ABSTRACT
The article looks at the new generation of corticosteroids as of September 2005. Selective glucocorticoid receptor agonists block inflammatory pathways without activating genes. Nitrosteroids are designed to release a constant low level of inflammation-fighting nitric oxide. Early studies on long-circulating liposomal glucocorticoids showed that these drugs reduced cartilage damage.
