Glucocorticosteroids classification

beta 2-Adrenergic receptors (beta 2R) are widely distributed and mediate a wide range of cellular responses in lung. Because glucocorticosteroids increase expression of beta 2R in cell lines, we have investigated the effects of glucocorticoids on the beta 2R mRNA level and the number of beta 2R in human peripheral lung in vitro. Incubation of lung tissues with dexamethasone (Dex) elevated both beta 2R mRNA level (as measured by Northern blot analysis) and beta 2R number (as measured by [125I]iodocyanopindolol binding). The increased accumulation of beta 2R mRNA could be detected at 15 min ( +/- -fold) and the maximal accumulation occurred at 2 h ( +/- -fold). The Dex-induced increase in beta 2R mRNA returned to the control level by 17 h. The increase in beta 2R number ( +/- -fold) was slower, reaching a maximum between 17 and 24 h. Dex increased beta 2R mRNA in a time- and concentration-dependent manner that was abolished by the steroid receptor antagonist mifepristone (RU-38486 or RU-486). The stability of beta 2R mRNA was unchanged by Dex, and a nuclear run-on assay revealed that Dex approximately doubled the transcriptional rate of the beta 2R gene. These observations suggest that glucocorticoids act on steroid receptors to increase beta 2R expression by increasing the rate of beta 2R gene transcription.

The drug's most common side effects are poor or reduced appetite, vomiting, lack of energy, diarrhea, and weakness. Occasionally, more serious side effects, including bloody diarrhea, collapse, severe sodium/potassium imbalance, and destruction of the adrenal gland may occur, and may result in death. In 2014, with input from CVM, the manufacturer updated the information about patient monitoring and side effects on the package insert. Although not proven to be caused by Vetoryl, some additional side effects reported to CVM and now included on the package insert are adrenal insufficiency, shaking, elevated liver enzymes and elevated kidney tests.

With prolonged intake, individuals may develop Cushing's syndrome , marked by changes in the redistribution of body fat (leading to buffalo hump, moon face, appearance of abdominal striae), high risk of infections, acne and other skin lesions, osteoporosis (and higher risk of pathological fractures), changes in blood lipid levels and diabetes. Cushing's syndrome generally marks the onset of full-blown physical glucocorticoid dependence. If you are experiencing one or more symptoms of Cushing's syndrome, abrupt cessation may increase the risk of complications. A case study [2] suggested that people with tuberculosis, asthma and other pulmonary conditions can develop Cushing syndrome within 6 months with a dosage of 30 mg/day.

The efficacy and safety of ENTOCORT EC for maintenance of clinical remission were evaluated in four double-blind, placebo-controlled, 12-month trials in which 380 patients were randomized and treated once daily with 3 mg or 6 mg ENTOCORT EC or placebo. Patients ranged in age from 18 to 73 (mean 37) years. Sixty percent of the patients were female and 99% were Caucasian. The mean CDAI at entry was 96. Among the four clinical trials, approximately 75% of the patients enrolled had exclusively ileal disease. Colonoscopy was not performed following treatment. ENTOCORT EC 6 mg per day prolonged the time to relapse, defined as an increase in CDAI of at least 60 units to a total score greater than 150 or withdrawal due to disease deterioration. The median time to relapse in the pooled population of the 4 studies was 154 days for patients taking placebo, and 268 days for patients taking ENTOCORT EC 6 mg per day. ENTOCORT EC 6 mg per day reduced the proportion of patients with loss of symptom control relative to placebo in the pooled population for the 4 studies at 3 months (28% vs. 45% for placebo).
