Is Stem Cell Therapy ok for FSGS

Is Stem Cell Therapy ok for FSGSStell cell therapy is a controversial treatment in medical feild, but it indeed helps to treat many refractory illnesses well, including kidney disease. FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) is a kidney problem which causes Nephrotic Syndrome and Kidney Failure easily. So far there is no cure for FSGS in medicine, so many patients turn their hope for stem cell. Well, is stem cell therapy ok for FSGS?

In our body, there are different kinds of stem cell and some of them can differentiate into different kind of cells needed by the body. Kidney is an organ which works through different tissues and intrinsic cells like glomerular epithelial cell and glomerular endothelial cell. FSGS is an illness in which glomeruli are injured for some reason. Therefore, by repairing damaged glomeruli, it is possible to get kidney function improved. Since stem cell can differentiate into cells we need with nutrient solution, so with stem cell therapy, FSGS can be treated well.

In stem cell therapy, stem cells are injected into patients’ body to differentiate into kidney intrinsic cells, so as to increase kidney function. However, in some cases of FSGS, due to severe kidney damages, many toxins build up in the body. Under such a condition, when stem cells are injected into patients’ body, they are damaged easily by toxic substances. Therefore, for FSGS patients whose illness has developed to kidney failure stage, treatment effects of stem cell therapy on them is not as good as that on these patients whose FSGS is still in early stage.

For FSGS patients with high levels of toxins in blood, it is better for them to purify blood firstly if they want to take stem cell therapy. Only in clean blood, can stem cells function well and also can kidney function be improved successfully.
