Calcort is a medication containing the active substance deflazacort, a synthetic glucocorticoid.

Calcort is used as an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive agent and is used to treat various conditions such as asthma, arthritis, and allergies.

Calcort reduces inflammation and suppresses the immune system, thereby reducing symptoms associated with certain conditions.

Note that Calcort is a steroid medication and should be used only under the guidance of a healthcare provider.
