This is the introductory chapter to the section . A number of advances in basic immunology, molecular biology, and cellular physiology have resulted in major developments in cellular immunologic assays relevant to clinical and diagnostic immunology. The application of these techniques in research and clinical laboratories has led to their high sensitivity and specificity. These techniques afford the clinical immunology laboratorians, the clinical allergists and immunologists, and physicians in allied specialties with assays and techniques which make possible the precise diagnoses of primary and secondary disorders of the immune system. The chapters presented in this section incorporate newer diagnostic assays that have come into use. Approaches for molecular diagnosis of chronic granulomatous disease have been presented. There is direct application of these assays in clinical medicine related to primary and secondary immune deficiency, autoimmunity, hematology, rheumatology, transplantation, and a wide array of clinical disorders.
