Corticosteroids class-dependently inhibit in vitro Th1- and Th2-type cytokine production.

Abstract

Corticosteroids (CS) are very potent immunosuppressive agents and are widely used to treat inflammatory diseases. On the basis of their clinical efficacy and potency CS have been divided into different classes. In the present study we investigated whether the class-associated effects of CS are correlated with a differential in vitro effect on cytokine… (More)
