Budesonide is a glucocorticoid that is primarily used to treat irritable bowel disease(IBD). Budesonide is thought to have fewer harmful side-effects than other steroids because it acts locally in the gut rather than systemically like most other steroids. Budesonide is a potent, locally acting corticosteroid (strong glucocorticoid, weak mineralocorticoid). In humans, the enteric coated oral form is used to treat or to manage Crohn's Disease and the inhaled formulations are used to manage asthma and allergies. Because of its low systemic bioavailability and high first-pass hepatic metabolism, it is regarded as a "topical" corticosteroid at the site of delivery. In large-scale clinical trials in humans with mild to moderate Crohn's Disease, budesonide was well tolerated with fewer corticosteroid-related adverse effects than prednisolone. The presence of food in the GI tract will affect the speed but not the amount of the drug that is absorbed.
