/ prednisolone has already been approved by the European Commission for the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) in adult men who are asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic after failure of ADT in whom chemotherapy is not yet clinically indicated and in adult men whose disease has progressed on or after a docetaxel-based chemotherapy regimen.
If the steroid-sparing agents don't get patients down to 10 mg/day prednisone
or below, then consider using rituximab and intravenous IgG.
The CCL11 concentration was decreased in the prednisone
treated group compared with a disease control group (P 0.

plus cabazitaxel or mitoxantrone for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer progressing after docetaxel treatment: A randomized, open-label trial.
Researchers also explored whether the rates of complications from pneumonia or corticosteroid use differed between the prednisone
and placebo groups.
mean dosage remained the same throughout the study and did not differ between any of the comparison groups, before or after the switch (Table 1).
5 in the first trimester required neither TNF inhibitors nor prednisone
during their pregnancy, and they had no abnormal outcomes.
However, since the patient had been on the steroid medication for many years and her rheumatologist wanted to taper her down on the dosage of prednisone
due to the negative health impacts that it was causing such as hypertension and diabetes, all of her physicians wanted her to be off prednisone

In these five patients the dose of prednisone
