Steroid

Steroids are the mainstay of therapy for a variety of disorders, including autoimmune diseases, and for immune suppression following solid organ transplantation.

Steroids are medicines that are used to treat many chronic diseases. Steroids are very good at reducing inflammation (swelling) and mucus production in the airways of the lungs. They also help other quick-relief medicines work well.

Steroid
  • Product Description

    Steroids are a man-made version of hormones normally produced by the adrenal glands, two small glands found above the kidneys.

    The steroids (corticosteroids) used to treat chronic lung diseases are not the same as anabolic steroids, used illegally by some athletes for bodybuilding. Corticosteroids do not affect the liver or cause sterility.

  • Guidelines

    When taken in doses higher than the amount your body normally produces, steroids reduce redness and swelling (inflammation). This can help with inflammatory conditions such as asthma and eczema.

    Steroids also reduce the activity of the immune system, the body's natural defiance against illness and infection.

  • Clinical Research

    Examples of oral and injectable steroids are as follows:

    Oral Steroids: Methylprednisolone, Oxymetholone, Methandrostenolone, Stanozolol
