The flu shot is your best defence against the flu. It can save lives by protecting you, if you are exposed to the virus, preventing you from getting very sick and most importantly helping protect the ones you love by being less likely to spread the virus.

Immunoglobulin Replacement Therapy Guidelines

Immunodeficiency Canada assembled a team of Immunologists from across Canada’s diagnosis and treatment centers to develop guidelines for Immunoglobulin Replacement Therapy. With their experience and knowledge this team produced guidelines published in the Lymphosign Medical Journal, September 2017.  It is now the standard for diagnostic and treatment centres of Primary Immunodeficiency across Canada.

“Immunodeficiency Canada has a direct impact in the care and treatment of patients with Primary Immunodeficiency.  Through our network of Immunologists, we brought the expertise together to provide the best treatments for patients based on science.”
