Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The treatment of patients with immune nephropthies is discussed: rapidly progressive nephritis, lupus nephropathy, Wegener granulomatosis, Goodpasture syndrome, Schonlein-Henoch nephritis. A combined treatment of plasmapheresis and immunosuppressants is applied. A definite result, specially with the cases of Wegener granulomatosis, is registered for certain number of the patients. Together with the usual tests: CIC, immunoglobulins, complement, etc. a method for controlling of the detoxic efficiency of the treatment is suggested. This is a biologic method- the level of paramecium caudatum in media from patients' plasma is registered in relation to time. After plasmapheresis the life of paramecium caudatum is considerably prolonged.
