Standard Immunophenotyping Panel.
Shedding some light on overall immune function.
Do you get chronic infections? Have you had recurrent pneumonia? Does it take you longer to recover from the common cold?When the body’s natural defenses don’t work as they should, a person is more susceptible to common infections (viral or bacterial), more serious or unusual infections, or inflammatory conditions that complicate recovery. It is possible that the antibodies which normally fight infection are absent, low, or fail to work properly. A closer look at the immune cells that make antibodies and play an important role in our ability to fight off infections reveals a better understanding of the body’s defenses.Many conditions can cause a person to be immunocompromised, including cancer treatment, smoking, bone marrow or organ transplantation, immune deficiencies, poorly controlled HIV or AIDS, and prolonged use of corticosteroids and other immune-weakening medications.

EOE Eosinophilic Esophagitis (difficulty swallowing/food getting stuck in the esophagus due to allergic inflammation).
Progenitor Eosinophil Immunophenotyping Panel.
Immunology/allergy Lab of Oklahoma offers a validated clinical test that can be useful in monitoring eosinophilic esophagitis disease activity, and potentially reduce the need for or frequency of major exposure testing (e.g. endoscopy and tissue biopsy) with downtime.
