Stem Cell Transplant is a new therapy to treat kidney disease, and lots of patients with nephropathy are wondering whether Stem Cell Transplant can bring them a hope of recovery. This article will give an introduction of how Stem Cell Transplant treats IgA Nephropathy.
Firstly, let’s have a look at the traditional treatment for IgA Nephropathy in most hospitals. The doctors usually take hormone, tripterygium wilfordill hook, cyclophosphamide and other western medicine to inhibit the springing up of antibodies (dominated by IgA) and immunoglobulin. In fact, these can only focus on the causes of primary disease, but ignore the clearance of IGA receptor siltation and immunocomplex, besides, it can not improve the condition of ischemia and hypoxia in kidney. Therefore, it can not effectively restore the damaged renal mesangial cells and the glomerular filtration membrane, then the glomerular filtration rate can not go back to the normal. And all of these lead to the failure of continual treatment for IgA Nephropathy and the symptoms relapse frequently.
In contrast, the Stem Cell Transplant focuses on the fundamental of IgA Nephropathy. The injected stem cells can go to the renal lesions directly, and effectively restore the damaged renal cells and produce the cells which have been destroyed severely. It can improve the condition of ischemia and hypoxia in kidney, thus the renal cells will gradually refunction. In addition, stem cells could stimulate the renal cells to inactivate the cytotoxic factor released in inflammatory reaction, consequently, entirely prevent the damage for the kidney. In conclusion, Stem Cell Transplant is fundamental way to treat IgA Nephropathy. Moreover, stem cells can also restore the immunity system, inhibit the pathogenic antibodies, so it efficiently prevents the triggers to induce the relapse of disease.
