Investigation of a case of prednisolone malabsorption.
  1. T. G. Mant


    Malabsorption of prednisolone administered as enteric coated tablets was suspected following therapeutic failure in an asthmatic. This was investigated by cortisol estimation and a Synacthen test and substantiated by the demonstration of abnormally low absorption of prednisolone from these tablets which nevertheless were normally absorbed by a volunteer. The absorption of prednisolone from conventional tablets in this patient was normal.
