Is there clinical research happening on X-linked agammaglobulinemia?
As of May 2019, there were several studies for X-linked agammaglobulinemia listed on clinicaltrials.gov, a government website that provides regularly updated information about federally and privately supported clinical trials. This is not an exhaustive list of current research. Some of these studies were specific for X-linked agammaglobulinemia. Others were studies on primary immunodeficiencies as a whole. Primary immunodeficiencies are a group of disorders in which the body's immune system does not function properly.
