Answer

Corticosteroids

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

Prednisone (Deltasone, Orasone, Sterapred)

Immunosuppressant for treatment of autoimmune disorders. May decrease inflammation by reversing increased capillary permeability and suppressing PMN activity. Oral prednisone is usually sufficient to control disease activity.
