Immune Research Center
IRC is dedicated to translational research employing PAR techniques to investigate sincere and promising avenues of research that show practical, quick and safe application to treat and potentially cure Alopecia Areata.
IRC’s particular area of focus is the rapidly emerging field of the microbiological function/dsyfunction of the gut, its relationship to autoimmune Alopecia Areata, and the impact of ‘nutritional medicine’ and microbiome restoration on this disease. IRC acts as the host organization for informal RLT-Prommune therapy studies.
As a small, privately-funded organization, IRC relies on private donor contributions and also defrays expenses by applying a cost to participating in RLT studies and providing various resources. In establishing fees and charges, IRC’s goal is to balance the need to support its internal costs but also enable as many alopecia areata sufferers as possible to participate in its programs and purchase its resources.
For enrolled members this site will function as a central location for distributing information and therapy protocols, providing updates, collecting treatment data and results, and providing support, guidance and counseling services. Evaluation and correlation of participant response data will be reported here as it becomes available. A primary goal of this site is to create an organized framework from which we can apply some basic level of ‘controls’ to the study process that will allow for ‘long-distance’ participation. Because of the difficult emotional nature of Alopecia Areata, this site will also enable participants to reach out for emotional support and ask questions as they undergo RLT Prommune therapy, if they choose.
For participants and visitors, email Support to answer your questions is offered from from the home page.
