Has a pronounced anti-inflammatory, antiallergic and desensitizing effect, has immunosuppressive activity. Slightly delay sodium and water in the body. These effects are associated with inhibition of the eosinophils release inflammatory mediators, induction of the formation of lipokortinov and reduce the number of fat cells, generating gialuronovu acid, reduces capillary permeability, stabilization of cell membranes (especially lysosomal) membranes and organelles. Immunosuppressive effect due to inhibition of the release of cytokines (interleukin 1, 2, gamma-interferon) from lymphocytes and macrophages. The main influence on the metabolism associated with protein catabolism, increased hepatic gluconeogenesis and decreased glucose utilization peripheral tissues.
