Stem Cell Therapy for Polycystic Kidney Disease-Hope Medical Group

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder characterized by the growth of numerous cysts in the kidneys. The kidneys are two organs, each about the size of a fist, located in the upper part of a person's abdomen, toward the back. The kidneys filter wastes and extra fluid from the blood to form urine. They also regulate amounts of certain vital substances in the body. When cysts form in the kidneys, they are filled with fluid. PKD cysts can profoundly enlarge the kidneys while replacing much of the normal structure, resulting in reduced kidney function and leading to kidney failure.

When PKD causes kidneys to fail-which usually happens after many years-the patient requires dialysis or kidney transplantation. We recommend getting stem cell treatment before going through such invasive measures. About one-half of people with the most common type of PKD progress to kidney failure, also called end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

Polycystic kidney disease symptoms may include:

. High blood pressure
. Back or side pain
. Headache
. Increase in the size of your abdomen
. Blood in your urine
. Frequent urination
. Kidney stones
. Kidney failure
. Urinary tract or kidney infections

Cysts are noncancerous (benign) sacs that contain water-like fluid. They vary in size and as they accumulate more fluid can grow extremely large. Normally, a kidney weighs less than one-third of a pound (approximately three-quarters of a kilogram), while a kidney containing numerous cysts can weigh as much as 20 to 30 pounds (9.1 to 13.6 kilograms).

Abnormal genes cause polycystic kidney disease, and the genetic defects mean the disease runs in families. Rarely, a genetic mutation can be the cause of polycystic kidney disease. There are two types of polycystic kidney disease, caused by different genetic flaws:

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD).
Signs and symptoms of ADPKD often develop between the ages of 30 and 40. In the past, this type was called adult polycystic kidney disease, but children can develop the disorder. Only one parent needs to have the disease in order for it to pass along to the children. If one parent has ADPKD, each child has a 50 percent chance of getting the disease. This form accounts for about 90 percent of cases of polycystic kidney disease.


Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD).
This type is far less common than is ADPKD. The signs and symptoms often appear shortly after birth. Sometimes, symptoms don't appear until later in childhood or during adolescence. Both parents must have abnormal genes to pass on this form of the disease. If both parents carry a gene for this disorder, each child has a 25 percent chance of getting the disease.

Non-surgical treatments

To repair damaged functional cells, Stem Cell Therapy is often applied. Stem Cell Treatment is an advanced medical treatment and the application of it is based on the original cells which can differentiate into different functional cells when we cultivate them with specific nutrient solution. Through Stem Cell Therapy, kidney functions can be restored effectively and because of this, sufferers can live freely again.

Stem Cell Treatment is a new breakthrough in the world. Can it treat renal failure? The answer is certainly. Stem cells are able to restore damaged cells, repair cell function and treat diseases due to the damaged cells. Patients will not suffer from operational pain if they receive Stem Cell Transplantation. Stem cell are able to rebuild the function of kidneys. It is a better choice to treat renal failure with Stem Cell Therapy than dialysis or organ transplant.

Stem cells have the ability to change the treatment of renal failure. In many cases, patients have got rid of medicine and even dialysis. Stem cells entering the kidneys with blood circulation can renew epithelial cells of kidney tubules and interstitial cells caused by bacterium, virus infection and chronic inflammation. And it can strengthen immune competence of organism to fight with etiological factor and prevent from developing kidney disease.
