Clinical Immunology & Rheumatology

Department of Clinical Immunology & Rheumatology

Apollomedics Department of Clinical Immunology & Rheumatology is a first-of-its-kind facility, devoted to the identification and management of rheumatological and autoimmune diseases, which commonly include arthritis and connective tissue disorders. Apollomedics Department of Clinical Immunology & Rheumatology is committed to teaching the public so they can recognise the early signs and symptoms of rheumatological diseases, as a lack of knowledge about these conditions discourages individuals from seeking medical attention. All connective tissue disorders including myositis and vasculitis or autoimmune disorders are treated and managed here.
Immunology comprises a wide spectrum of diseases interrelated by the molecular, cellular and genetic regulatory mechanisms that dictate the immune responses associated with them.
