How effective are Predonine tablets 5 mg from Japan (Millipred, prednisolone, corticosteroid)?
Prednisolone is a synthetic corticosteroid medication. These tablets provide anti-inflammatory action, anti-allergic action, immunosuppressive action and various metabolic actions. Prednisolone works by getting inside the cell, promoting synthesis of anti-inflammatory proteins and blocking the transcription of inflammatory genes (C. Stahn, M. Löwenberg et al. Molecular mechanisms of glucocorticoid action and selective glucocorticoid receptor agonists. Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology. 2007, September, 275 (1–2): 71–8). Predonine tablets are prescribed for the treatment of various diseases but they rather help to treat the symptoms and the consequences but not the reasons of the diseases. However, prednisolone is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, acknowledged as one of the safest and most effective medicines in the world.
