Cortisone Pharmacodynamics
GCS. It has a significant effect on carbohydrate metabolism and, to a lesser extent, on water and electrolyte metabolism. It has mineralocorticoid activity: sodium retention, potassium loss, fluid retention in the body. Promotes glycogen accumulation in the liver, increases blood glucose content, increases urinary excretion of nitrogen. It has anti-inflammatory, desensitizing and anti-allergic effects, and immunosuppressive activity.
Its anti-inflammatory activity is caused by inhibition of phospholipase A2, which leads to inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis, decrease in secretion of macrophage chemotactic factor, decrease in migration of macrophages and lymphocytes to inflammation focus, stabilization of lysosomal membranes and prevention of secretion of lysosomal enzymes. Immunosuppressive effect is associated with a decrease in the number of immunocompetent cells, with decreased binding of immunoglobulins to cell receptors, suppression of blast-transformation of B-lymphocytes, decreased number of interleukins, lymphokines, circulating immunocomplexes, complement fractions.
Increases urinary calcium excretion, activates bone tissue lysis through a mediated increase in calcitonin, increases osteoclast activity, and decreases osteoblast function.
It has a catabolic effect, increases protein breakdown. Has lipolytic effect, increases the content of fatty acids in the blood. Reduces ACTH production by the anterior pituitary lobe, which leads to suppression of activity and subsequent atrophy of the adrenal cortex.

Addison’s disease, secondary chronic insufficiency of the adrenal cortex (in hypopituitarism). Allergic, inflammatory, infectious-allergic, autoimmune diseases.
