How it helps in the treatment?

Budesonide is a locally acting corticosteroid but more effective in contrast to other subclasses. It is an agonist of glucocorticosteroid receptor. It controls the pace of protein synthesis, suppresses the migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and fibroblasts, controls inflammation via reverse capillary permeability and has weak mineralocorticoid action.
