|Description||Nilvadipine is a potent calcium channel blocker with an IC50 of 0.03 nM.|
Nilvadipine strongly inhibits the chemotaxis of interleukin-1 (IL-1), leukotriene B4 (LTB4), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) with IC50 of 0.1 nM in rat aortic smooth muscle cells (SMC).  Nilvadipine is reported to increase renal blood flow and reduce filtration fraction in the isolated perfused hydronephrotic kidney, suggesting indirectly afferent and efferent arteriolar vasodilation. 
|In vivo||Nilvadipine preserves retinal morphology and electroretinogram responses in RCS rats during the initial stage of retinal degeneration. Nilvadipine significantly enhances rhodopsin kinase and alphaA-crystallin expression and suppression of caspase 1 and 2 expression in the retina of RCS rats.  Nilvadipine completely inhibits the vasoactivity elicited by Abeta in rat aortae and in human middle cerebral arteries. Nilvadipine restores cortical perfusion levels in Tg APPsw to values similar to those observed in control littermates without notably affecting the CBF of control mice.  Nilvadipine suppresses ischemia (20 min)-reflow (20 min)-induced paw edema of mice (ED30:0.4 mg/kg i.v. and 2 mg/kg p.o.). Nilvadipine suppresses carrageenan-induced paw edema (ED30:15 mg/kg in rats and 20 mg/kg in mice) at a potency corresponding to that of an anti-inflammatory drug, ibuprofen. Nifedipine, nicardipine and nimodipine results in a suppression of 30% only with 100 mg/kg oral dosing in rats. Nilvadipine inhibits superoxide radical (O-2production from xanthine oxidase (XOD) both with lactate dehydrogenase + NADH method and cytochrome c method (IC50:90 and 100 mg/mL, respectively). |

* 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.
