26 SIDE EFFECTS OF TOPICAL AND ORAL GLUCOCORTICOIDS Under physiological conditions bones undergo a permanent remodelling process that balances bone resorption and bone formation. GCs directly affect bone metabolism by several mechanisms. Glucocorticoids can alter the regulation of bone cells (osteoblasts, osteoclasts, osteocytes), induce apoptosis in osteoblasts, affect the regulation of calcium flux and decrease gonadal steroid production (oestrogens and androgens). The negative regulatory effect of GCs on bone formation is mainly due to inhibition of proliferation and possibly also differentiation of osteoblasts.

Surgery), the potential risk for adrenal insufficiency has to be considered. Any symptom suspicious for adrenal insufficiency has to be followed up. In conclusion, current inhaled GCs are highly effective and, when appropriately used, have a low risk of severe adverse effects. g. on-site activation) as well as by improving the pharmacological profile, resulting in a superior therapeutic index.
