|Description||Fexofenadine inhibits histamine H1 receptor with IC50 of 246 nM.|
Fexofenadine exhibits a potent and concentration-dependent anti-anaphylactic activity with an IC50 value of 95.5nM. Fexofenadine shows only a weak competitive antagonist behaviour for the 5-HT2A receptorsfrom rat caudal artery with pA2 of 5.2.  All four P-gp inhibitors has a strong, concentration-dependent effect on the Papp of fexofenadine in both directions in the Caco-2 cell model. The IC50 of verapamil is 8.44 mM on the P-gp-mediated secretion of Fexofenadine.  Fexofenadine causes a significant increase in the QT and Tp-e intervals and receives a significant TdP score at doses greater than 100 fold its free TPC in the rabbit left ventricular wedge preparation. 
|In vivo||Fexofenadine is excreted unchanged in the urine, bile, and gastrointestinal tract, indicating minimal metabolism in rats, making it an ideal probe to study transport processes. Coadministration of Fexofenadine with Ketoconazole increases the oral exposure of Fexofenadine by 187% in rats. In contrast, coadministration of Fexofenadine with orange juice or apple juice to rats decreases the oral exposure of Fexofenadine by 31% and 22%, respectively. Increasing the quantity of orange or apple juice administered further decreases the oral exposure of Fexofenadine, by 40% and 28%, respectively.  Biliary excretion clearance of Fexofenadine (17 ml/min/kg) accounts for almost 60% of the total body clearance (30 ml/min/kg) in mice. Knockout mice of Mdr1a/1b P-gp does not affect the biliary excretion clearance with regard to both plasma and liver concentrations, whereas the absence of P-gp causes a 6-fold increase in the plasma concentration and 3-fold higher brain-to-plasma concentration ratio after oral administration. |

1.Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2.Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
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.
