Betamethasone is a synthetic glucocorticoid. It has a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and immunosuppressive activity. The anti-inflammatory, immunosuppressive and anti-allergic properties of glucocorticoids are responsible for most of the therapeutic applications. The main aspects of these properties are as follows: reduction of the immunoactive cells near the inflammation focus; reduced vasodilation; stabilization of the lysosomal membranes; inhibition of phagocytosis; reduced production of prostaglandins and related substances
