Engl. J. Med. Short-term and long-term survival in patients with alcoholic hepatitis treated with oxandrolone and prednisolone. 1464-70 A cooperative study was conducted to determine the efficacy of 30 days of treatment with either a glucocorticosteroid (prednisolone (...) ) or an anabolic steroid (oxandrolone) in moderate or severe alcoholic hepatitis. One hundred thirty-two patients with moderate disease and 131 with severe disease were randomly assigned to one of three treatments: prednisolone, oxandrolone, or placebo. During the 30 days, mortality in the groups receiving steroid therapy was not significantly different from mortality in the placebo group. Thirteen per cent of the moderately ill patients and 29 per cent of the severely ill patients died. Although neither

Most of the morbidity in the early months after transplantation. Most of the attributed to steroids, which are normally give in high doses. The only (...) justification for giving high doses is a historical one. For this reason a randomised controlled trial was carried out to compare the efficacy of high dose (39 patients) and low dose (33 patients) oral prednisolone, both in combination with azathioprine, in patients given cadaveric renal allografts. Patients were followed up for at least two years after the transplantation. Patient and graft survival were identical in the two groups and the morbidity associated with steroids was impressively lower

83. Deleterious effect of prednisolone in HBsAg-positive chronic active hepatitis.

Deleterious effect of prednisolone in HBsAg-positive chronic active hepatitis. 7005678 1981 03 17 1981 03 17 2013 11 21 0028-4793 304 7 1981 Feb 12 The New England journal of medicine N. Engl. J. Med. Deleterious effect of prednisolone in HBsAg-positive chronic active hepatitis. 380-6 To study the efficacy of corticosteroids in chronic active hepatitis (CAH) positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), we pair-randomized 51 patients to receive either 15 to 20 mg of prednisolone per day (...) or a placebo. After initial remission, the maintenance dosage of prednisolone was 10 mg per day, and the patients were prospectively followed for up to 3 1/2 years. Prednisolone decreased serum bilirubin (P < 0.05) and globulin (P < 0.01) at three months; it delayed other biochemical remission occurring after the second month of medication (P < 0.001); it hastened biochemical relapse (P < 0.0001); and it increased the frequency of complications (P < 0.0001) and the death rate (P < 0.01).

Patients were graded on a six-point scale by one of two neurologists who had no knowledge of the treatment schedule. Reassessment at one, three, and twelve months consistently showed greater improvement in the control than the prednisolone group but the only statistically significant result was in the improvement at three months among patients entered to the trial within a week of onset of illness. The 6 control patients had improved by 2.5 +/- 0.43 grades by three months from entry

For this reason (...) , patients with severe viral hepatitis were randomly assigned to methyl-prednisolone or placebo treatment groups. The two groups were comparable in clinical findings, laboratory results and the presence of bridging necrosis on liver biopsy. Seven of the 14 patients assigned to methyl-prednisolone and two of the 15 assigned to placebo died during the 16-week study period. Although the apparent excess mortality in the steroid-treated patients is not quite statistically significant (P = 0.08), the trend
