Treatment

  • Any other aspects of treatment that may interfere with your ability to function. 2. Variability of your response to treatment. Your response to treatment and the adverse or beneficial consequences of your treatment may vary widely.[ssa.gov]
  • Treatments and outcomes For many SID disorders treatment of the primary condition will lead to resolution of the immunodeficiency.[immunology.org]
  • Treatment The principal treatments for primary immunodeficiency include: 1. Protective isolation —prevention of infections 2. Antibiotic prophylaxis and acute treatment of infections 3.[theasthmacenter.org]
  • Prophylactic treatments include attenuated androgens and C1 inhibitor.[primaryimmune.org]
  • The most common clinical indication of an underlying immunodeficiency is recurrent infections with frequent treatment failures.[www2.vet.cornell.edu]

Prognosis

  • Deficiencies of the components of the MAC (C5-C9) tend to lead to less severe infections and have a better prognosis with careful management.[patient.info]
  • Prognosis The prognosis depends on the type of immunodeficiency disorder. People with Bruton's agammaglobulinemia who are given injections of gamma globulin generally live into their 30s or 40s.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • With advances in medical science the prognosis for these patients is now much improved.[immunology.org]
