|Description||Lornoxicam is a non-steroidal COX-1/COX-2 inhibitor, used as an anti-inflammatory drug to treat pain, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.|
Lornoxicam is as effective as the opioid analgesics morphine, pethidine (meperidine) and tramadol in relieving postoperative pain following gynaecological or orthopaedic surgery, and as effective as other NSAIDs after oral surgery. Lornoxicam is also as effective as other NSAIDs in relieving symptoms of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, acute sciatica and low back pain. 
|In vivo||Lornoxicam dose relatedly reduces the total number of c-Fos-LI neurons with the strongest effect corresponding to the 75% reduction for the highest dose of 9 mg/kg, and the 45% reduction for the low dose of 0.3 mg/kg. Lornoxicam (0.1, 0.3 mg/kg, 1 mg/kg, 3 mg/kg and 9 mg/kg, i.v.) significantly reduces the number of c-Fos-LI neurons in both superficial (24%, 33%, 53%, 54%, and 63% reduction, respectively) and deep (28%, 48%, 62%, 69% and 79% reduction, respectively) laminae of the dorsal horn of the spinal cord.  Lornoxicam reduces hyperalgesia with an effective dose that provides 50% inhibition (ED50) of 0.083 mg/kg, 3.9 mg/kg and 4.3 mg/kg respectively in a chronic rat model of arthritis. Lornoxicam significantly reduces the PGE2 level in paw exudate and the cerebrospinal fluid in rats. Lornoxicam 0.16 mg/kg, celecoxib 4 mg/kg and loxoprofen 2.4 mg/kg significantly reduces hyperalgesia to a similar extent in acute oedematous rats. |

* 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.
