Why Endoxan is Given in FSGS PatientsEndoxan, commonly known as Cyclophosphamide, is a drug used to treat various kidney diseases. In this article, let's discuss this question, "Why Endoxan is given in FSGS patients?" Want to get professional advice? Chat with our online doctor now!

Endoxan is a type of drug known as a cytotoxic agent. It is particularly useful in the treatment of certain cancers and disorders of the immune system. While, how does this drug work to treat FSGS?

Actually, FSGS is a kind of immune disorder. Due to low immunity or immune dysfunction, massive immune complexes will form and get deposited in the epithelial cells of the kidneys. In order to remove these foreign substances, inflammatory response will be induced, causing damage to renal cells and tissues.

In treating this kidney disorder, Endoxan can be prescribed to suppress the excess immune response and control symptoms like protein in urine, swelling, etc. After taking this medicine, the symptoms can be relieved soon. Unfortunately, under this symptomatic treatment, the disease often relapses easily.

What's worse, the drug may result in side effects including nausea, vomiting, hair loss, skin rashes, infections, etc.

In order to treat immune kidney disease like FSGS fundamentally from the root cause, only taking drugs like Endoxan is not enough, patients are suggested to take systematic therapy which can work to not only eliminate the symptoms or complications, but also restore the renal function and regulate the whole immune system. Only in this way, patients can expect the best curative effects. For more information, you can leave a message in the below or Email us at kidney-support@hotmail.com.
