Sorry to learn that your daughter is having vasculitis Treatment Treatment focuses on controlling the inflammation with medications and resolving any underlying disease that triggered your vasculitis. For your vasculitis, you may go through two treatment phases — first stopping the inflammation and then preventing relapse (maintenance therapy). Both phases involve prescription drugs. Which drugs and how long you need to take them depend on the type of vasculitis, the organs involved and how serious your condition is. Some people have initial success with treatment, then experience flare-ups later. Others may never see their vasculitis completely go away and need ongoing treatment. Medications Your doctor may prescribe a corticosteroid drug, such as prednisone or methylprednisolone (Medrol), to help control inflammation. Side effects of corticosteroids can be severe, especially if you take them for a long time. Possible side effects include weight gain, diabetes and bone thinning (osteoporosis). If a corticosteroid is needed for long-term (maintenance) therapy, you'll likely receive the lowest dose possible. Other medications may be prescribed with corticosteroids to control the inflammation so that the dosage of corticosteroids can be tapered more quickly. These medications are sometimes called steroid-sparing and may includemethotrexate (Trexall), azathioprine (Imuran, Azasan), mycophenolate (Cellcept) or cyclophosphamide. The specific medication that you'll need depends on the type and severity of vasculitis you have, which organs are involved, and any other medical problems that you have. Biologic therapies such as rituximab or tocilizumab may be recommended, depending on the type of vasculitis you have. Please keep in touch with a good rheumatologist, it should not be difficult as you are in chennai.

My sister 38 years old female. She is suffering from anti gbm antibody disease from last 4 months. Initially she has only symptoms of renal involvement she used immunosuppressants and prednisalone for 2 months. Her renal function not improved because of side effects she stopped those tablets. After 10 days pulmonary symptoms began (severe cough, sputum with blood streaks, low grade fever) now she is using cyclophosphamide and on regular dialysis. Is there any other way to improve her condition? please suggest a solution for this problem.

As it is a known auto immune disease which is affecting the kidney and lungs and we have already seen that once you stopped the treatment pulmonary symptoms had developed and if we discontinue the treatment than there can be death due to kidney and lung failure and with ongoing treatment we are clearing the auto antibodies and making her survive for more years to come

Is CEF is right chemo treatment nat ER +/PR + and Her 2- I am 41, unmarried, premenausal female. Diagnosed with Invasive breast cancer (lump on the right chest wall-upper inner quadrant high up) lymph node and axillary node positive. Type: ER +, PR+,her 2 -.Size of the tumor is 2.7 cm.and they say its a LABC (locally advanced breast cancer) .Started with NACT (CEF every 3 weekly). Done with the first chemo 15 days back with CEF (cyclophosphamide-750, epirubicin,-120 fluorouracil-750 mg. I am really confused as I don't see much data on hormone positive and Her 2 - patients given this CEF chemo (either adjuvant or neoadjuvant). My fellow patient (of similar types) from other hospitals are given AC/T. Also I met one of senior oncologist who suggested to shift from chemotherapy and instead start Neoadjuvant Endocrine Therapy (tamoxifen 20 mg for next 3 months). Would really appreciate if you share your expert opinion the right treatment path for my case.

Hello Lybrate user! LABC means locally advanced breast cancer- decided not only with tumor size but also changes of breast skin, involvement of lymph nodes, and inflammatory changes. 3 cycles of FEC/ CEF or 4AC as neoadjuvant (chemotherapy before surgery) chemotherapy is good to give to reduce size of tumor and control local decease and also in cases of breast conservation surgeries. After surgery they might start TC as adjuvant chemotherapy (chemotherapy after surgery. So it is one of the treatment. Once neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemo will finish you have to take hormonal therapy.

Ideally follow doctors advice as there is relatively little information on this disorder. One tip. Natural food based Vit A and sunlight rich Vit D will help. If she can sit for 10 to 15 mibs daily in early morning sunlight and have red, orange rich vegrtables and fruits, it will help. If you can approach a Healer. Some drugless support will helpnboth of you. Regards.

Treatment for Churg?Strauss syndrome includes glucocorticoids (such as prednisolone) and other immunosuppressive drugs (such as azathioprine and cyclophosphamide). In many cases, the disease can be put into a type of chemical remission through drug therapy, but the disease is chronic and lifelong

I am suffering 2 years from nephrotic syndrome (membranous nephropathy). How many years to treat nephrotic syndrome?

I am suffering 2 years from nephrotic syndrome (membranous nephropathy). How many years to treat nephrotic syndrome?
Membranous nephropathy is a slowly progressive disease and leads to progressive kidney damage. Treatment depends on the amount of proteinuria and s. Albumin. If it is too high then we need to treat it with drugs like tacrolimus. Cyclophosphamide or rituximab. Otherwise ACEI ARBs are sufficient. Would be important to your lab values before deciding further.

What is wrangler granulomatosis disease?
What are the symptoms and is it permanently curable?
Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), formerly known as Wegener granulomatosis, is a rare multisystem autoimmune disease of unknown etiology. Its hallmark features include necrotizing granulomatous inflammation and pauci-immune vasculitis in small- and medium-sized blood vessels. Several other drugs may help decrease the function of the immune system cells causing inflammation. They include cyclophosphamide, azathioprine (Azasan, Imuran) and methotrexate (Rheumatrex, Trexall). Rituximab (Rituxan) is another option for treating granulomatosis with polyangiitis.
