How to Treat Nephritis with Immunotherapy
Nephritis refers to the inflammation of glomeruli in kidney. If untreated, it is very susceptible to develop into Renal Failure. Therefore, it is very important for the patients with Nephritis to receive the disease as early as possible.
Immunotherapy has showed its dramatic effect in the treatment of Nephritis.
Autoimmunity plays the major role in Nephritis. In healthy condition, our immune system can prevent the invasion of the foreign pathological substances into our body so we can keep in healthy condition. However, sometimes the immune system has dysfunction or disorder. As a result, it can not protect our body normally. When the foreign pathological substances like virus, bacteria and so on invade into body, the antibodies are activated to fight against them. For immune disorder or disturbance, they fail to defeat them. On the contrary, the antibodies bind with antigens and deposit in glomeruli. The body will do its best to remove the immune complexes leading to inflammatory response. When the response proceeds excessively, it will cause damage to renal tissues and cells.
Therefore, clearing the immune complexes and blocking the excessive inflammatory response are two crucial processes in the treatment of Nephritis.
In immunotherapy, we apply Chinese medicines to clear up the immune complexes. On one hand, the Chinese medicines can degrade immune complexes and then finally the degraded complexes will be secreted from body. On the other hand, Chinese herbal medicines can regulate the patients' autoimmunity and improve their body's clearance ability.
Once the immune complexes are removed, the inducement of inflammatory response will be removed. Therefore, the damage to renal tissues and cells is inhibited.
Moreover, as the immune complexes have damaged the renal tissues and cells, it is essential for us to receive relative treatment to repair the damaged ones and replace the necrotic cells with new ones. In this way, the renal function will improve dramatically and even recover normal.
