List of Corticosteroids
Steroid ring system.

This is a list of corticosteroids (glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids) or derivatives of cortisol (hydrocortisone). Most esters of these corticosteroids are not included in this list; for esters, see here instead.

The most common structural modifications in synthetic corticosteroids include 1(2)-dehydrogenation, 6?-, 9?-, 16?-, and 16?-substitution (with a halogen or methyl group), 16?,17?-acetonidation, and 17?- and 21-esterification.

Natural

Cortisol (hydrocortisone), the major endogenous glucocorticoid.

Note that the glucocorticoid activity of progesterone and 17?-hydroxyprogesterone is very weak (>100-fold less than that of cortisol).[1]

The above list includes precursors and intermediates in corticosteroid biosynthesis.

Synthetic

Progesterone-type

  • Flugestone (flurogestone) = 9?-fluoro-11?,17?-dihydroxypregn-4-ene-3,20-dione

  • Prebediolone acetate (21-acetoxypregnenolone) = 3?,21-dihydroxypregn-5-en-20-one 21-acetate

In addition to the above, various progesterone derivative progestins such as chlormadinone acetate, cyproterone acetate, medrogestone, medroxyprogesterone acetate, megestrol acetate, and segesterone acetate possess weak glucocorticoid activity which can manifest clinically at high dosages.
