  • Betamethasone is in a class of drugs called steroids.
  • Betamethasone prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.
  • The plant Agave contains saponin having immense pharmacological importance
  • Among the various sapogenins of Agave sisalana, hecogenin is of prime importance as a raw material in the synthesis of cortical hormones (corticoids) as cortisone, cortisol, prednisolone, prednisone, dexamethasone, betamethasone, triamcinolone and others
  • Hecogenin is a steroidal saponine that is obtained from the plant Agave sisalana. The saponines are precursor of drugs as anti-inflammatory, contraceptive and antibiotics. Because its structure has molecules completely saturated,
    it is utilized to synthesize corticosteroids as well as betamethasone, prednisone, prednisolone and dexamethasone
  • Betamethasone has 30 times more powerful action compared with cortisol, a physiological hormone, and itís indicated in diseases as septic shock, cerebral edema, gout and rheumatoid arthritis
  • It is good business opportunity - Extraction of Hecogenin from sisal waste and synthesis of Betamethasone from Hecogenin
  • Betnesol (betamethasone) is one of the top products of Indian Pharmacetical product
