However, if only prednisone
is available, it is acceptable.
Our study sample comprised of 43 (mean age 57.7 [+ or -] 13.1 years, 86% female) RA patients with prednisone
treatment, 22 (mean age 59.9 [+ or -] 10.8 years, 73% female) prednisone
naive patients, and 195 (mean age 51.5 [+ or -] 10.9 years, 67% female) healthy subjects (HS).
The two patients in this report demonstrated that potassium and prednisone
supplementation are efficacious in controlling hypokalemia associated with abiraterone.
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 0.001).
Idiopathic facial nerve paralysis: a randomized double blind controlled study of placebo versus prednisone
. Laryngoscope 1993; 103: 1326-33.
Animals were randomly assigned to control group, in which animals received only vehicle (0.9% NaCl) (n = 7), and treated group, in which animals received 0.625 mg/kg/day of prednisone
(n = 7) or 2.5 mg/kg/day of prednisone
(n = 7).

plus cabazitaxel or mitoxantrone for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer progressing after docetaxel treatment: A randomized, open-label trial.
Patients were randomized to receive either prednisone
50 mg/d or placebo for 7 days.
(28) Eligible patients had morning stiffness of at least 45 minutes duration and were receiving stable low-dose glucocorticoid therapy for greater than or equal to 3 months (2.5 mg to 10 mg prednisone
equivalent) and stable DMARD therapy for greater than or equal to 1 month with no biologic therapy in the prior 4 months.
group demonstrated significant reduction in the ODI at 3 weeks and 12 months, compared with placebo.
