Australian researchers identify a new disease
Date:5/17/2010

ng. The defect in Katie's immune cells has been fixed. To our knowledge this is the first time this disorder has been reported. We hope this will help anyone who has presented with the same symptoms and had no success with treatments," said Dr Maher Gandhi.

"Now I don't get sick. I am really not used to it and keep waiting to get sick. I am now back to full time study and loving it," said Katie, now 23 and completing a Bachelor of Business.

"I would like to thank the researchers for letting me know I was not completely alone in this fight and for shedding light on the reason for my illness. They devoted so much time and energy so I can live a normal life."

QIMR's Clinical Immunohaematology Laboratory is funded by the NHMRC, the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland, Cancer Council of Queensland and the Queensland Smart State initiative.

The results were published in March in Clinical Infectious Diseases.
