Partnering with Immunologists

At Paragon, we work with immunologists from all over the nation to treat immune-related conditions. An immunologist is a medical professional who specializes in treating conditions relating to the immune system, such as allergies, asthma, and primary immunodeficiency disorders. According to the leading experts in immunology, when part of the immune system is either absent or not functioning properly, it can result in an immune deficiency disease. When the cause of this deficiency is hereditary or genetic, it is called a primary immunodeficiency disease (PIDD).

 

We specialize in specialty infusible and injectable therapies used to treat these health conditions. We provide treatment that can be administered in the home setting or at one of our infusion centers. Some of the medications we offer include Cinqair, Fasenra, Nucala, Xolair, anti-infectives (antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial therapies), and IVIG. These medications are both life-saving and life-giving, providing patients with relief from symptoms associated with their condition.

 

IVIG, or Immunoglobulin Infusion Therapy, is one of the most important and successful therapies for people with primary immunodeficiency diseases (PI), specifically for those who are antibody deficient, as well as various autoimmune disorders. Ig is a tested and safe solution made from human plasma containing antibodies. This therapy is used to protect patients who cannot fight infections due to the low production of antibodies or someone whose immune system is attacking their body’s healthy cells. Ig is prepared from blood donated by thousands of people, creating a super-concentrated collection of antibodies capable of warding off viruses and/or bacteria.

 

 

IVIG therapy can be used to treat:

 

  • Primary Immunodeficiency
  • Kawasaki Disease
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy
  • Lupus
  • Myositis
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • HIV-infection
  • Asthma
  • And more

 

Each person’s experience with an immune-related condition is different. They may face unique challenges or symptoms. Our goal is to help patients overcome the challenges they face, big or small. At Paragon, not only do we provide patients with access to medication, supplies, and infusion clinics, but we also offer clinical support, educational resources, benefits verifications, and more. Our team is here to advocate for patients every step of the way on their health journey so that they receive the best care possible. If you or a loved one are seeking a healthcare company that puts people first, tell your provider that you want to join the Paragon family.
