Betamethasone is a corticosteroid hormone in a drug class known as glucocorticoids. It is used in many species commonly to reduce and calm inflammation, itching, and allergies. The drug works by inhibiting the body's natural immune system responses and easing swelling and some allergic reactions. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. It is very potent and long-acting; about 25-40 times more potent than hydrocortisone. In veterinary medicine, betamethasone is administered to a range of species to treat inflammatory conditions, shock and circulatory collapse, acetonaemia, and to induce parturition in cattle.
This Betamethasone Rapid Test Kit is based on lateral flow immunoassay to detect dexamethasone in milk, egg and meat.
