Study Description
Brief Summary:
A Swiss national, multi-centre, online patient and research database will be created, using the existing ESID database server system. This database contains disease-specific data from patients with primary (inborn) immunodeficiency diseases (PID).

Condition or disease
Primary Immunodeficiency Disease

Detailed Description:

The project aims to compile clinical and laboratory data of patients with primary immunodeficiencies (PID) in order to improve diagnosis, classification, prognosis and therapy. The online technology offers features not available in former databases such as access control,security functionality, and maintenance of data integrity during transactions and system errors, online back up, online optimization, scalability and online SQL-queries as well as a long term documentation of patients.

Furthermore the database can be used for the submission and storage of molecular diagnostic results and thus allow the compilation of genotype and phenotype observations, which is of essential and immediate use for the patient himself and patient care. An attending physician may gain information on similar cases of a rare PID disease in Switzerland and European countries and use these insights for therapy. In addition, it will be possible to obtain an insight on side effects. Thus, the system also meets the requirements of an optimal platform for Phase IV studies of post-licensing drug surveillance-programs.
