Why Nephrotic Syndrome Is Refractory
Nephrotic Syndrome is a refractory disease in clinic. Usually, after a period of hormone treatment, most of the patients can have some relief in clinical symptoms. However, once they reduce the hormone dosages or encounter infections, the disease will reoccur at once. Why Nephrotic Syndrome is so refractory? Is there an effective treatment for nephritic syndrome?
Immune dysfunction plays a major role in Nephrotic Syndrome. Our human body has a strong immune system including innate immune system and back-up system to keep us stay in a healthy and normal state. When foreign pathological substances invade into body, the antibodies are activated by the immune system to defeat them. However, in Nephrotic Syndrome, the patient's innate immune system can not function normally. As a result, the innate immune system to send excess message to activate back-up immune system resulting in hypersensitive immune reaction. The reaction can cause inflammation of kidneys thus leading to kidney damage.
The conventional hormone therapy can suppress the inflammation of kidneys temporarily. However, the immune complexes which cause inflammatory injury of kidneys still exist in kidneys and the patients'innate immune system is not corrected yet. Therefore, once the patients reduce hormone dosage or encounter other inducing factors, the immune inflammation will reoccur again. That is why Nephrotic Syndrome is so refractory.
To treat Nephrotic Syndrome effectively and avoid its relapse, it is essential to clear up the immune complexes and correct the abnormal innate immune system. Here immunotherapy is recommended to the patients with Nephrotic Syndrome.
Immunotherapy aims at treating Nephrotic Syndrome from its underlying causes. On one hand, it can degrade the immune complexes and make them dissolve in blood. Afterwards, they will be discharged out of body through urination. On the other hand, it can help rebuild the innate immune system so as to avoid relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome fundamentally.
Although Nephrotic Syndrome is a refractory kidney disease, it is possible for the patients to receive a good recovery and get rid of relapse. In this way, they will be able to prevent aggravation of renal function effectively.
