Catalan Association for PIDs (ACADIP)

IPID stands for “Immune phenotyping in Immunodeficiency”. IPID is an ESID (European Society for immunodeficiency) authorized internet based open accessible platform which serves scientists and clinicians in the area of phenotyping of immune cells in Immunodeficiency.
The purpose of IPID is to provide the current knowledge on the particular deregulation of the homeostasis of the immune system in specific primary immunodeficiency disorders (PID). In addition IPID will develop standardized staining protocols and provide diagnostic guidelines for phenotyping the various PIDs.
