Nephrotic Syndrome is not an isolated disease, but a group of disease with syndrome caused by various kinds of Kidney Diseases. It is characterized with a large of proteinuria, serious edema, albuminemia and hyperlipemia.
In the conventional therapies, the patients mainly use glucocorticoid and
antibiotics to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. No doubt that the hormone therapy has
played an important role in treating the disease. The patients’ symptoms can
alleviate and even disappear after using it. Therefore, the patients just think
that the disease recovers. However, a mild infection such as colds may trigger
the disease again and even aggravate the original disease. Facing the
troublesome relapses, the patients with Nephrotic Syndrome begin to find a
better therapy instead of hormone.
For the patients with Nephrotic Syndrome, proteinuria is the primary cause of
other symptoms. Therefore, treating proteinuria is the key in treating Nephrotic
Syndrome. In the conventional therapies, as the treatments simply treat the
proteinuria, but not its fundamental causes. That is the fundamental cause of
relapse of the disease.
In the normal cases, when blood flow through kidneys, the glomeruli can
filtrate the harmful wastes out of body and preserve the useful substance in
body. However, for the patients with Nephrotic Syndrome, with the decline in the
renal function, the glomerular basilar membrane loses the normal filtration and
barrier functions. As a result, the protein that body need leaks into urine.
Therefore, in order to treat proteinuria, the patients should repair the damaged
glomerular basilar membrane. Immunotherapy plays its important role on this
Immunotherapys are a group of undifferentiated original cells with
differentiation and regeneration abilities. They can regenerate into cells that
have the same characteristics with the original cells or differentiate into
tissues and cells with specialized functions. In treating Nephrotic Syndrome,
Immunotherapy can differentiate into new cells to replace the damaged renal
intrinsic cells to play their role. As a result, the glomerular basilar membrane
will recover its normal function. In this way, the proteinuria can be treated
from its root cause.
