Immunotherapy is a medical term defined as the "treatment of disease by inducing, enhancing, or suppressing an immune response". Immunotherapy is treatment that uses your body's own immune system to help fight diseases. Immunotherapy is also sometimes called biologic therapy or biotherapy. It is treatment that uses certain parts of the immune system to fight diseases such as kidney disease. This can be done in a couple of ways.
1. Stimulating your own immune system to work harder or smarter to attack the damaged cells
2. Giving you immune system components, such as man-made immune system proteins
Immunotherapy includes a wide variety of treatments that work in different ways. Some seem to work by boosting the body's immune system in a very general way. Immunotherapy is an innovative approach to deal with kidney diseases, which is the result of immune disorder. In our society, a vast majority of kidney diseases are related to the immune disease.
Antibodies and antigens
Antibodies are large Y-shaped proteins. They are recruited by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects like bacteria and viruses. Antigens are classically defined as any foreign substance that elicits an immune response. Each antibody has a unique target known as the antigen present on the invading organism. This antigen is like a key that helps the antibody in identifying the organism. This is because both the antibody and the antigen have similar structure at the tips of their "Y" structures.
Just like every lock has a single key, an antibody has a single antigen key. When the key is inserted into the lock, the antibody activates, tagging or neutralizing its target. The production of antibodies is the main function of the humoral immune system.
Antibodies and immunoglobulins
Immunoglobulins are basically proteins that function as antibodies. The terms antibody and immunoglobulin are often used interchangeably. Immunoglobulins are found in blood and other tissues and fluids. They are made by the plasma cells that are derived from the B cells of the immune system. B cells of the immune system become plasma cells when activated by the binding of a specific antigen on its antibody surfaces.
Your immune system is a complex network of cells, signals, and organs that work together to help kill germs. The immune system defends the body from attack by invaders recognized as foreign. It is an extraordinarily complex system that relies on an elaborate and dynamic communications network that exists among the many different kinds of immune system cells that patrol the body. At the heart of the system is the ability to recognize and respond to substances they are infectious agents or part of the body. The immune system consists of two majors parts: the innate immune system and the back-up system.
Generally speaking, people have a strong innate immune system whose major task is to protect people from being attacked by illnesses. What's more, in order to guarantee the normal operation of the innate immune system, there is also a back-up system. The back-up system starts when the innate immune system can not protect itself from the diseases due to its maladaptation. The invaders are stronger for the immune system's ability to get rid of them. So when the innate immune system is in disorder, it can not successfully and effectively cleanse foreign bodies, then what will happen with the back-up system at the time? In such condition, the back-up will be activated in order to effectively fight against disease, the back-up system will come into play at this time. When all the foreign substances will be cleared up totally with the combination of the innate immune system and back-up system, people will achieve a healthy body once again. Then the back-up system will stop function and the immune system starts to continue to operate alone.
As for people with autoimmune kidney disease, their immune system is easier to be invaded. So many patients have the experience of relapse of the kidney disease. Immune protection uses certain TCM remedy to help promote the patients' immune system in order to avoid its relapse.

Immunotherapy consists of a series of processes, which is a systemic treatment, including 6 steps, such as exact diagnosis, blocking immune reaction, immune tolerance, immune adjustment, immune clearance, immune protection.
A scientific diagnosis is necessary and a must for your doctor to treat your disease. There is no exception with kidney disease. If your kidney is caused by the disorder of immune system, then you need a different test from others. Here we have lots of specific tests for autoimmune kidney damage, it can help confirm the type, amount, deposition of different antibodies in your body.
Blocking Immune Reaction
Immunotherapy is designed to block the scattered damages, when there is deposit of immune complexes in your kidneys, it will cause autoimmune damages in kidney. Your kidneys need to control the condition first to earn the treatment time for the following steps of the therapy.
Immune tolerance is the process by which the body naturally does not launch an immune system attack on its own tissues. Immune tolerance therapy seeks to reset the immune system so that the body stops mistakenly attacking its own organs or cells in autoimmune disease or accepts foreign tissue in organ transplantation. A brief treatment should then reduce or eliminate the need for lifelong immunosuppression and the chances of attendant side effects, in the case of transplantation, or preserve the body's own function.
Neuromodulation and humoral regulation play a very important role in maintaining the stable internal environment. But they can't directly destroy the invading pathogens and also they can't directly remove the damaged and abnormal cells. The immune regulation aims to deal with the abnormal cells. However, it is achieved by the immune system.
When immune adjustment stop working, the existence of immune complex will cause damages to return some time, bur the immune adjustment can only help control the attacking on the kidney for a while. At this time, immune clearance aims to avoid the relapse of autoimmune kidney damage, which combines various herbs and western medicine together.
Even patients insist on treatment and take care for every detail in their life, they do exercise to protect themselves from infections. There are also chances of reconstructing the immune system and avoiding hazards of kidney failure. It is well known that for the people with autoimmune kidney damage, their immune system is easier to be attacked. So many patients experience the relapse of the disease. Immune protection use certain TCM remedy and supplements to help strengthen the immune system.
