immunotherapy

Patients with cancer are given treatments that boost their immunity and use the immune system itself to attack tumor cells.

Allergo-Immunotherapy

immunologyPatients with severe allergies are treated with allergy immunotherapy. The most commonly used and effective treatment is allergy shots, through which an extract of a small amount of the allergen is injected into the skin of the patient. Over time, this strengthens their immunity to the allergen.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases cause the immune system to attack the person's own healthy tissue. They include multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and inflammatory bowel disease and can be treated using various forms of immunotherapy.

Infectious Diseases

Patients with infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS can benefit from immunotherapy, too. More and more researchers are turning to this form of treatment as a non-antibiotic intervention.

Stem Cells

One of the newest forms of immunotherapy is the use of adult stem cells for tissue and organ repair. Bone marrow transplants are the most common form of stem cell therapy.

At Linchitz Medical Wellness, Dr. Stoff has an extensive background in clinical immunology. The health care team that supports him specializes in the prevention and treatment of disease by promoting a healthy immune system. Treatments at the center include a variety of approaches to stimulate your immune system, such as customized diets to support healing, IV therapy to bolster immunity, and holistic medicine treatments like acupuncture.

If you suffer from an autoimmune disease or another disorder, Linchitz Medical Wellness can help you recover. Call (516) 759-4200 to schedule an appointment, or visit them online for more information.
