Stem Cell Therapy to Treat End Stage Polycystic Kidney Disease

Stem Cell Therapy to Treat End Stage Polycystic Kidney DiseaseAs one inherited disorder, Polycystic Kidney Disease may pass from generation to generation, and it causes quite a number of kidney cysts to grow in kidneys. In most cases, PKD progresses into end stage gradually. At present, Stem Cell Therapy begins to be used to treat kidney failure as well as end-stage polycystic kidney disease.

The progression of PKD

Generally, PKD aggravates slowly. Most patients don’t have any symptoms in the first decades of years. Then, enlarged kidney cysts will oppress their surrounding kidney tissues and replace kidney functioning tissues, resulting in renal ischemia and anoxia state. Finally, about 50% of PKD patients have kidney failure by age 60. Thereby, to reverse end stage polycystic kidney disease, two therapeutic effects should be achieved. One is to shrink all PKD kidney cysts, and the other is to improve renal ischemia and anoxia condition and rebuild kidney structure.

What can stem cell therapy do for patients with end-stage PKD?

The theory of stem cell therapy is that stem cells have the potential of unlimited proliferation and multi-directional differentiation, so it can help rebuild damaged tissues and organs caused by various factors. The basic research found that stem cells can differentiate into inherent kidney cells and renal parenchymal cells that determines stem cell therapy is effective on rebuilding kidney structure and repairing damaged kidney cells.

Is Stem Cell Therapy enough to treat advanced PKD?

The answer may make patients disappointed. Although stem cell therapy can help restore kidney functioning system, it is unable to prevent the relapse of kidney cysts. Hence, some auxiliary therapies are also needed. For example, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Hot Compress Therapy, Medicated Bath, Acupuncture, and so on, all can help regulate kidney patients’ internal environment, so as to inhibit the secretion of sac fluid.

A systemic treatment option can give a brand new hope for patients with end stage polycystic kidney disease. If you want to try it, consult the doctor online or leave a message below firstly, so doctors here can give you more relative information.
