Prednisolone Pharmacodynamics
Prednisolone has anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, antipruritic and anti-exudative effects.
It reduces the formation, release and activity of inflammatory mediators (histamine, kinin, lysosomal enzymes). Inhibits cell migration to the site of inflammation; reduces vasodilation and increased vascular permeability in the inflammation focus. Reduces exudation due to vasoconstrictor action.
Suppresses the action of macrophages, target cells, cytokines, which are involved in the development of the reaction in the form of allergic contact dermatitis. Prevents the access of sensitized T-lymphocytes and macrophages to the target cells.
