    We examined the effects of high-dose methylprednisolone (MP) on the pharmacokinetics of cyclosporin (CyA) in rats. To emulate the clinical protocol of MP pulse therapy, methylprednisolone sodium succinate (MPS) was intravenously administered as repeated doses (66.3 mg/kg/d) for 3 days. The total clearance of CyA was significantly decreased by..
