Triamcinolone Acetonide

INFORMATION

Uses

Triamcinolone Acetonide is used in the treatment of severe allergic reaction, allergic disorders and oral lichen planus .

How it works

The antiinflammatory actions of corticosteroids are thought to involve lipocortins, phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins which, through inhibition of arachidonic acid, control the biosynthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. The immune system is suppressed by corticosteroids due to a decrease in the function of the lymphatic system, a reduction in immunoglobulin and complement concentrations, the precipitation of lymphocytopenia, and interference with antigen-antibody binding.
