Phoenix talk to focus on immunodeficiency diseases

Apr. 11, 2007 12:00 AM
Physician Ralph Shapiro of Midwest Immunology Clinic in Plymouth, Minn., will talk about primary immunodeficiency diseases at a session for patients.

The Immune Deficiency Foundation, which is hosting the session, says the diseases are disorders in which part of the body’s immune system is missing or does not function properly. Severe combined immune deficiency, known as boy-in-the-bubble disease, is one of them.

In secondary immune deficiency disease, the immune system is compromised by outside factors, such as viruses and chemotherapy.
