Answer

Anti-Inflammatory Agents

Anti-inflammatory agents modify the immune response to diverse stimuli.

Prednisone

Prednisone is an immunosuppressant used to treat autoimmune disorders; it may decrease inflammation by reversing increased capillary permeability and suppressing polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) activity. It stabilizes lysosomal membranes and suppresses lymphocytes and antibody production.

Colchicine (Colcrys)

Colchicine decreases leukocyte motility and phagocytosis in inflammatory responses.
