How effective are Medrol tablets 4 mg from Japan for inflammation and allergy (methylprednisolone, glucocorticoid, steroid hormone therapy)?
Medrol tablets contain methylprednisolone, a synthetic glucocorticoid having a similar action to adrenocortical hormone produced within the body. It has a higher affinity to glucocorticoid receptors than other exogenous glucocorticoids which tend to affect the mineralocorticoid receptors more. Medrol tablets regulate the number and function of leukocytes, cytokines and chemokines and, by this and by dampening signal transduction downstream of pattern recognition receptors, effectively suppress inflammatory and immune responses (D. W. Cain, J. A. Cidlowski. "Immune regulation by glucocorticoids". Nature Reviews. Immunology. 2017, April, 17 (4): 233–247).
