|Description||Lercanidipine is a calcium channel blocker of the dihydropyridine class.|
In vitro calcium antagonistic activity of Lercanidipine is clearly related to a gradual block of calcium entry into smooth muscle cells via L-type calcium channels. lercanidipine inhibits cellular cholesteryl ester formation. At concentrations similar to those occurring in clinical practice, it may inhibit in vitro macrophage functions involved in atherogenesis and plaque stability.
|In vivo||In chronically catheterised dogs with experimental renovascular hypertension, lercanidipine decreases diastolic blood pressure in a dose-dependent manner (ED25 = 0.9 mg/kg p.o). In the same animals, long term application of lercanidipine showed permanent decrease of diastolic blood pressure indicating no tolerance of the antihypertensive effect. Lercanidipine possesses significant anticonvulsant effect. It does not affect the muscle coordination or locomotor activity in mice. In clinical studies, lercanidipine has a 24-hour antihypertensive effect and causes no significant increase in heart rate. Lercanidipine has been shown to be effective in a wide range of hypertensive patients, including mild-to-moderate hypertension, severe hypertension, the elderly, and those with isolated systolic hypertension. It is associated with a low rate of adverse events.|

* 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.
