Immunology is a branch of biomedical science that deals with the immune system response to foreign antigenic challenge. Immunology studies the physiological functioning of the immune system in states of both health and disease as well as malfunctions of the immune system in immunological disorders like allergies, hypersensitivities, immune deficiency, transplant rejection and autoimmune disorders.
Modern laboratory technologies provide the possibility to study the antigen-antibody reactions in panels for testing allergens, food intolerance, and pathogen specific antibodies against various types of infection agents.
Biochemistry is a branch of biomedical science that deals with the structures, functions and interactions of biological macromolecules, such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids. The chemistry of the cell also depends on the reactions of smaller molecules and ions. These can be inorganic, for example water and metal ions, or organic, for example the amino acids, which are used to synthesize proteins. The mechanisms by which cells reassure energy supply via chemical reactions are known as metabolism.
Modern methods are applied to study enzyme activity, amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids metabolism, cofactor deficiency etc. Nutrients metabolism is assessed at genetic and biochemical level.
