A Swiss national, multi-centre, online patient and research database will be created, using the existing ESID database server system. This database contains disease-specific data from patients with primary (inborn) immunodeficiency diseases (PID).
The project aims to compile clinical and laboratory data of patients with primary immunodeficiencies (PID) in order to improve diagnosis, classification, prognosis and therapy. The online technology offers features not available in former databases such as access control,security functionality, and maintenance of data integrity during transactions and system errors, online back up, online optimization, scalability and online SQL-queries as well as a long term documentation of patients.
Furthermore the database can be used for the submission and storage of molecular diagnostic results and thus allow the compilation of genotype and phenotype observations, which is of essential and immediate use for the patient himself and patient care. An attending physician may gain information on similar cases of a rare PID disease in Switzerland and European countries and use these insights for therapy. In addition, it will be possible to obtain an insight on side effects. Thus, the system also meets the requirements of an optimal platform for Phase IV studies of post-licensing drug surveillance-programs.

Hypothesis: Cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) prevent respiratory tract infections in patients with primary immunodeficiency.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate diagnostic immunization protocol of rabies vaccine for diagnosis the patients with primary immunodeficiency disorders and study humoral and cellula...
Routine exercise has been established as an effective way to improve overall health. The value of exercise has been established in many diseases, however, there are no studies investigating the impact...
A few rare monogenic primary immunodeficiencies (PID) are characterized by chronic intestinal inflammation that resembles Crohn's disease (CD). We investigated whether 23 genes associated with 10 of t...
We report on a patient with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive disease with a primary orbital melanoma treated with surgery and adjuvant radiation.
Vaccines were originally developed in order to prevent or ameliorate infectious disease. As knowledge of immune function and the appreciation of immunodeficiency has developed, researchers have used v...
Secondary malignancy post haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for malignant disorders is well recognized. There are very few published reports on malignancy post HSCT for Primary Immunodef...
Species of the genus LENTIVIRUS, subgenus primate immunodeficiency viruses (IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUSES, PRIMATE), that induces acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in monkeys and apes (SAIDS). The genetic organization of SIV is virtually identical to HIV.
Forms of combined immunodeficiency caused by mutations in the gene for INTERLEUKIN RECEPTOR COMMON GAMMA SUBUNIT. Both severe and non-severe subtypes of the disease have been identified.
Specific practices for the prevention of disease or mental disorders in susceptible individuals or populations. These include HEALTH PROMOTION, including mental health; protective procedures, such as COMMUNICABLE DISEASE CONTROL; and monitoring and regulation of ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTANTS. Primary prevention is to be distinguished from SECONDARY PREVENTION and TERTIARY PREVENTION.
Mucocellular carcinoma of the ovary, usually metastatic from the gastrointestinal tract, characterized by areas of mucoid degeneration and the presence of signet-ring-like cells. It accounts for 30%-40% of metastatic cancers to the ovaries and possibly 1%-2% of all malignant ovarian tumors. The lesions may not be discovered until the primary disease is advanced, and most patients die of their disease within a year. In some cases, a primary tumor is not found.

A rare neoplasm of large B-cells usually presenting as serious effusions without detectable tumor masses. The most common sites of involvement are the pleural, pericardial, and peritoneal cavities. It is associated with HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 8, most often occurring in the setting of immunodeficiency.
