Triamcinolone acetonide Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Appearance and properties

Triamcinolone acetonide, its acetate form appears to be white or white-like crystalline powder. The drug is odorless, with bitter taste. It is hardly soluble in water, slightly soluble in ethanol, soluble in chloroform, and slightly soluble in acetone.

Glucocorticoid drugs

Triamcinolone acetonide is a kind of long-term glucocorticoid drugs which is now widely used in clinical Dermatology of China. It belongs to adrenocorticotropic hormone drugs. It is the derivative of Triamcinolone, and with the same function as Triamcinolone. Triamcinolone acetonide functions in anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-itching and shrinking capillaries. What’s more, besides its weak water-sodium retention, the effect of Triamcinolone acetonide for anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic is much stronger and more durable than hydrocortisone (10 to 30 folds), and prednisone. It can also treat bronchial asthma by aerosol inhalation with very strong and durable effect. Triamcinolone acetonide has better efficacy on local treatment compared with triamcinolone. It is Oral absorbed easily. Taking orally 5mg of the drug yields a bioavailability of about 23%. Its plasma concentration reaches peak (105 ng/mL) within one hour with the half-life is being 2 hours; It has a slow intramuscular absorption rate which takes effect within hours, and gives maximal effect within 1 to 2 days. The effect can be maintained for 2~3 weeks; the absorption rate of intradermal and intra-articular injection of the drug is low, but has a long-lasting effect; generally the efficacy can be maintained for more than 1-2 week per injection. This product has a low binding rate with plasma albumin protein, and is metabolized into non-active product in the liver, kidneys and tissues which is then further excreted by the kidneys. It also has a long-lasting effect upon local injection. Moreover, topical ointments can also produce a good effect. Clinically triamcinolone acetonide is used for treatment of various skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, neurodermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, psoriasis, lichen planus and skin pruritus, as well as bronchial asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, acute sprains, chronic ache in back and legs, frozen shoulder, tenosynovitis, ophthalmic inflammation, oral mucosal congestion, erosion, ulcers, granulomatous cheilitis, and oral mucosa chronic infectious diseases, Furthermore, it can also be used for local injection treatment in keloid, cystic acne, discoid lupus erythematosus, alopecia areata and other small area of damages. Triamcinolone acetonide nasal spray can be used for the prevention and treatment of perennial, seasonal allergic rhinitis, and vasomotor rhinitis. Intra-articular injection of this drug can eliminate inflammation and pain, swelling or can alleviate, pain, stiffness and swelling feeling.

It is adrenal cortex hormones drugs used for treating diseases such as neurodermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, joint pain, and asthma.


Toxic Substances.

Toxicity grading

Highly toxic.

Acute toxicity

Subcutaneous-rat LD50: 13.1 mg/kg; intraperitoneal-Mouse LD50: 105 mg/kg.

Flammability hazard characteristics

Combustible; combustion produces toxic fumes of fluoride.

Storage Characteristics

Treasury: ventilation, low-temperature and dry; store separately from food raw materials.

Extinguishing agent

Dry powder, foam, sand, carbon dioxide, water spray.

Chemical Properties

White Solid


A glucocorticoid, antiasthmatic (inhalant); antiallergic (nasal).




ChEBI: A synthetic glucocorticoid that is the 16,17-acetonide of triamcinolone. Used to treat various skin infections.

General Description

The three main metabolitesof triamcinolone acetonide (Azmacort, Nasacort) are 6β-hydroxytriamcinolone acetonide, 21-carboxytriamcinoloneacetonide, and 6β-hydroxy-21-carboxytriamcinolone acetonide.All are much less active than the parent compound.The 6β-hydroxyl group and the 21-carboxy group are bothstructural features that greatly reduce GC action. The increasedwater solubility of these metabolites also facilitatesmore rapid excretion.

General Description

Triamcinolone acetonide is approximately 8 times morepotent than prednisone in animal inflammation models.Topically applied triamcinolone acetonide is a potent antiinflammatoryagent, about 10 times more sothan triamcinolone. The plasma half-life is approximately 90minutes, although the plasma half-life and biological halflivesfor GCs do not correlate well. The hexacetonide isslowly converted to the acetonide in vivo and is given onlyby intra-articular injection. Only triamcinolone and the diacetateare given orally. The acetonide and diacetate may begiven by intra-articular or intrasynovial injection. In addition,the acetonide may be given by intrabursal or, sometimes,IM or subcutaneous injection. A single IM dose of thediacetate or acetonide may last up to 3 or 4 weeks. Plasmalevels with IM doses of the acetonide are significantly higherthan with triamcinolone itself. The acetonide is also used totreat asthma and allergic rhinitis.

Safety Profile

Poison by subcutaneous and intraperitoneal routes. An experimental teratogen. Other experimental reproductive effects. Human mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and toxic fumes of F-.

Veterinary Drugs and Treatments

The systemic veterinary labeled product (Vetalog? Injection) is labeled as “indicated for the treatment of inflammation and related disorders in dogs, cats, and horses. It is also indicated for use in dogs and cats for the management and treatment of acute arthritis, allergic and dermatologic disorders.”
Glucocorticoids have been used in an attempt to treat practically every malady that afflicts man or animal, but there are three broad uses and dosage ranges for use of these agents. 1) Replacement of glucocorticoid activity in patients with adrenal insufficiency, 2) as an antiinflammatory agent, and 3) as an immunosuppressive. Among some of the uses for glucocorticoids include treatment of: endocrine conditions (e.g., adrenal insufficiency), rheumatic diseases (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis), collagen diseases (e.g., systemic lupus), allergic states, respiratory diseases (e.g., asthma), dermatologic diseases (e.g., pemphigus, allergic dermatoses), hematologic disorders (e.g., thrombocytopenias, autoimmune hemolytic anemias), neoplasias, nervous system disorders (increased CSF pressure), GI diseases (e.g., ulcerative colitis exacerbations), and renal diseases (e.g., nephrotic syndrome). Some glucocorticoids are used topically in the eye and skin for various conditions or are injected intra-articularly or intra-lesionally. The above listing is certainly not complete.
