Each DISCORT-6 tablet contains deflazacort 6mg.
Deflazacort is a powerful anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive agent. Deflazacort belongs to the class of corticosteroids. This drug works as a corticosteroid hormone receptor agonist, which suppresses and soothes the symptoms of inflammation.
Deflazacort is a derivative of prednisolone and its potency is around 70-90% that of the latter. Deflazacort is rapidly absorbed and converted to its active form, 21-desacetyldeflazacort, which then exhibits the anti-inflammatory properties by acting on the glucocorticoid receptors. This drug has no effect on the blood glucose levels and is observed to be safe and effective.
