Cortisone ELISA kits are assays designed to detect the synthetic corticosteroid hormone, cortisone. This 21-carbon steroid hormone can suppress the immune system, thereby reducing inflammation and swelling. It is used as short-term pain relief, for treatment of autoimmune disorders, and for immune suppression after an organ transplant. Cortisone does not vary among species as it is synthetic.
