|Description||Cefdinir is an oral cephalosporin antibiotic, used to treat bacterial infections in many different parts of the body.|
Cefdinir, a new oral 2-amino-5-thiazolyl cephalosporin, inhibits the luminol-amplified chemiluminescence (LACL) response of human neutrophils stimulated by PMA but not opsonized zymosan, in a concentration-dependent but not time-dependent manner. Cefdinir inhibits LACL generation in cell-free systems consisting of H2O2, NaI, and either horseradish peroxidase or amyeloperoxidase-containing neutrophil extract. Cefdinir impairs LACL response induced by the calcium ionophore A23187 and FMLP, and this impairment is increased in cytochalasin B-treated neutrophils. Cefdinir directly inhibits the activity of myeloperoxidase-containing neutrophil extract released into the extracellular medium during neutrophil stimulation by soluble mediators, but has no effect on that released into the phagolysosome during phagocytosis.  Cefdinir demonstrates excellent activity against a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Cefdinir is resistant to a broad variety of β-lactamases and exhibits a β-lactam stability profile generally better than those observed with cefaclor and cefuroxime. Cefdinir elimination is primarily mediated by the kidney. Cefdinir interacts with the dipeptide transporters PEPT1 and PEPT2. Cefdinir tubular reabsorption is substantial, that Cefdinir tubular secretion is inhibitable by probenecid, and that this secretion is probably mediated by the renal organic anion secretory pathway.

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.

Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
