Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs versus corticosteroids for controlling inflammation after uncomplicated cataract surgery. Cataract is a leading cause of blindness worldwide. Cataract surgery is commonly performed but can result in postoperative inflammation of the eye. Inadequately controlled inflammation increases the risk of complications. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and corticosteroids are used to prevent and reduce inflammation following cataract surgery (...) , but these two drug classes work by different mechanisms. Corticosteroids are effective, but NSAIDs may provide an additional benefit to reduce inflammation when given in combination with corticosteroids. A comparison of NSAIDs to corticosteroids alone or combination therapy with these two anti-inflammatory agents will help to determine the role of NSAIDs in controlling inflammation after routine cataract surgery.To evaluate the comparative effectiveness of topical NSAIDs (alone or in combination
Corticosteroids for adult patients with advanced cancer who have nausea and vomiting (not related to chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or surgery). Nausea is a common symptom in advanced cancer, with a prevalence of up to 70%. While nausea and vomiting can be related to cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or surgery, a significant number of people with advanced cancer also suffer from nausea unrelated to such therapies. Nausea and vomiting may also cause psychological distress (...) , and have a negative impact on the quality of life of cancer patients; similarly to pain, nausea is often under-treated. The exact mechanism of action of corticosteroids on nausea is unclear, however, they are used to manage a number of cancer-specific complications, including spinal cord compression, raised intracranial pressure, and lymphangitis carcinomatosis. They are also commonly used in palliative care for a wide variety of non-specific indications, such as pain, nausea, anorexia, fatigue
Corticosteroid-resistant inflammatory signalling in Pseudomonas-infected bronchial cells Decreasing the inflammatory response that leads to tissue damage during cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease has been a long-standing goal of CF therapy. While corticosteroids are widely used anti-inflammatory drugs, their efficacy in CF lung disease remains debated. The complex interaction between the colonising bacteria and the host environment may impact corticosteroid responsiveness. In this study, sputum (...) samples from adult CF patients were collected at baseline and during pulmonary exacerbation episodes. Lung function measurements and sputum microbiological analyses were performed. In parallel, the inflammatory response and corticosteroid sensitivity of airway epithelial cells to Pseudomonas-derived exoproducts was investigated. We report that adult CF patients colonised with mucoid Pseudomonas aeruginosa have higher levels of baseline inflammation, more frequent exacerbations and worse lung function
Injected corticosteroids for treating plantar heel pain in adults. Plantar heel pain, commonly resulting from plantar fasciitis, often results in significant morbidity. Treatment options include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), orthoses, physical therapy, physical agents (e.g. extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), laser) and invasive procedures including steroid injections.To assess the effects (benefits and harms) of injected corticosteroids for treating plantar heel pain (...) in adults.We searched the Cochrane Bone, Joint and Muscle Trauma Group Specialised Register, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (the Cochrane Library), MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, clinical trials registries and conference proceedings. Latest search: 27 March 2017.Randomised and quasi-randomised trials of corticosteroid injections in the treatment of plantar heel pain in adults were eligible for inclusion.At least two review authors independently selected studies, assessed risk of bias
Stress-Dose Corticosteroid Versus Placebo in Neonatal Cardiac Operations: A Randomized Controlled Trial Corticosteroids can improve the hemodynamic status of neonates with postoperative low cardiac output syndrome after cardiac operations. This study compared a prophylactically administered stress-dose corticosteroid (SDC) regimen against placebo on inflammation, adrenocortical function, and hemodynamic outcome.Forty neonates undergoing elective open heart operations were randomized into two
Acute paraparesis and sensory loss following intravenous corticosteroid administration in a case of longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis caused by spinal dural arteriovenous fistula: case report and review of literature The underlying causes of longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis (LETM) are broad and include inflammatory processes, compression and spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (SDAVF). Presenting symptoms of SDAVF are nonspecific and often go misdiagnosed. Acute clinical
Immunomodulatory treatment other than corticosteroids, immunoglobulin and plasma exchange for chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy. Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) is a disease that causes progressive or relapsing and remitting weakness and numbness. It is probably caused by an autoimmune process. Immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory drugs would be expected to be beneficial. This review was first published in 2003 and has been updated most (...) recently in 2016.To assess the effects of immunomodulatory and immunosuppressive agents other than corticosteroids, immunoglobulin, and plasma exchange in CIDP.On 24 May 2016, we searched the Cochrane Neuromuscular Specialised Register, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL; 2016, Issue 4) in the Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, and LILACS for completed trials, and clinical trial registers for ongoing trials. We contacted the authors of the trials identified and other
Long-term management of moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis with dupilumab and concomitant topical corticosteroids (LIBERTY AD CHRONOS): a 1-year, randomised, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, phase 3 trial. Dupilumab (an anti-interleukin-4-receptor-α monoclonal antibody) blocks signalling of interleukin 4 and interleukin 13, type 2/Th2 cytokines implicated in numerous allergic diseases ranging from asthma to atopic dermatitis. Previous 16-week monotherapy studies showed that dupilumab (...) substantially improved signs and symptoms of moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis with acceptable safety, validating the crucial role of interleukin 4 and interleukin 13 in atopic dermatitis pathogenesis. We aimed to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of dupilumab with medium-potency topical corticosteroids versus placebo with topical corticosteroids in adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis.In this 1-year, randomised, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, phase 3 study (LIBERTY AD CHRONOS
Overcoming barriers to intranasal corticosteroid use in patients with uncontrolled allergic rhinitis Patients suffering from allergic rhinitis often attempt to self-manage their symptoms and may seek advice from pharmacists about nonprescription product choices. Several drug classes, both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC), are available, including intranasal corticosteroids (INCSs); oral, intranasal, and ocular antihistamines; leukotriene antagonists; and topical and systemic
Cardiovascular outcomes with an inhaled beta2-agonist/corticosteroid in patients with COPD at high cardiovascular risk Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) often coexist. We assessed the effect of inhaled COPD treatments on CVD outcomes and safety in patients with COPD and at heightened CVD risk.The SUMMIT (Study to Understand Mortality and MorbidITy) was a multicentre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, event-driven trial in 16 485 patients (...) with moderate COPD who had or were at high risk of CVD. Here, we assessed the prespecified secondary endpoint of time to first on-treatment composite CVD event (CVD death, myocardial infarction, stroke, unstable angina or transient ischaemic attack (TIA)) by Cox regression and by clinician-reported CVD adverse events across the four groups: once-daily inhaled placebo (n=4111), long-acting beta2-agonist (vilanterol (VI) 25 µg; n=4118), corticosteroid (fluticasone furoate (FF) 100 µg; n=4135) and combination
Short term use of oral corticosteroids and related harms among adults in the United States: population based cohort study. Objective To determine the frequency of prescriptions for short term use of oral corticosteroids, and adverse events (sepsis, venous thromboembolism, fractures) associated with their use.Design Retrospective cohort study and self controlled case series.Setting Nationwide dataset of private insurance claims.Participants Adults aged 18 to 64 years who were continuously (...) enrolled from 2012 to 2014.Main outcome measures Rates of short term use of oral corticosteroids defined as less than 30 days duration. Incidence rates of adverse events in corticosteroid users and non-users. Incidence rate ratios for adverse events within 30 day and 31-90 day risk periods after drug initiation.Results Of 1 548 945 adults, 327 452 (21.1%) received at least one outpatient prescription for short term use of oral corticosteroids over the three year period. Use was more frequent among
Exposure to any antenatal corticosteroids and outcomes in preterm infants by gestational age: prospective cohort study. Objective To determine whether exposure to any antenatal corticosteroids is associated with a lower rate of death at each gestational age at which administration is currently recommended.Design Prospective cohort study.Settings 300 participating neonatal intensive care units of the Pediatrix Medical Group in the United States.Participants 117 941 infants 23 0/7 to 34 6/7 weeks (...) ' gestational age born between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2013.Exposure Any antenatal corticosteroids.Main outcomes measures Death or major hospital morbidities analyzed by gestational age and exposure to antenatal corticosteroids with models adjusted for birth weight, sex, mode of delivery, and multiple births.Results Infants exposed to antenatal corticosteroids (n=81 832) had a significantly lower rate of death before discharge at each gestation 29 weeks or less, 31 weeks, and 33-34 weeks compared
Antenatal corticosteroids for accelerating fetal lung maturation for women at risk of preterm birth. Respiratory morbidity including respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a serious complication of preterm birth and the primary cause of early neonatal mortality and disability. While researching the effects of the steroid dexamethasone on premature parturition in fetal sheep in 1969, Liggins found that there was some inflation of the lungs of lambs born at gestations at which the lungs would (...) be expected to be airless. Liggins and Howie published the first randomised controlled trial in humans in 1972 and many others followed.To assess the effects of administering a course of corticosteroids to the mother prior to anticipated preterm birth on fetal and neonatal morbidity and mortality, maternal mortality and morbidity, and on the child in later life.We searched Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth's Trials Register (17 February 2016) and reference lists of retrieved studies.We considered all
Addition of anti-leukotriene agents to inhaled corticosteroids for adults and adolescents with persistent asthma. Asthma management guidelines recommend low-dose inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) as first-line therapy for adults and adolescents with persistent asthma. The addition of anti-leukotriene agents to ICS offers a therapeutic option in cases of suboptimal control with daily ICS.To assess the efficacy and safety of anti-leukotriene agents added to ICS compared with the same dose (...) for at least four weeks.We used standard methods expected by Cochrane. The primary outcome was the number of participants with exacerbations requiring oral corticosteroids (except when both groups tapered the dose of ICS, in which case the primary outcome was the % reduction in ICS dose from baseline with maintained asthma control). Secondary outcomes included markers of exacerbation, lung function, asthma control, quality of life, withdrawals and adverse events.We included in the review 37 studies
Corticosteroids for tuberculous pleurisy. Corticosteroids used in addition to antituberculous therapy have been reported to benefit people with tuberculous pleurisy. However, research findings are inconsistent and raise doubt as to whether such treatment is worthwhile. There is also concern regarding the potential adverse effects of corticosteroids, especially in HIV-positive people.To evaluate the effects of adding corticosteroids to drug regimens for tuberculous pleural effusion.In April 2016 (...) , we searched the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group Specialized Register, CENTRAL (the Cochrane Library), MEDLINE, Embase, LILACS, Current Controlled Trials, and the reference lists of articles identified by the literature search.Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and quasi-RCTs that compared any corticosteroid with no treatment, placebo, or other active treatment (both groups should have received the same antituberculous drug regimen) in people diagnosed with tuberculous pleurisy.Two review
Differential Effects of Estrogen on Corticosteroid-Binding Globulin Forms Suggests Reduced Cleavage in Pregnancy Corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG) is secreted as high-affinity CBG (haCBG), which may be cleaved by tissue proteases to low-affinity CBG (laCBG), releasing free cortisol. Pregnancy and the estrogen-based combined oral contraceptive pill (COCP) increase CBG concentrations twofold to threefold. The relative effects of these two hyperestrogenic states on the CBG affinity forms
Long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) plus long-acting beta-agonist (LABA) versus LABA plus inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) for stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Three classes of inhaler medications are used to manage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): long-acting beta-agonists (LABA), long-acting muscarinic antagonists (LAMA), and inhaled corticosteroids (ICS). When two classes of medications are required, LAMA plus LABA (LAMA+LABA) and LABA plus ICS (LABA+ICS
Severe Adverse Effects Associated With Corticosteroid Treatment in Patients With IgA Nephropathy Few data are available on the risk of SAEs in corticosteroid users in IgAN populations. We describe the prevalence and risk factors of corticosteroid-related SAEs in a Chinese cohort.A total of 1034 IgAN patients were followed up in our renal center from 2003 to 2014. Prevalence of corticosteroid use and corticosteroid-related SAEs were noted. Logistic regression was used to search for risk factors (...) of SAEs in corticosteroid users.Of the 369 patients with steroids therapy, 46 patients (12.5%) with 58 events suffered SAEs, whereas only 18 patients (2.7%) without corticosteroids suffered SAEs (OR: 5.45; 95% CI: 3.07-9.68; P < 0.001). SAEs included diabetes mellitus (n = 19, 5.1%), severe or fatal infection (n = 18, 4.9%), osteonecrosis of the femoral head or bone fracture (n = 6, 1.6%), cardiocerebral vascular disease (n = 4, 1.1%), cataract (n = 3, 0.8%), and gastrointestinal hemorrhage (n = 1
