Summary of Clinical Use
The approved drug can contain fluticasone propionate. This formulation is used to treat various inflammatory conditions including aleviation of inflammatory and pruritic symptoms of dermatoses and psoriasis (applied topically), for controlling symptoms of allergic and non-allergic rhinitis (used intranasally) and to treat asthma (inhalation and oral administration). Fluticasone furoate (in Flonase® SensimistTM Allergy Relief) is approved as an over-the-counter medication providing non-drowsy, 24-hour relief of both nose- and eye-related allergy symptoms.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
The antiinflammatory actions of corticosteroids are thought to involve inhibition of several pathways involved in resolution of inflammation, including inhibition of cytosolic phospholipase A2 (through activation of lipocortin-1 (annexin)) which controls the biosynthesis of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
