Treatment and testing for asthma, allergies, immune deficiencies and rheumatologic disorders
The SLUCare pediatric allergists and immunologists treat infants, children, adolescents and young adults, and perform comprehensive testing for asthma, allergies, immune deficiencies and rheumatologic disorders.
As an academic medical practice, we also conduct cutting-edge clinical research into the mechanisms underlying asthma, allergies and immunodeficiency. We are a major center in an NIH-sponsored primary immunodeficiency disease treatment consortium headed by Dr. Morton Cowan at the University of California, San Francisco.
Additionally, we are the only pediatric referral program for immune deficiencies in Missouri. Our immunodeficiency program at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center is a referral center for the Jeffrey Modell Foundation (JFM) and Immunodeficiency Foundation (IDF).
We provide clinical care for a variety of allergic and immunologic diseases, including:
- Allergic and non-allergic rhinitis
- Allergic conjunctivitis
- Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
- Food allergies
- Eosinophilic esophagitis/gastroenteritis
- Drug allergies
- Latex allergies
- Adverse reactions to vaccines
- Insect allergies
- Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
- Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
- Sinusitis, fungal sinusitis
