NuHealth’s Immunology Laboratory at Nassau University Medical Center diagnoses a variety of autoimmune diseases, including lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. For pregnant women, our laboratory helps ensure that they are protected from a number of infectious diseases that can threaten the health of their unborn children, including measles, mumps and rubella. We also perform protein electrophoresis to monitor diseases, including multiple myeloma.
For HIV-infected patients, we provide monitoring of the CD4+ lymphocytes quantified by flow cytometry. Continual monitoring is an important tool to assess the effectiveness of anti-viral therapy in treating HIV.
