What is clinical immunology and allergy?

Clinical immunology is the study of disorders of the immune system, including immunodeficiency, autoimmunity, and hypersensitivities that may involve food, insects or certain environmental elements.

The Wesley Hospital’s clinical immunologists have specific skills in the diagnosis, treatment and management of patients with disorders of the immune system and the management and treatment of patients with allergies.

If these disorders affect you, The Wesley Hospital’s immunologists and allergists in Brisbane can diagnose, treat and otherwise manage patients of all ages with disorders such as:

  • Complex allergic disease (eg allergic rhinitis and asthma or eczema).

  • Continuing poor control of asthma, despite regular use of asthma medication.
  • Insect or respiratory allergy when allergen immunotherapy is contemplated.
  • Severe allergies (eg to foods, drugs or insects).
