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 Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital is a referral center for the Jeffrey Modell Foundation (JFM) and Immunodeficiency Foundation (IDF).
