Metabolite Identification
Common Name6-beta-hydroxydexamethasone
Description6-beta-hydroxydexamethasone is a metabolite of dexamethasone. Dexamethasone is a potent synthetic member of the glucocorticoid class of steroid drugs. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant. When taken orally, it is 26.6 times more potent than the naturally occurring hormone cortisol and 6.6 times more potent than prednisone.
