How Does Immunotherapy Treat Kidney Function 20%

2013-07-03 15:04

Generally speaking, it is too early to receive a kidney transplant for patients with kidney function 20%. For patients with stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease, in addition to dialysis and kidney transplant, Immunotherapy is another treatment option. Now let’s see how Immunotherapy treats kidney function 20%.

As a systematic treatment, Immunotherapy contains six steps:

-Scientific tests. The antibodies level and amount and the position of different kinds of toxins are different with different patients. Besides, we should know clearly the damage to tubules and glomeruli. So some tests have to be done for guiding the treatment. Tests of beta 2 microglobin, homocysteine, lymphocyte subsets, Cystatin C and retinol binding protein are also necessary.

-Blocking immune reaction. According to scientific diagnosis, the medicine, does and duration will be very exact according to patients’ immune condition. Apart from immunosuppressive agents, Tc-MDP and Matrine will also be used in China.

-Immune tolerance. We have to assess the condition before the inflammation in the kidneys becomes serious again as the disease often relapses. Small dose of immunosuppressive agents will be given regularly, which can prevent the relapse of the disease. This is to let our body accept the fact that there are immune complexes in the kidneys and the antibodies will stop attacking kidneys temporarily.

-Immune regulation. Immune complexes can not always in our kidneys. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be used to promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis thus increasing the blood flow in the kidneys. Chinese herbal medicines will eliminate those immune complexes through degradation and blood circulation. Patients will see cotton-like materials discharged out in urine after 7 days of the treatment. At the same time, oral taking medicines will be used to strengthen the immunity and nourish blood and qi.

-Immune protection. Glucocorticoid and oral taking Chinese medicines will play key role in repairing the damaged inherent cells and recovering kidney function. Active material in Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can regulate the immune system and recover the self renewal of the body.

-Immune clearance. As a matter of fact, this step runs through the above five steps. Immune adsorption can effectively remove the toxins in the body and control the disease in the shortest time so that we can win time in repairing the kidneys.

From the information mentioned above, we can know that once patients have no urine output, Immunotherapy will not play very obvious treatment effect. So patients with kidney function 20% should not delay their condition any more.
