Immunotherapy is the newest characteristic therapy of Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, which can treat immune-mediated kidney disease including IgA Nephropathy from the perspective of immune regulation.
Before we talk about the treatment, it is necessary to make the pathogenesis
of IgA Nephropathy clear. IgA Nephropathy is caused due to autoimmune function
deficiency of mucosa. When you get an infection of the upper respiratory tract
(amygdalitis, rhinitis, pharyngitis, etc), gastrointestinal tract or urinary
system, the bacterial virus can enter into your body easily. Then IgA molecue
with abnormal structure, as some type of antigen, will combine with autoantibody
to form immune complex. With the blood circulation, the immune complex will
deposit at glomerular capillary loops and mesangial area, thus damaging the
mesangial cells. After being damaged, the mesangial cells are activated and
start to proliferate. With the accumulation of immune complex, the filtrating
barrier function of mesangial cells is impaired, so the blood cells and proteins
are leaked out. That is why patients with IgA Nephropathy may have blood,
protein or both in urine.
Then how to treat IgA Nephropathy effectively with immunotherapy?
Based on the causes of IgA Nephropathy, immunotherapy aims at treating it
from the root. Under this therapy, we can eliminate the immune complex, repair
the damaged renal intrinsic cells and tissues, and restore the kidney function.
What's more, the immune system gets regulated.
The herbal remedy, called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help us
block further damages, dilate blood vessels, promote the micro-circulation,
repair the damages renal intrinsic cells, and remove the stasis in channels. In
this way, a favorable environment is provided by application of Chinese
Then Immunotherapy is utilized to restore the kidney structure and regulate
the overall immune system. Immunotherapy have ability of self-renewal and
multi-replication. They can defferentiate into desired renal cells to replace
the necrotic cells, thus achieving the goal of restoring the renal function and
regulating the immune system. Therefore, IgA Nephropathy can be treated
fundamentally by immunotherapy.
The crucial point of a good curative effect lies in early stage treatment, so
patients with IgA Nephropathy had better receive effective treatment as soon as
