Details

The precise mechanism of action of anti-inflammatory topical steroids is the treatment of steroid-responsive dermatose. Corticosteroids thought to act by the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, collectively called lipocortins. These proteins control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid is released from membrane phospholipids by phospholipase A2.Clobetasol bind to the glucocorticoid receptor, which enters the cell nucleus and modifies genetic transcription.
