In extreme cases, primary immunodeficiency causes patients to live practically in isolation to avoid coming into contact with germs. This program looks at genetic defects that define the condition and spotlights treatments developed to help people with PI live essentially normal lives. In addition, Treating Primary Immunodeficiency introduces viewers to patients who have been living with the condition for years to illustrate how they deal with it on a day-to-day basis. Dr. Richard Wasserman, of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, and Dr. Jordan Orange, of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, are featured.
