Product Description

Biological Activity

Description Nilvadipine is a potent calcium channel blocker with an IC50 of 0.03 nM.
In vitro Nilvadipine strongly inhibits the chemotaxis of interleukin-1 (IL-1), leukotriene B4 (LTB4), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) with IC50 of 0.1 nM in rat aortic smooth muscle cells (SMC). [1] Nilvadipine is reported to increase renal blood flow and reduce filtration fraction in the isolated perfused hydronephrotic kidney, suggesting indirectly afferent and efferent arteriolar vasodilation. [2]
In vivo Nilvadipine preserves retinal morphology and electroretinogram responses in RCS rats during the initial stage of retinal degeneration. Nilvadipine significantly enhances rhodopsin kinase and alphaA-crystallin expression and suppression of caspase 1 and 2 expression in the retina of RCS rats. [3] Nilvadipine completely inhibits the vasoactivity elicited by Abeta in rat aortae and in human middle cerebral arteries. Nilvadipine restores cortical perfusion levels in Tg APPsw to values similar to those observed in control littermates without notably affecting the CBF of control mice. [4] Nilvadipine suppresses ischemia (20 min)-reflow (20 min)-induced paw edema of mice (ED30:0.4 mg/kg i.v. and 2 mg/kg p.o.). Nilvadipine suppresses carrageenan-induced paw edema (ED30:15 mg/kg in rats and 20 mg/kg in mice) at a potency corresponding to that of an anti-inflammatory drug, ibuprofen. Nifedipine, nicardipine and nimodipine results in a suppression of 30% only with 100 mg/kg oral dosing in rats. Nilvadipine inhibits superoxide radical (O-2production from xanthine oxidase (XOD) both with lactate dehydrogenase + NADH method and cytochrome c method (IC50:90 and 100 mg/mL, respectively). [5]

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.

Rat dose (mg/kg) = mouse dose (22.4 mg/kg) ×  mouse Km(3)  = 11.2 mg/kg
