Abstract

Molecular mechanisms of actions, pharmacokinetics and anti-inflammatory potency of inhaled glucocorticosteroids (ICS) are described. Differences in clinical effectiveness of ICS in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) therapy and up-to-date recommendations for treatment with ICS in asthma and COPD patients are discussed. Finally there are presented data on safety of long-term treatment with ICS, specially in asthmatic children.
