Association between glucocorticoids treatment and viral clearance delay in patients

Glucocorticoids are a type of corticosteroid hormone that is very effective at reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune system. Inflammation is the way our immune system responds to harmful substances and trauma and is part of our healing process. However, if the usual control mechanisms that turn the process of inflammation off aren’t functioning properly and it continues unabated, our tissues can become damaged. Continued inflammation is associated with many chronic conditions including betamethasone Celestone Soluspan. When given at recommended dosages for short durations of time, mglucocorticoids are considered safe. One-off doses of glucocorticoids, even if they are large, or short-course therapies of less than one-week have few harmful effects. However, more regular or extended dosing has been associated with a number of severe side effects.
