In light of the important clinical implications for treatment of a wide range of diseases with glucocorticoids and the potential serious side effects of depression and suicidality, it is timely that this subject be re-visited due to new research. The topics addressed will include a survey of clinical features of glucocorticoid treatment and molecular and genetic factors in glucocorticoid resistance and sensitivity. The topics will be of relevance to many medical specialties in which glucocorticoid therapy is widely used, including but not limited to, rheumatology, orthopedics, pain management, allergy/immunology and asthma.
