|Description||Fluorometholone Acetate is a synthetic corticosteroid, used in the treatment of steroid responsive inflammatory conditions of the eye.|
Fluorometholone Acetate is a synthetic corticosteroid, used in the treatment of steroid responsive inflammatory conditions of the eye. 
|In vivo||Hourly topical administration of the drug suspension produces an average reduction of 46.8% in the polymorphonuclear leukocytes invading the corneal stroma. In the cornea, fluorometholone acetate appears to have a greater efficacy, as compared to fluorometholone alcohol, for reducing the number of leukocytes invading that tissue following an inflammatory stimulus. Animal toxicity studies of fluorometholone, including acute intraperitoneal LD50s in mice and rats, subacute oral toxicity in rats and dogs, and subacute topical ocular toxicity in rabbits have demonstrated the safety of this drug for human use. |

* 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.
