Amrita Hospital Kochi launches comprehensive clinic for inborn errors of immunity

CIEICA (Comprehensive Inborn Errors of Immunity Clinic Amrita) is a one-stop centre for the diagnosis and treatment of inborn errors of immunity

Amrita Hospital, Kochi, achieves another significant milestone by officially launching the Comprehensive Inborn Errors of Immunity Clinic Amrita (CIEICA) as it celebrates its 25th anniversary. The state-of-the-art clinic is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of inborn errors of immunity, a group of genetically inherited disorders that impair the body’s ability to fight off infections and regulate immune responses.

CIEICA brings together a multidisciplinary team of experts who specialise in the field of inborn errors of immunity. The team includes pediatric rheumatologists, pediatric haematologists, primary immune deficiency experts, pediatric geneticists, and paediatric infectious disease experts. By combining their expertise, the team provides comprehensive and personalised care to patients, ensuring the best possible outcomes.

CIEICA is committed to delivering patient-centred care and improving the quality of life for individuals with inborn errors of immunity. The clinic not only prioritises childhood cases but also acknowledges the existence of these conditions in adult patients. With a commitment to offering continuous support and comprehensive long-term care, the team at CIEICA aims to empower patients and assist them in achieving a fulfilling life.

Said Dr Suma Balan, Pediatric Rheumatologist, Amrita Hospital, Kochi “We are glad to launch the Comprehensive Inborn Errors of Immunity Clinic Amrita, officially at Amrita Hospital, Kochi. Multiple disciplines of Amrita Hospital have been working collaboratively in the area of inborn errors of immunity for the past three years. Now we have created an umbrella of CIEICA where the patients can have a one-stop space for hassle-free care.”

“Earlier, we were unable to do the diagnosis of the conditions of inborn errors of immunity as access to genetic testing was very difficult. In the last decade, the situation has improved. The CIEICA clinic represents a significant step forward in our commitment to delivering advanced and specialised healthcare services. Through our dedicated team of experts, we aim to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals affected by inborn errors of immunity,” she added.
