Immunity Test – For Mapping the Functionality of the Immune System

Posted On Wednesday 8th February 2017 4:58 PM


The immune system plays a vital role in maintaining the overall health and functionality of the human system. A disorder can greatly disrupt the body’s ability to fight against the invasion of foreign elements in the body such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Typically, two types of immune disorder persist – those which are acquired by birth and those that invade the body. The best way to detect the existence of an immune-related disorder is by getting an immune test done.

Overview - Immune system

The immune system of the body comprises of the following organs:-

  • Spleen,
  • Tonsils,
  • Bone marrow, and
  • Lymph nodes.

Each of these organs is responsible for the production and release of lymphocytes in the blood stream. Classified as B cells and T cells, these white blood cells fight the invaders called antigens. While the B cells release disease-specific antibodies in the body, the T cells, on the other hand, destroy atypical or abnormal cells.

Signs of Immune Disorder

Each and every disorder has its own set of symptoms that can range from mild to severe. However, of these, some common symptoms are as follows:-

  • Pink eye
  • Sinus infection
  • colds
  • diarrhea
  • pneumonia
  • yeast infections

Disorder Detection

If a person showcases signs and symptoms of an immune disorder or has a congenial Immunodeficiency, he/she may be suggested a series of the test along with a detailed examination of his/her medical and family history.

  • Blood Test – A sample of blood can detect the presence of abnormalities in the body. It helps in calculating the levels of immunoglobulins, the infection-fighting proteins in the blood and also in measuring blood cells along with immune system cells. Immunity test in blood labs is carried out with utmost precision for cent percent accurate results.
  • Prenatal Test – individuals who’ve given birth to a child with immunodeficiency disorder, are suggested a prenatal test. Also termed as immunity test for CMV, the test is quite simple. A sample of the amniotic fluid, blood or cells from the tissue which becomes placenta during pregnancy is tested for abnormalities.

Treatment of Immune Disorders

Every immune disorder has its own distinct treatment. For instance, AIDS causes the onset of many different infections. For this, a patient may be prescribed medications according to the infection type detected.

Treatment of immunodeficiency disorder typically involves taking antibiotics and immunoglobulin therapy. Other antiviral drugs may also be prescribed to treat viral infections caused by the disorder. Every diagnostic center in Faridabad and other cities of the nation offers immunity test service. The immunity test cost is quite reasonable as well.
