These three patients had ENL of moderate severity that was not controlled on 40 mg prednisolone
They performed a double-blind, randomized trial comparing oral indomethacin against oral prednisolone
in 416 patients who presented during a 2-year period to the emergency departments of four Hong Kong hospitals, where acute gout typically is treated in the ED.
All the patients were given oral prednisolone
in a dose of 1mg/kg/day and propranolol in a dose of 0.5mg/kg/day twice a day and increased up to 1.5mg/kg/day BID within three days with close monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure and blood glucose as inpatient.
They also relied more heavily on prednisolone
, taking, for example, a mean dose of 13 mg in the second trimester versus 8 mg in the control group.
In our second patient, there was a relapse of mucosal lesions along with new skin lesions when the dose of prednisolone
was being tapered.
In a rare case in Iranian football the prohibited substances prednisone and prednisolone
were detected in the player's urine sample which was sent to an accredited laboratory of Cologne, Germany for analysis.
The fact that prednisolone
and pentoxifylline have been found to be ineffective is not a big surprise as there was previously only scant evidence supporting their use coming from old and relatively small trials.

Systemic examination was normal: Diagnosis of pyoderma gangrenosum was confirmed and the patient was put on 20mg Prednisolone
and 25mg Dapsone, inj.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), dapsone, colchicine and prednisolone
have been used with good effect.
According to the company, it has received final approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for Prednisolone
Sodium Phosphate Orally Disintegrating Tablets, 10 mg, 15 mg, and 30 mg, and was awarded 180 days of generic drug marketing exclusivity.
Systemic therapy involved either monotherapy with prednisolone
(dose of 25 mg-50 mg daily) in eight patients or combination therapy (see Figure 2) which consisted of at least prednisolone
and other treatments such as tetracycline, dapsone, azathioprine, mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), and adalimumab.
ATLANTA -- Extending the duration of initial prednisolone
treatment from 2 months to 6 months while escalating the dose failed to reduce the incidence of frequently relapsing nephrotic syndrome in children in a randomized, open-label, noninferiority trial.
BDI, BAI, HAM-D and HAM-A scores were compared using the Mann-Whitney U test and the Kruskal-Wallis analysis with regard to the severity of MG and treatment modality (prednisolone
and drug combinations) (all tests were two-tailed).
A 24-year-old man with Addison's disease, who was receiving replacement therapy with prednisolone
, was admitted to our hospital due to findings of both hypocorTisolism and hypercortisolism.
