How does the drug work?
Penetrating through cell membranes, it forms complexes with specific cytoplasmic receptors. Then these complexes penetrate into the cell nucleus, bind to DNA (chromatin) and stimulate mRNA transcription and subsequent synthesis of various enzymes, which explains the effect of GCS in systemic use. GCS not only have a significant impact on the inflammatory process and the immune response, but also affect carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. They also have an effect on the cardiovascular system, skeletal muscles and the central nervous system.
