Congenital Immunodeficiencies: Many Affected, Low Awareness; 15 Years of Joint Private Commitment

Outpatient immunology clinic in Vienna, Austria, a partner of the Jeffrey Modell Foundation for primary immunodeficiency disorders (PID) based in the US for the past 15 years; joint effort to increase awareness and improve health and quality of life
VIENNA, Austria - Aug. 21, 2019 - PRLog -- The successful partnership between the Immunologische Tagesklinik (ITK), a privately run outpatient immunology clinic in Vienna, and the US-based Jeffrey Modell Foundation (JMF), committed to increasing awareness and improving the situation of people with PID, was launched 15 years ago. Since then, over 750 patients in Austria have benefited from the ITK's outstanding scientific and medical expertise. In many cases, years of suffering from serious infections have been alleviated for the first time by precise immunological diagnosis and consequently targeted treatment. However, estimates point to many more potentially affected individuals – tens of thousands of people in Austria with PID, that have still not received a precise diagnosis – so the ITK-JMF partnership is still as important as ever.
