During a protracted systemic circulation relatively more of the steroid can be used for a prolonged receptor binding, while during a high plasma peak the binding capacity of peripheral receptors is overloaded, delivering more steroid to rapid metabolism and excretion. For reducing systemic activity by a retarded uptake, the systemic absorption rate must be so low that the resulting plasma steroid level is below the threshold for triggering GC-activity. This is further discussed in Chapter 23. VII.
A dose-response relationship was found in the range of 100 –1600 mg/day (29,30), and the efﬁcacy was exerted locally as oral treatment giving a similar plasma level of BUD mediated just marginal efﬁcacy (29,34). m. cortisol was seen ﬁrst at or above 1600 mg/day. A surprisingly rapid onset (improved PEF within a few hours) was detected in the acute testing of chronic mild asthmatics (29). Other novel ﬁndings were the full blunting of the immediate allergic reaction, when Pulmicort was inhaled for one month (31), and that Pulmicort reached the same antiasthmatic efﬁcacy as high dose oral steroids (33).
