Staffed by infectious-disease and hematologic specialists, the Immunology Center divides diagnostic and treatment services between three groups of patients:
- General infectious disease patients. Clinicians from Jefferson's Division of Infectious Diseases consult on complicated infectious-disease cases. They offer experienced care for Lyme disease, osteomyelitis and tuberculosis, among other diseases.
- Patients with HIV/AIDS. Clinicians in the center follow HIV/AIDS patients as their primary physicians, overseeing all of the various types of care that such patients may require. Jefferson has a longstanding HIV/AIDS treatment program that has helped to influence drug therapies.
- Patients Participating in Clinical Trials
The Division of Infectious Diseases at Thomas Jefferson University is designated to participate in clinical trials making certain experimental drugs available to HIV infected patients. Individuals who are HIV positive and meet the enrollment requirements are eligible to enroll in clinical trials.The division has an active HIV clinical research program bringing state-of-the-art treatments to patients. These clinical trails consist of investigation drugs, therapies and treatment strategies for both the naive to treatment and the treatment of experienced patients.
