Is Chemotherapy Useful to Treat IgA Nephropathy

Is Chemotherapy Useful to Treat IgA NephropathyChemotherapy is the abbreviation of chemotherapeutic drugs. IgA Nephropathy is one type of glomerulonephritis that may cause kidney failure gradually. Can chemotherapy help treat IgA Nephropathy?

Chemotherapy is one therapy to prevent the proliferation, infiltration and transfer of cancer cells. In some countries, chemo medications are used to treat IgA Nephropathy through killing abnormal kidney cells. However, in fact, the therapeutic effects of chemotherapy are not as good as we imagine. This is because chemo medications may damage patients' normal cells easily during killing the abnormal cells. This can induce a series of side effects or life-threatening complications easily.

Since chemotherapy will destroy patients' immune system, patients must be at a high risk of severe infections. What's worse, if IgA Nephropathy patients' kidney function has declined, they will be unable to be on chemotherapy tolerance. In view of this, chemotherapy isn't one good treatment option for patients with IgA Nephropathy.

Is there any other therapy that can treat IgA Nephropathy effectively apart from chemotherapy? After long-term researches, kidney experts for generations finally created a great breakthrough in treating IgA Nephropathy. This treatment is called Immunotherapy.

Because IgA Nephropathy is attributed to IgA deposits and immune disorder, the treatment should be able to remove IgA deposits and reverse patients' kidney damage. Immunotherapy has six steps, which are linked closely and focus on treating kidney disease due to immune problem from the root. If patients' kidney condition is not so bad, patients can get obvious improvements in 1 or 2 months. Another great advantage of this therapy is that it can prevent the relapse of IgA Nephropathy successfully, which is one big concern for these patients.
