CORM-3 is a water-soluble carbon monoxide-releasing molecule 1.

As a CO-releasing molecule, CORM-3 can mimic the anti-allergic and anti-anaphylactic effects of heme oxygenase through the activation of the soluble guanylyl cyclase. CORM-3 is reported to have effects on cardiovascular inflammation. It reduces PMN-induced CD54 expression on EC in an in vitro model. CORM-3 also has vasoactive properties in vitro and in vivo. It shows significant vasodilatation through acting as a regulator of vessel tone and blood pressure. Besides that, CORM-3 is also a potent antimicrobial agent. It inhibits the respiration of bacterial and yeast pathogens via increasing membrane permeability and inhibiting the terminal oxidases 1,2,3,4.

In vivo Formulation Calculator (Clear solution)

Step 1: Enter information below (Recommended: An additional animal making an allowance for loss during the experiment)

mg/kg g μL

Step 2: Enter the in vivo formulation (This is only the calculator, not formulation. Please contact us first if there is no in vivo formulation at the solubility Section.)

% DMSO % % Tween 80 % saline

Calculation results:

Working concentration: mg/ml;

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 saline, 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.
