The use of intra-articular (IA) glucocorticoids for reducing pain and inflammation in patients with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other inflammatory arthropathies is widespread among primary care physicians, specialists, and non-specialists in the United States. Injectable glucocorticoids have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties which can be effective in improving clinical parameters such as pain, range of motion, and quality of life. After injection into the IA space… Expand
Treatment with Synthetic Glucocorticoids and the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis
TLDR
There is a considerable variation in individual physiology, probably related to different genetic profiles which regulate GC receptor activity, which may represent an interesting basis for possible future research fields. Expand
Glucocorticoid induced adrenal insufficiency
TLDR
The factors affecting the risk of GI-AI are discussed, a regimen for the glucocorticoid taper is proposed, and suggestions for assessment of adrenal function recovery are made. Expand
Comparative assessment of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression secondary to intrabursal injection of different glucocorticoids: a pilot study
TLDR
A single 40-mg intrabursal injection of MA or TA is sufficient to suppresses HPAA up to 45 days, and patients should be instructed to recognize and report symptoms suggestive for hypocortisolism, to provide prompt diagnosis, and eventually, treatment, thus avoiding severe complications. Expand
Systemic Absorption and Side Effects of Locally Injected Glucocorticoids
TLDR
It is clear that both intra‐articular and epidural injections can have systemic effects for weeks and that complications may be associated with their use, including Cushing syndrome, loss of bone density, infection, and hyperglycemia. Expand
Therapeutic Review of Methylprednisolone Acetate Intra-Articular Injection in the Management of Osteoarthritis of the Knee - Part 2: Clinical and Procedural Considerations.
TLDR
The review found that specialist guidance and limited evidence suggests that injection safety concerning warfarin may be enhanced by ensuring that the international normalized ratio level is within therapeutic range, however, the risk-benefit evaluation concerning non vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants remains challenging. Expand
Therapeutic Review of Methylprednisolone Acetate Intra‐Articular Injection in the Management of Osteoarthritis of the Knee – Part 1: Clinical Effectiveness
TLDR
Overall, MPA shows efficacy for symptom relief in OA knee, with limited evidence which indicates that a single dose intra-articular MPA injection can provide short to medium term benefits for pain, with less evidence for beneficial effects on function or stiffness. Expand
Glucocorticoid Therapy and Adrenal Suppression
Glucocorticoids are steroid hormones produced by the adrenal cortex. They have pleiotropic effects and contribute substantially to the maintenance of resting and stress-related homeostasis. AlthoughExpand
Glucocorticoid signaling and osteoarthritis
TLDR
A literature search in the molecular pathways that link the osteoarthritic joint to the glucocorticoid receptor signaling is performed and it is hoped that this information will advance research in the field and propose new molecular targets for the development of more optimized therapies for osteearthritis. Expand
Intra-articular therapies for osteoarthritis
TLDR
Current and future intra-articular drug therapies for osteoarthritis are highlighted, including corticosteroids, hyaluronate, and more controversial treatments marketed commercially, namely platelet rich plasma and mesenchymal cell therapy. Expand
Dosing of intra-articular triamcinolone hexacetonide for knee synovitis in chronic polyarthritis: a randomized controlled study
TLDR
As no difference in outcome was found between the compared doses, the lower 20 mg THA dose should be preferred in IAGC treatment for knee synovitis in chronic polyarthritis. Expand

Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression after repeated intra-articular steroid injections.
TLDR
Eight patients with rheumatoid arthritis who had regular intra-articular injections of methyl Blackpool, prednisolone acetate for periods ranging Lancs FY3 8NR from one to 11 years at intervals of five to six weeks showed suppression of HPA axis Reference function when tested both by short Synacthen and insulin.

Glucocorticoid resorption and influence on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis after intra-articular treatment of the knee in resting and mobile patients
TLDR
Immobilisation does not appear to retard glucocorticoid resorption after intra-articular administration, and further studies are needed to clarify the mechanism behind the beneficial effects of rest after intra -articular glucoc Corticoid treatment for knee synovitis. Expand
Intra-articular methylprednisolone acetate injection at the knee joint and the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis: a randomized controlled study
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of intra-articular corticosteroid injection (IACI) of methylprednisolone acetate (MPA) on the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis inExpand
[Intra-articular glucocorticoid injections in joint diseases].
TLDR
Intra-articular glucocorticosteroid injections are widely used in mono- or oligoarticular flares of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and other aseptic inflammatory joint diseases, as well as in osteoarthritis, and may be of considerable clinical value in the management of aseptic arthritis, if administered on correct indications using a correct technique.

Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis regulation of inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
Data supporting the hypothesis that the HPA axis provides one of the key mechanisms for inhibitory regulation of the inflammatory response in animal models of arthritis are reviewed, along with data from studies in humans. Expand
The Effect of Intra-articular Injection of Betamethasone Acetate/Betamethasone Sodium Phosphate at the Knee Joint on the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis
TLDR
Intra-articular corticosteroid injection of 6 mg of betamethasone acetate/betameth asone sodium phosphate at the knee joint was not significantly associated with secondary adrenal insufficiency at the time points tested. Expand

TLDR
IACIs are associated with reduction in inflammatory markers like C-reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rate that start few days following the IACI and could last for months and the effect on inflammatory cytokines is immediate with significant decrease within hours. Expand
Reduction of cortisol levels after single intra-articular and intramuscular steroid injection.
TLDR
It is suggested that decreased adrenocortical secretion, as reflected in depressed cortisol levels, can result from a single, low-dose, intra-articular or intramuscular injection of depot corticosteroids. Expand
Intra- Articular Corticosteroids
TLDR
A literature review suggests that judicious use of intra- and periarticular corticosteroids is very helpful in temporarily reducing pain and inflammation in musculoskeletal structures and may facilitate increased motion and function in selected cases. Expand
Involvement of the hypothalamic--pituitary--adrenal/gonadal axis and the peripheral nervous system in rheumatoid arthritis: viewpoint based on a systemic pathogenetic role.
TLDR
The belief that combined therapeutic approaches on a neuroendocrine immune basis are of crucial importance in a pathogenetically oriented therapy of RA is reinforced. Expand
