ALLERGOLOGY AND IMMUNOLOGY

allergology-and-immunology

 

Allergology is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of allergies, immune disorders characterized by hypersensitivity to particular substances.

Immunology is a branch of medicine that deals with all aspects of the immune system, while studying aspects of the body’s defences against infections and possible immune responses in case of immune system disorders (autoimmune disease).

Allergology addresses the diagnosis and treatment of one of the following allergic diseases in adults and children:

 

 

Basic allergy tests are available and can be used for a correct diagnosis:

Based on these tests, an oral desensitization to foods can also be performed: milk, egg, fish, etc.

 

Diagnosis and treatment of the following allergic diseases:

respiratory allergies (asthma, rhinitis)

eye allergies (conjunctivitis)

skin allergies (atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, urticaria-angioedema)

food allergy (oral allergy syndrome, eosinophilic esophagitis, enterocolitis, etc.)

food intolerance (to lactose, wheat, yeast, etc.)

Hymenoptera allergies (bees, wasps, hornets)

drug allergies

Diagnosis and follow-up of bronchial asthma

cardiac stress test (baseline spirometry and after a 6-minute run)

Fractional Exhaled Nitric Oxide (FeNO – index of bronchial inflammation)

Treatment of allergic diseases

Besides the individual treatment plan the following can also be performed:

Special importance is given to pediatric allergy and childhood asthma, since childhood is the age at which allergy and asthma diseases most frequently appear.

However, this type of service develops with the framework of a more comprehensive service to families with allergy problems. Thus, it is possible to book a single specialist visit for both children and relatives to be examined on the same day.

 

For the all the above-mentioned diseases, outpatient visits are provided, both for skin allergy testing (prick and patch tests) and for tests on small blood quantities (allergen-specific IgE dose and ISAC test).

It is possible to carry out the most modern and sensitive test for the detection of allergies: The Allergenic molecules proteomic microarray for specific IgE detection, ISAC test. Depending upon your general practitioner’s request, the test results will be interpreted by one of our Centre’s allergists.
