Immunotherapy: Latest Treatment for Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis

2013-02-08 17:07

Latest Treatment for Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis Characterized with purpuric skin rash, proteinuria and other symptoms, Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis (HSPN) affects many people’s life. The physical condition and mental stress urge them to look for latest treatment for Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis. Immunotherapy, compared with traditional steroid therapy and dialysis, has fewer side effects, so it is preferable for these patients with HSPN.

Why so many patients are looking for a new treatment?

It has been revealed that Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis is due to the deposition of immune complexes in the kidney. Just like other kidney diseases, HSPN is not an easy condition to be treated. When people are diagnosed with this disease, some doctors are used to prescribing some steroids such as prednisone to control patients’ condition. To some extent, we must affirm the quick and marked effects of steroid in remitting people’s symptoms especially when the patient has a heavy loss of protein. However, Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis relapses easily, if the patients only rely on steroids. This drives patients to find a latest treatment for their disease.

How does Immunotherapy help treat HSPN?

Since HSPN is a condition where the kidney damage occurs as the consequence of immune complexes deposition, the ultimate treatment goals are removing those immune complexes and activating damaged kidney functioning units. According to this principle, Immunotherapy, combining blood purification tech and the essence of traditional herbal medicines, aims to treat kidney disease such as Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis caused by immune disorders.

Firstly, some purification techs are used selectively to clean those immune complexes, in order to provide a good internal environment to the following treatment. Secondly, with external application herbal medicines and oral talking medicines, Immunotherapy is able to regulate patients’ immune system, enhance their self-curative ability and activate the damaged but not necrotic cells. As a natural treatment, Immunotherapy may need a relatively longer time to treat Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis than steroid, but it can prevent its relapse and avoid many side effects.

If you decide to use this latest treatment for Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Nephritis, please be patience. I am sure you will find you has got much more than you expect, after a period of accepting Immunotherapy.
