Answer

Corticosteroids

Corticosteroids have anti-inflammatory properties and cause profound and varied metabolic effects. These agents modify the immune response to diverse stimuli.

Prednisone (Deltasone, Meticorten, Orasone, Sterapred)

May decrease inflammation by reversing increased capillary permeability and suppressing PMN activity.
