Mometasone Furoate is a synthetic corticosteroid, which shows anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstriction actions. Corticosteroids act by the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, which control the biosynthesis of potent mediators such as prostaglandins & leukotrienes.



    Soneta Cream: Each gram cream contains Mometasone Furoate USP 1 mg.
    Soneta Ointment: Each gram ointment contains Mometasone Furoate USP 1 mg.
