Therefore, the esters provide more sustained local effects than the active steroids (Fig. 13). The acetal structure in triamcinolone acetonide (Fig. 13) is metabolically stable and, furthermore, triamcinolone acetonide has a short half life elimination. This makes the depot of triamcinolone hexacetonide (Fig. 13) a useful corticosteroid for local use because of the subsequent relatively low systemic exposure of the active steroid. The ester steroids have inherent slow solubilities in aqueous environments.
