IC50: 200 nM: a selective agonist of γ-Aminobutyric acid metabotropic receptor (B) (GABAB).
(±)-Baclofen, a selective agonist of GABAB, causes skeletal muscle relaxation and inhibits spasticity via triggering GABAB. (±)-Baclofen, as an active anti-craving medication, modifies animal responses to alcohol and cocaine. γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), an inhibitory neurotransmitter, acts via heteromeric ligand-gated ion channels, GABAA and GABAC, and a G protein-coupled receptor, GABAB.
In vitro: (±)-Baclofen dampened cell growth in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells in a dose-dependent manner. (±)-Baclofen also caused cell cycle arrest at G0/G1 phase without inducing cell death. Additionally, (±)-baclofen-evoked HCC cells proliferation was associated with down-regulation of the intracellular cAMP level, up-regulation of p21WAF1 protein expression and its phosphorylation level, which could be reversed by pretreatment with the GABAB antagonist, phaclofen, indicating that (±)-baclofen-evoked growth blockade was exerted in a GABAB-dependent fashion .
In vivo: The mice, subcutaneously injected with Bel-7402 cells, were given an intraperitoneal injection of (±)-baclofen 30 mg/kg every day for 30 days. Compared with the control, (±)-baclofen remarkably blocked the Bel-7402 xenograft tumor growth without causing toxic effects via measuring the relative tumor volume and the mean body weight change in (±)-baclofen-treated groups, which could make (±)-baclofen as an effective and relatively safe potential drug for the treatment of HCC .

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )
Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.
Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.
Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
3. All of the above co-solvents are available for purchase on the GlpBio website.
