(E, F) Western Blot analysis of phLF isolated from (E) IPF patients or (F) donors treated for 48h with increasing concentrations of nintedanib (0.01, 0.1, 1 μM) or pirfenidone (100, 500, 1000 μM) in absence or presence of TGF-β1 (2 ng/mL). Densitometric analysis and representative blots show the effect of nintedanib and pirfenidone on collagen I (Col I) protein expression relative to β-actin as loading control (ACTB). Data are based on 8 (IPF) or 3 (donor) completely independent experiments and are given as mean ± SEM. Statistical significance between control and different concentrations of nintedanib or pirfenidone is indicated by horizontal brackets and asterisks.

|Description||Pirfenidone is an inhibitor for TGF-β production and TGF-β stimulated collagen production, reduces production of TNF-α and IL-1β, and also has anti-fibrotic and anti-inflammatory properties. Phase 3.|
Pirfenidone (< 300 μg/mL) suppresses the proinflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) by a translational mechanism in RAW264.7 cells, which is independent of activation of the mitogen-activated protain kinase (MAPK) 2, p38 MAP kinase, and c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK).  Pirfenidone (< 10 mM) leads to reduced glioma cell density in concentration-dependent manner in LN-18, T98G, LNT-229 and LN-308 cell lines. Pirfenidone (< 5 mM) reduces TGF-β bioactivity by affecting TGF-β2 mRNA expression and processing of pro-TGF-β in CCL-64 cells. Pirfenidone (< 8.3 mM) inhibits the activity of recombinant furin and downregulates the expression of MMP-11 in a dose-dependent manner in LN-308 cells. 
|In vivo||Pirfenidone (250 mg/kg) potently inhibits the production of the proinflammatory cytokines, TNF-alpha, interferon-gamma, and interleukin-6, but enhances the production of the anti-inflammatory cytokine, interleukin-10, in mice.  Pirfenidone (250 mg/kg/day) ameliorates cyclosporine-induced fibrosis by about 50% and decreases TGF-beta1 protein expression by 80% in Sprague-Dawley rats receiving a low-salt diet.  Pirfenidone (400 mg/kg/day) inhibits heat shock protein 47-positive cells and myofibroblasts, the principal cells responsible for the accumulation and deposition of extracellular matrix seen in pulmonary fibrosis in ICR mice intravenously injected with bleomycin.  Pirfenidone (0.5%, liquid diet) treatment reduces the degree of liver injury in rats, as determined by alanine aminotransferase values and necro-inflammatory score, which is associated with reduced hepatic stellate cells proliferation and collagen deposition. Pirfenidone (0.5%, liquid diet) administration downregulates dimethylnitrosamine induced transcripts levels of procollagen alpha1(I), TIMP-1 and MMP-2 by 50-60% in rats, and this is associated with a 70% reduction in collagen deposition. |

|Ethanol||37 mg/mL (199.76 mM)|
|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
2% DMSO+30% PEG 300+ddH2O
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* 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 (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
I'd like to know how to use your 50mg dose pirfenidone to make a solution for intraperitoneal injection in a mouse. Could you give me some advice?
For I.P. injection, S2907 Pirfenidone can be dissolved in 2% DMSO+30% PEG 300+ddH2O at 10 mg/ml clearly. When preparing the solution, please dissolve the compound in DMSO clearly first. Then add PEG, after they mixed well, then dilute with water.
