  2. Educating general and specialty practicing clinicians about diagnosis and therapy for PID via lectures, seminars, and conferences.
  3. Training of immunologists/hematologists in molecular diagnosis, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and gene therapy via an exchange program among various institutions.
Diagnosis:
 
  1. To support the establishment of centers/laboratories for the diagnosis of PID (in India).
  2. Routine immunology laboratory diagnosis
  3. Molecular diagnosis
Treatment:
 
  1. Treatment with immunoglobulin via different routes (e.g., subcutaneous and intravenous)
  2. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (cord blood and bone marrow)
  3. Gene therapy
Research:
