Biological Description
Chemical Properties
Storage & Solubility Information
Description Brivudine (BVDU), an antiviral medicine, is used in the therapy of herpes zoster.
In vitro Brivudine is an analog of thymidine, and is incorporated into the viral DNA. It blocks the action of DNA polymerases thereby inhibiting viral replication. It has a stronger antiviral effect against the varicella-zoster virus than reference compounds such as aciclovir or penciclovir[1]. It has high, selective activity against varicella zoster virus (VZV), inhibiting VZV replication, possibly through competitive inhibition of viral DNA polymerase, or by acting as an alternative substrate to deoxythymidine triphosphate, causing viral DNA strand breakage[2].
In vivo At a dose of 125 mg once daily, brivudine has been shown to be superior to aciclovir with respect to reducing the period of new blister production and shortening the duration of post-herpetic neuralgia[1].

Reconstitution Calculation
Molecular Weight Calculator

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box


Calculator the dilution required to prepare a stock solution

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box


Calculate the volume of solvent required to reconstitute your vial.

The reconstitution calculator allows you to quickly calculate the volume of a reagent to reconstitute your vial.
Simply enter the mass of reagent and the target concentration and the calculator will determine the rest.

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 n 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.
