BACKGROUND: A rare subset of sarcoidosis, neurosarcoidosis, is reported to occur in 5-7% of sarcoid patients and can manifest in a variety of ways. The most common are facial paralysis and optic neuritis, less commonly causing cochleovestibulopathy, blindness, anosmia, and other cranial nerve (CN) palsies. The sensory deficit may be severe and psychiatric symptoms may result from the effects of the disease or steroid treatment. Although MRI-compatible cochlear implants are now available, concerns about the feasibility of recoverable hearing with cochlear implantation in these patients as well as the practical difficulty of disease monitoring due to implant artifact must be considered...

Background: Exclusive enteral nutrition (EEN) and corticosteroids (CS) both induce similar rates of remission in mild to moderate pediatric Crohn's disease (CD), but differ with regard to mucosal healing. Our goal was to evaluate if EEN at diagnosis was superior to CS for improving long term outcomes. Methods: We prospectively followed newly diagnosed children <17 years with mild to moderate disease at baseline for two years in the GROWTH CD study. Patients were evaluated at baseline and at 8, 12, 78, and 104 weeks...

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of blood sampling on animal welfare in a total of 60 NTac:SD rats and 72 C57BL/6NTac mice of both sexes. Blood was sampled either by sublingual vein puncture, tail vein puncture or by retrobulbar plexus/sinus puncture under light isoflurane anaesthesia and, additionally, by facial vein puncture in mice. Non-punctured animals as well as isoflurane-anaesthetised animals were used as controls. Pre- and post-puncture sucrose intake (1.5% w/w) was measured in rats, and nest building scores were studied in mice for 24 h post-puncture...

1. Budesonide, a potent topical corticosteroid, reported to have low oral bioavailability in mice, rat, dog and human due to rapid first pass metabolism. However, there is insufficient information available in literature regarding the role of intestine and or liver responsible for the first pass metabolism of budesonide. 2. Current study in rats investigates the role of intestine and liver in first pass metabolism of budesonide using two in vivo models. Additionally, budesonide was also evaluated in in vitro assays such as thermodynamic solubility, permeability in Caco-2 cells and stability in simulated gastric (SGF), intestinal fluids (SIF) to understand the underlaying cause for low oral bioavailability...

Almost fifty percent of patients with schizophrenia experience some type of dermatitis. The standard treatment for dermatitis is a topical corticosteroid. Despite their demonstrated effectiveness, topical corticosteroids are associated with various side effects that may limit their use. These include generalized adverse effects from systemic absorption, such as suppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. While dose-related, oral corticosteroid-induced psychiatric symptoms, such as psychosis, are well documented, the literature is devoid of cases of topical corticosteroids precipitating psychosis...

INTRODUCTION: Rhinitis and rhinosinusitis are commonly encountered in pregnant women. Intranasal corticosteroid (INCS) sprays are generally safe and effective in the treatment of these conditions in the general population. However, the use of some of these INCS sprays during pregnancy is still controversial. OBJECTIVE: To review the current literature about the safety of intranasal corticosteroid sprays during pregnancy. METHODOLOGY: Using different search engines, each type of INCS was reviewed separately (triamcinolone, beclomethasone, budesonide, fluticasone propionate, fluticasone furoate, mometasone, and ciclesonide)...

Acute spinal cord injury (SCI) is a traumatic event that results in disturbances to normal sensory, motor, or autonomic function and ultimately affects a patient's physical, psychological, and social well-being. The management of patients with SCI has drastically evolved over the past century as a result of increasing knowledge on injury mechanisms, disease pathophysiology, and the role of surgery. There still, however, remain controversial areas surrounding available management strategies for the treatment of SCI, including the use of corticosteroids such as methylprednisolone sodium succinate, the optimal timing of surgical intervention, the type and timing of anticoagulation prophylaxis, the role of magnetic resonance imaging, and the type and timing of rehabilitation...

Kevin Lynch, Oliver Treacy, Jared Q Gerlach, Heidi Annuk, Paul Lohan, Joana Cabral, Lokesh Joshi, Aideen E Ryan, Thomas Ritter
Dendritic cellular therapies and dendritic cell vaccines show promise for the treatment of autoimmune diseases, the prolongation of graft survival in transplantation, and in educating the immune system to fight cancers. Cell surface glycosylation plays a crucial role in the cell-cell interaction, uptake of antigens, migration, and homing of DCs. Glycosylation is known to change with environment and the functional state of DCs. Tolerogenic DCs (tDCs) are commonly generated using corticosteroids including dexamethasone, however, to date, little is known on how corticosteroid treatment alters glycosylation and what functional consequences this may have...

BACKGROUND: Inhaled corticosteroids are used to treat pediatric asthma. The shaking of a pressurized metered-dose inhaler (pMDI) is required to ensure consistency of emitted dose. Delays between shaking and actuating the pMDI are frequent during administration of aerosols to children where a valved holding chamber is used. METHODS: In a recent clinical trial, we used a monitoring device to record shaking and actuation of the pMDI and the inhalation profiles of children with asthma while they were inhaling fluticasone hydrofluoroalkane from a valved holding chamber onto an external filter...

Vedolizumab is a gut-selective humanized monoclonal antibody that binds selectively to the α4 β7 integrin and acts as a lymphocyte-homing antagonist. It is indicated in ulcerative colitis and Crohn disease. We report a case of acute interstitial nephritis following vedolizumab infusion in a 55-year-old white woman treated for severe Crohn disease resistant to several therapies. Other kidney disease causes were ruled out. Glucocorticoids were administrated, leading to full renal recovery. In the absence of other therapeutic options, vedolizumab was re-administered along with transient corticosteroids; this treatment was well tolerated...

BACKGROUND: Patients with severe asthma have increased airway remodelling and elevated numbers of circulating fibrocytes with enhanced myofibroblastic differentiation capacity, despite being treated with high doses of corticosteroids, and long acting β2-adrenergic receptor (AR) agonists (LABAs). We determined the effect of β2-AR agonists, alone or in combination with corticosteroids, on fibrocyte function. METHODS: Non-adherent non-T cells from peripheral blood mononuclear cells isolated from healthy subjects and patients with non-severe or severe asthma were treated with the β2-AR agonist, salmeterol, in the presence or absence of the corticosteroid dexamethasone...

BACKGROUND: Previous literature has suggested that a short course of corticosteroids is similarly effective as an extended course for managing an acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD). However, there are limited data regarding the optimal corticosteroid regimen in critically ill patients and the dosing strategies remain highly variable in this population. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study evaluated patients with AECOPD admitted to the intensive care unit within a 2-year period...

RATIONALE: Corticosteroid therapy is commonly used among critically ill patients with the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), but its impact on outcomes is uncertain. Analyses of observational studies often do not account for patients' clinical condition at the time of corticosteroid therapy initiation. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the association of corticosteroid therapy on mortality and on MERS coronavirus RNA clearance in critically ill patients with MERS...
