Kenacort-A10 general information

What is Kenacort-A10 used for?

Kenacort-A10 is used to treat pain, swelling and stiffness in a range of inflammatory conditions of joints and tendons, by injecting directly into the painful area of the joint or tendon sheath.  These conditions include osteoarthritis (wear and tear of the joints); rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation and swelling of joints) and acute gouty arthritis (a form of arthritis caused by deposits of uric acid in the joints).  Other painful joint conditions that Kenacort-A10 is used to treat include synovitis and tenosynovitis (inflammation of the synovium or fluid filled sheath that line the ends of joints or that surrounds a tendon); bursitis (inflammation of the fluid-filled sac or bursa between tendon and skin or bone); epicondylitis (also known as tennis elbow due to overuse of the elbow tendon).  Kenacort-A10 injections are also used to treat severe inflammatory skin conditions by injecting under the skin.  These include various forms of dermatitis including lichen planus (chronic itchy rash), granuloma annulare, neurodermatitis (dermatitis causes by chronic itch and scratch cycle), psoriasis (a chronic autoimmune condition causing irritation of the skin with thick red scaly patches); discoid lupus erythematosus (a chronic condition causing sores and inflammation of the face and scalp); also for skin overgrowths such as thickened scar tissue or keloids.  Alopecia areata is thought to be an autoimmune disease where the body attacks the hair follicles leaving small bald patches.  Kenacort-A10 injections into the scalp can help reverse this condition. 

How does Kenacort-A10 work?

Kenacort-A10 contains triamcinalone a synthetic glucocorticoid corticosteroid, similar to the naturally occurring cortisol and its metabolite hydrocortisone, with potent anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-rheumatic and immunosuppressant properties.  Corticosteroids are hormones that are naturally produced by the adrenal glands and are involved in regulation of many functions including control of inflammatory and immune responses.  Triamcinalone in Kenacort-A10 inhibits the production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and leukotrienes, from inflammatory cells at specific sites such as within joint tissue or in skin.  This reduces the swelling, redness and pain associated with inflammation and helps suppress clinical symptoms of a wide range of disorders characterized by excessive inflammation.  These include inflammation in the joints caused by wear and tear in osteoarthritis or overuse as in tennis elbow; also autoimmune diseases, where the immune system is directed against self, as in rheumatoid arthritis or psoriasis; or skin irritation leading to dermatitis.  By injecting Kenacort-A10 locally directly into the site of inflammation it can start to work immediately to provide symptom relief within a few hours. 

What does Kenacort-A10 contain?

Kenacort-A10 ampoules contain an aqueous suspension of the active ingredient triamcinalone acetonide (10mg/mL) a synthetic corticosteroid that is used to treat pain caused by severe inflammation, by injecting into joints, synovium, tendon sheath or under the skin.  Kenacort-A10 suspension also contains sodium chloride, benzyl alcohol, carmellose sodium, polysorbate 80 and water.
