Answer

Corticosteroids

These agents may be useful in suppressing immune cell function.

Prednisone (Deltasone, Meticorten, Orasone, Sterapred)

Immunosuppressant for treatment of autoimmune disorders; may decrease inflammation by reversing increased capillary permeability and suppressing PMN activity. Four times as potent as natural glucocorticoids.
