suppressed corticotropin-releasing hormone stimulation test for diagnosis of mild hypercortisolism.
, however, does nothing to prevent or treat the CAH.
We found that dexamethasone
increased Ser307 phosphorylation of insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1) and reduced phosphorylation of AMPK and Akt.
does not suppress cortisol and ACTH levels in critically ill patients to the extent found in controls (5,6).
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- New study showed that Lenalidomide plus low-dose dexamethasone
is associated with better short-term overall survival and with lower toxicity than lenalidomide plus high-dose dexamethasone
in patients with newly diagnosed myeloma.
We have known that both tadalafil and dexamethasone
are good for preventing high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) and dex for treating symptoms of acute mountain sickness (AMS)," said lead authors Dr Manuel Fischler, of the University Hospital in Zurich, Switzerland, and Hans-Peter Brunner-La Rocca, of the University Hospital in Basel, Switzerland.
Effects of quercetin (10 mg/mL, inhalation for 2 min) compared with cromolyn sodium, salbutamol, and dexamethasone
We reviewed the charts of 20 patients who had presented with a chief complaint of aural fullness, stuffiness, or pressure and who underwent perfusion of the inner ear for 1 month with dexamethasone
4 or 10mg/ ml.
Preliminary results from a large, randomized clinical trial for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma, a cancer typically found in bone marrow, has shown that the use of a low dose of the steroid dexamethasone
(Decadron A[R]), in combination with lenalidomide (Revlimid A[R]) is associated with improved survival when compared to a treatment regimen with lenalidomide and a higher, standard dose of dexamethasone
MIAMI BEACH -- Prenatal dexamethasone
is superior to betamethasone in its reduction of two major neonatal morbidity and mortality outcomes--intraventricular hemorrhage and periventricular leukomalacia--according to results of a randomized, double-blind study presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine.
(Decadron) is a corticosteroid, which reduces brain swelling and also improves lung function.
Practical implications on dosing, tapering, and side effects of dexamethasone
are discussed as well.
