What is Immunology?

Immunology is the study of diseases of the human body's built-in system. In a healthy person, the immune system helps the body battle infection by rejecting foreign viruses and bacteria. When the immune system is defective, it can fail to defend the body or even attack it.

Our Rochester Regional Health immunologists and researchers who study immunology are continuously working to develop increasingly advanced immune therapies and vaccinations. 

Common Conditions

Major immune system disorders include:

  • Addison's Disease
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Celiac Disease
  • Colitis
  • Chrone's Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Epstein Barr
  • Hodgkin's Disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Legionnaire's Disease
  • Lupus
  • Lymphoma
  • Shingles
  • Toxic Shock Syndrome

Signs & Symptoms

Indicators that you may have an immune system disorder vary widely depending on the location of the abnormal immune response, but include:

  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Persistent, recurrent infections
  • Poor response to treatment to infections
  • Delayed recovery from illness


Rochester Regional Health immunologists will find the best medications for you - designed to fight against the molecules causing your immune system disease. They have found that the most effective immunology medications include antibiotics, antifungal medications and preventative treatments such as flu shots and vaccinations. Our immunologists possess years of experience and success in identifying and treating immunodeficiency and antibody deficiency in their parents.

Rochester Regional Health is active in supporting efforts of the Center for Disease Control and other organizations to ensure that vaccine safety is continuously monitored for not only patients but also citizens of the United States.
