Summary of "Corticosteroids for Treating Pneumonia."

Pneumonia remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. There is both theoretical and laboratory evidence that corticosteroids may have beneficial effects in pneumonia through local pulmonary and systemic effects. The data for this evidence-based summary is derived from a Cochrane meta-analysis by Stern et al, which included 17 trials with 2264 adult and children admitted to the hospital with community-acquired pneumonia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A glucocorticoid given orally, parenterally, by local injection, by inhalation, or applied topically in the management of various disorders in which corticosteroids are indicated. Its lack of mineralocorticoid properties makes betamethasone particularly suitable for treating cerebral edema and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p724)

A group of corticosteroids carrying hydroxy groups, usually in the 11- or 17-positions. They comprise the bulk of the corticosteroids used systemically. As they are relatively insoluble in water, salts of various esterified forms are often used for injections or solutions.
