Immunotherapy: A Fundamental Treatment For IgA NephropathyIs there a fundamental treatment for IgA Nephropathy? Yes, immunotherapy is the fundamental treatment for IgA Nephropathy at present. But why?

First, we should what IgA Nephropathy is.

IgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune kidney disease which is caused by IgA immune disorder. The immune disorder will cause deposition of the IgA immune globulin in the mesangial area. These deposition can lead to inflammation which will damage surrounding kidney tissues and make them fail to work properly. Normally, no antigens invade patients’ body, while when the immune system becomes abnormal, antigen invade and combines with IgA antibody. IgA immune complex is the combination of antigen and antibody. In this condition, the effective treatment to stop the formation of IgA immune complexes is to normalize and enhance patients’ immune complexes. What’s more, we also need to discharge IgA immune complexes having depositing in the kidneys out of body. In this way, inflammation and further kidney damage can be stoped successfully.

How does immunotherapy treat IgA Nephropathy?

Immunotherapy has six steps, including immune diagnosis, immune clearance, immune blocking, immune tolerance, immune adjustment and immune protection. And immunotherapy is aiming to remove immune complexes, restore kidney function and adjust immune system. First, common western medicines are applied to control symptoms such as high blood pressure, hematuria and proteinuria, etc. However, western medicines fail to treat the disease from the root. In this condition, Chinese herbal medicines play an important role in immunotherapy due to its four functions, including dilating blood vessels, anti-coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and anti-inflammation. For instance, with degradation and promoting blood circulation, immune complexes can be removed; with anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and removing blood stasis and providing nutrients for kidneys, kidney function can be improved gradually. Besides, some ingredients in the Chinese Herbal Medicine can adjust immune system. As long as your immune system is improved, the occurrence rate of IgA Nephropathy will be reduced.
