A synthetic anti-inflammatory glucocorticoid derived from cortisone. It is biologically inert and converted to prednisolone in the liver. [PubChem]

Latest findings

Ultimately, a combination of topical Fluticasone, Cyclosporine, Acitretin, oral Prednisone, and intramuscular methotrexate yielded mild to moderate improvement for periods of time. [source, 2016]
Most participants (n = 175, 87 %) were taking non-biologic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and over one third (n = 74, 37 %) were taking Prednisone. [source, 2016]
Patient’s SOB has significantly improved with plasmapheresis and low dose Prednisone alone (no Cyclophosphamide). [source, 2016]
Patient finished seven cycles of plasmaphoresis and tapering doses of Prednisone. [source, 2016]
Systemic corticosteroids (intravenous Dexamethasone) equals to Prednisone 1-4 mg/kg Prednisone per day was given to SJS subjects, 3-4 mg/kg per day for SJS/TEN overlap, and 4-6 mg/kg per day for TEN (Table 1). [source, 2016]
At diagnosis, TBM patients commenced TB treatment (prescribed for a total duration of 9 months) and Prednisone (starting dose: 1.5 mg/kg per day, weaned over 6 weeks). [source, 2016]
Wallis et al. studied the effects of Prednisone on antiretroviral-treated HIV infection in a randomized, placebo-controlled trial including 24 subjects. [source, 2016]
Prednisone or placebo was given at a dose of 40 mg per day (8 times higher than in our study) for 8 weeks, followed by a 4-week period of 20 mg per day. [source, 2016]
Two individuals treated with Prednisone were found to have asymptomatic osteonecrosis of the hip [33]. [source, 2016]
Hourly Prednisolone Acetate and oral Prednisone 60 mg were initiated. [source, 2016]
