Dermacortic steroids are drugs used by the UNSC for medical purposes. They accelerate tissue regrowth following catastrophic injuries where the body has experienced severe burns or trauma. They are carried aboard most UNSC vessels and bases as a standard drug.


Kelly-087 needed dermacortic steroids following her injury by a Hunter's Assault cannon in the Forerunner caves beneath Reach in 2552.[1]
