Why Run this Test?

The most recognized function of sIgA includes its role in “immune exclusion” in which it prevents viruses, bacteria, and other antigens from adhering to and penetrating epithelial mucosa. SIgA may also inhibit inflammatory processes that damage the mucosa, and preliminary evidence suggests that it may play a role in inducing an antigen specific immune response by a non-inflammatory mechanism.

This pooled saliva collection is an incredibly valuable, yet simple, test for every patient. Add it on to a HPA Stress Profile.
