Characteristics

Dexamethasone is a potent synthetic glucocorticoid with low mineralocorticoid activity. Dexamethasone has ten to twenty times the anti-inflammatory activity of prednisolone at the equivalent molar dose. Corticosteroids can decrease the immune response. Indeed, they inhibit capillary dilatation, leukocyte migration and phagocytosis. Glucocorticoids have an effect on metabolism by increasing gluconeogenesis. Dexamethasone induces parturition in ruminants if the foetus is alive.
