Cortisone (Steroid) Information Website

13 Jan 2014

Corticosteroids (steroids) are widely prescribed worldwide.

It is estimated that, at any point of time, about 1 per cent of the general population is receiving oral corticosteroids.

A new, in depth, website is now available with the aims of helping patients and their families by publishing practical information about corticosteroids and corticosteroid therapies. However, this website is not intended to replace the advice of a doctor.

The website, in English, was entirely created by the Department of Internal Medicine of Saint-Antoine hospital (Paris, France), it received the HONcode label in 2012 and it has not received any financial industrial support. You can access the site at: Cortisone-Info
