Characteristics of Demisone 0.5mg

Demisone is a steroid drug with anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties. It is also used to improve dermatological diseases such as atopic dermatitis and allergic diseases such as bronchial asthma. Currently, the active ingredient, dexamethasone, is approved in USA as a therapeutic agent for new coronavirus infections.

High anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects, effective in various immune system diseases
  • Widely used for allergies and immune system diseases
  • One of the most powerful steroids
  • It is equivalent to the new coronavirus (COVID-19) drug approved in USA


Improvement of allergic diseases, autoimmune diseases, arthritis, asthma, etc.

Demisone is a corticosteroid with immunomodulatory/suppressive and anti-inflammatory effects.

The immune system originally works to eliminate harmful substances and foreign substances that invade the body. However, sometimes the immune system malfunctions and attacks the body’s own normal tissues as foreign substances.

When this happens, immune attacks cause inflammation and tissue damage, resulting in various types of disorders. Typical examples are collagen diseases such as rheumatism, asthma, and abnormal thyroid function.

A definitive cure for these immune disorders has yet to be found, and treatment is done by suppressing the immune response with medication.

Demisone’s active ingredient, dexamethasone, is one of the synthetic adrenocortical hormones called corticosteroids that act in the same way as glucocorticoids. Glucocorticoids are naturally occurring hormones in the body that suppress the immune system and prevent excessive inflammatory reactions.

Dexamethasone is more potent and longer acting than glucocorticoids and is used for a variety of immune system disorders.

About Demisone 0.5mg

Demisone is a synthetic corticosteroid (steroid) agent. The active ingredient, dexamethasone, blocks the action of hormones called glucocorticoids produced in the adrenal cortex. It has anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects and is used to treat diseases caused by abnormal immune function.

There are many types of diseases that are caused by abnormalities in immune function.

Much is still unknown about the causes of immune system disorders, and there is no silver bullet. Corticosteroids such as Demisone also cannot cure the disease itself. However, corticosteroids are used for treatment because they are effective in relieving the symptoms of immune system diseases and improving life prognosis.

Prior to the 1950s, systemic lupus erythematosus, known as a typical collagen disease, had a 5-year survival rate of less than 30%. The annual survival rate is up to 95%. In addition to the survival rate, patients’ QOL has improved dramatically due to improvements in pain caused by inflammation.

New coronavirus (COVID-19) approved for treatment of critically ill patients

In May 2020, a dexamethasone preparation equivalent to Demisone was approved as a treatment for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in USA. However, it is applied as an immunomodulator, not as an antiviral drug.

The human body contains proteins called cytokines that are secreted in response to viruses and bacteria. Cytokines protect the body through three functions: gathering immune cells at sites invaded by viruses and bacteria, differentiating immune cells into cells suitable for attack by invading viruses and bacteria, and activating immune cells.

Cytokines, which are normally produced in the amount necessary to fight viruses, become uncontrollable under the influence of an infectious disease, resulting in a large number of cytokines that cause fatal damage to the body. runaway).

Cytokine storms cause acute respiratory distress syndrome and multiple organ failure. It is thought that this cytokine storm is also occurring in patients who are infected with the new coronavirus and become severe. This is because the new coronavirus increases the production of the inflammatory cytokine interloxin-6, and many severely ill people are reported to develop acute respiratory distress syndrome.

A study conducted in the United Kingdom on people infected with the new coronavirus announced that the administration of dexamethasone reduced the mortality rate of patients who required oxygen administration.

However, there was no improvement in mildly ill patients who did not require supplemental oxygen.

It is a powerful drug used for many immune system disorders

The active ingredient, dexamethasone, is known for its long duration of action among synthetic adrenocortical hormones. It is also characterized by a stronger anti-inflammatory effect than glucocorticoids, which are anti-inflammatory hormones that are naturally present in the body. It has been applied to a wide range of immune system diseases as it suppresses the inflammatory response regardless of the cause of inflammation.

It reduces the production of substances that cause inflammation and suppresses excessive inflammatory reactions.

Dexamethasone is a synthetic corticosteroid that mimics the actions of natural glucocorticoids. This medicine exhibits anti-inflammatory effects such as inhibiting the synthesis of substances that cause inflammation and preventing the migration of inflammatory cells to other sites.

When dexamethasone binds to cytoplasmic or nuclear receptors, anti-inflammatory proteins such as lipocortin-1 are synthesized and inhibit phospholipase A2. Inhibition of phospholipase A2 reduces the production of substances that cause inflammation, such as prostaglandins and thromboxanes.
