Cyrex’ Systems Immunology Approach to Predictive Medicine

For decades, the goal of the field of immunology has been to delineate detailed pictures of the processes involved in humoral- and cell-mediated immunity. Recently, a new field of study has emerged; this is the field of Systems Immunology, which incorporates all the various components of immunity fused into a comprehensible entity.

As clinicians, we begin with patient stories then utilize laboratory evidence to understand pathophysiology, root causes of illness and develop a treatment strategy.  However, the treatment plan is incomplete without a deep understanding of the immune dysregulation.  Kelly McCann, MD, MPH will share 3 cases of complex chronic illness: Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, Long Haul Covid and Chronic Pain.  Aristo Vojdani PhD, MSc, CLS will implement Systems Immunology to provide immunologic strategies.  Fundamental to the Systems Immunology approach is the integration of these different kinds of immunological measurements (antibodies and lymphocytes) that quantitatively describe the immune response following exposure to environmental factors (food, toxic chemicals, pathogens).  It is a powerful way to understand the immune system, especially within the context of complex chronic illness.

Join us for this fascinating discussion on Cyrex’ systems immunology approach to predictive medicine in the context of humoral- and cell-mediated immunity with case reports and the use of biomarkers of diagnostic and prognostic values will be presented in the upcoming webinar by Dr. McCann and Dr. Vojdani.

  • Aristo Vojdani, PhD
    Aristo Vojdani, PhD
    World Leader in Immunology Research

    Aristo Vojdani obtained his BSc, MSc and PhD in microbiology and clinical immunology from Bar-Ilan University, Israel, with postdoctoral studies in comparative immunology at UCLA and tumor immunology at Charles Drew/UCLA School of Medicine and Science. He is a Clinical Professor at Loma Linda University in California, and an Adjunct Professor at the Lincoln College of Professional, Graduate and Continuing Education at the National University of Health Sciences. His ongoing research focuses on the role of environmental triggers in complex diseases, and he has developed more than 300 antibody assays for the detection of autoimmune disorders and other diseases. He has 17 US patents, over 200 articles, and 2 books, “Neuroimmunity and the Brain-Gut Connection” and “Food-Associated Autoimmunities: When Food Breaks Your Immune System,” to his name. He is the CEO of Immunosciences Lab in Los Angeles, California, the Chief Scientific Advisor for Cyrex Labs in Phoenix, Arizona, and sits on the editorial board of 5 scientific journals. His many awards include the Herbert J. Rinkel Award (American Academy of Environmental Medicine), the Linus Pauling, PhD Award (American College for Advancement in Medicine), and the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute Lifetime Achievement Award.

  • Jeff Bland, PhD
    Jeff Bland, PhD
    Functional Medicine Founder and Pioneer

    Dr. Jeffrey Bland is a personable and highly respected thought leader who has spent more than four decades focused on the improvement of human health.

    He is known worldwide as the founder of the Functional Medicine movement, which represents his vision for a care model that is grounded in systems biology and informed by research that he has a unique ability to synthesize. His pioneering work has created the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute (PLMI), as well as the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the global leader in Functional Medicine education. Since 1991, hundreds of thousands of healthcare practitioners have participated in PLMI and IFM programs, and this collective knowledge has positively impacted the lives of patients all over the world.
