Cerebral vasospasm occurs frequently after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) secondary to rupture of an intracranial aneurysm. The possibility that calcium entry blockers may be effective on a delayed cerebral vasospasm and the effectiveness of intrathecal administration of the calcium antagonist nifedipine and its analog nimodipine on a vasospasm has been shown from a clinical point of view. Fasudil is a class of calcium antagonists different from the calcium entry blockers.

In vitro: The inhibitory effects of fasudil on contractile responses to various agonists were examined on strips of rabbit aorta. The concentration-response curves to 5-hydroxytryptamine, prostaglandin F2alpha, histamine, angiotensin II, noradrenaline and dopamine were concentration-dependently shifted to the right in the presence of fasudil [1].

In vivo: Intra-coronary administration of fasudil to dog dose-dependently increased coronary blood flow, with no effect on mean blood pressure or heart rate. Intra-coronary infusion of atropine, diphenhydramine or propranolol did not modify the in vivo coronary vasodilator response to fasudil [1].

Clinical trial: The previous results suggested that fasudil was equally or more effective than nimodipine for the prevention of cerebral vasospasm and subsequent ischemic injury in patients undergoing surgery for SHA [2].

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 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.
