Summary of Clinical Use
Mometasone is used intranasally in the management of asthma, allergic rhinitis and nasal polyposis, and topically for allergic skin disorders. Prescribed formulations contain mometasone furoate (PubChem CID 441336).
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.
