Latest research on Mometasone Furoate

Mometasone is a medium-potency synthetic corticosteroid with antiinflammatory, antipruritic, and vasoconstrictive properties. Studies in asthmatic patients have demonstrated that mometasone provides a favorable ratio of topical to systemic activity due to its primary local effect along with the extensive hepatic metabolism and the lack of active metabolites. Though effective for the treatment of asthma, glucocorticoids do not affect asthma symptoms immediately. Maximum improvement in symptoms following inhaled administration of mometasone furoate may not be achieved for 1 to 2 weeks or longer after starting treatment. he antiinflammatory actions of corticosteroids are thought to involve phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, lipocortins, which control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes.

Latest findings

DPP4 induced by IL-13 was significantly inhibited by Mometasone Furoate (MF). [source, 2016]
Glucocorticosteroids of very high (Clobetasol Propionate, Betamethasone dipropionate – ointments), high (Mometasone Furoate, Fluticasone propionate, Methylprednisolone aceponate, Betamethasone valerate, Hydrocortisone butyrate – ointments) and low (flumethasone pivalate – solution, Hydrocortisone acetate 1% – cream) potency of action were used in all the study group in similar percentages – 70.2, 69.5 and 78.8, respectively. [source, 2015]
A diagnosis of lichenoid drug eruption secondary to Tenofovir was made and the patient was started on oral corticosteroids at a dose of 30 mg/day of Prednisolone along with topical corticosteroids (Mometasone Furoate 0.1% cream twice daily), emollients and oral anti-histamines. [source, 2015]
All samples were collected during 5 days in November 2013, in which Beclomethasone dipropionate, Mometasone Furoate, Prednisolone 17-valerate, and 21-acetate were produced. [source, 2015]
It is interesting to note that chlormadinone acetate and Mometasone Furoate reached the concentration of 1.28 μg/m3 and 1.22 μg/m3, respectively, also in a day in which the production was devoted to Beclomethasone dipropionate (Table 2). [source, 2015]
Considering pad-tests on the external surface of the workers' smock, results were especially high for Beclomethasone dipropionate, Mometasone Furoate, and Prednisolone 17-valerate 21-acetate, as expected given that they were the compound in production. [source, 2015]
The mean values of these analytes were almost constantly over 10 μg, rising to 0.13–0.66 mg for Beclomethasone dipropionate and Mometasone Furoate. [source, 2015]
We treated our patient with a mid potent topical corticosteroid (Mometasone Furoate) for three weeks and most of the lesions disappeared [Figure 5]. [source, 2015]
Thus it is better to use Nasal steroid as it minimizes systemic side effects of corticosteroids especially with Mometasone Furoate, which is known by its low bioavailability. [source, 2015]
High first-pass metabolism and consequently negligible oral bioavailability are found for FF, Fluticasone propionate (FP), Mometasone Furoate (MF) and ciclesonide (CIC), whereas significant oral bioavailability is found for FLU, Triamcinolone Acetonide (TAA), Budesonide (BUD) and Beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) (Table 1).
