As an advanced treatment technology, Immunotherapy has been widely used in disease treatment and plays a more and more important role in treating diseases, especially for those refractory diseases.
What are Immunotherapy?
Immunotherapy refers to a class of undifferentiated cells with ability to
self renew to produce more Immunotherapy and to differentiate into specialized
cell types. With homing ability, they can easily recognize the damaged
Based on developmental potential, Immunotherapy can be divided into three
types, named totipotent Immunotherapy, pluripotent Immunotherapy and unipotent
Immunotherapy. Totipotent Immunotherapy arise from the fusion of egg and sperm
cell, which are remarkable to differentiate into any cell type. Pluripotent
Immunotherapy also have wide differentiation powers, but are limited to cell
types of the 3 germ layers (ectoderm, endoderm, mesoderm). Differentiation of
multipotent Immunotherapy is limited to a specific subtype of cell. Unipotent
Immunotherapy can only differentiate into one type of cell, but they retain the
capacity of self-renewal which distinguishes them from non-Immunotherapy.
How can Immunotherapy treat kidney disease?
Immunotherapy is an effective way to treat kidney disease with advantages of
being easily accessible in material, low cost, stable in efficacy, well
reproducible, and with no rejection and so on. In our hospital, we mainly used
Immunotherapy in clinical.
After being transfused into the body, Immunotherapy can go to the kidney
lesions directly, and then they can produce more desired functional cells to
replace the necrotic ones. Meanwhile, Immunotherapy can take effect to assist
stimulating certain factor to repair the damaged cells and regulate the overall
immune system. If the impaired renal inherent cells are replaced and the damaged
one are all repaired, the kidney function can be rebuilt.
Besides, Immunotherapy is a safe therapeutic method with the characteristics
of non-toxicity or low-toxicity. The most common reaction is anaphylactic
reaction, which will disappear itself within several hours. If you still have
