Lecture on Functional Immunology

ELISA/ACT Biotechnologies founder, Dr. Russell Jaffe, recently lectured on the topic of functional immunology to students of National University of Health Sciences.  Joined by former NUHS faculty Dr. Erica Mennerik, the two presented the foundations and practical applications of functional immunology, including numerous case reports documenting success in removing obstacles to repair and evoking the […]

First Line Comprehensive Care Part I:

Russell Jaffe, MD, PhD, CCN, NACBThis article addresses aspects of the human healing response in the context of what the evidence supports in the use of functional assays to improve diagnostic precision, patient-specific comprehensive case management, and out-comes monitoring.Essential and innate to human life is our immune system, with a principal action in defense and […]

Predictive Biomarkers

Russell Jaffe MD, PhD, CCN, and Jayashree Mani, MS, CCNPredictive biomarkers are a few tests that can now be referenced to goal values whose interpretation can include a lifestyle action plan that enhances functional cost and outcome effectiveness, adding years to life and life to years.This article addresses:what these predictive biomarkers are and why they […]

The Biochemical-Immunology Window:

Russell Jaffe, MD, Ph.D. and Oscar Rogers Kruesi, MD Molecular regulation of brain metabolism and function can now be measured selectively. Patients with mood and thought disorders can often be classified based on this information. Clinical management can often be improved by therapeutic interventions based on advanced chemical and immunologic testing techniques. The relevant information is […]

Immune Defense and Repair Systems in Biologic Medicine I:

Diagnosis, treatment, tests and interpretation.By Russell Jaffe, MD, Ph.D.,CCNA common clinical assumption is that homeostatic mechanisms and immune defense and repair reserves are intact or can be spontaneously restored. This is not the case in autoimmune illnesses where homeostasis and immune defenses have been disrupted as marked by intracellular acidosis, impaired electron transport, and depletion […]

Gut Hyperpermeability

The gut is a major, potential portal of entry into the body for foreign antigens. Only its intact mucosal barrier protects the body from foreign antigen entry and systemic exposure.This mucosal barrier is made up of non-immunological components (mucous coat, mucous membranes) working independently and in concert with the local mucosal immune system (secretory IgA, […]
