Description Octreotide acetate is a potent, long-acting synthetic somatostatin octapeptide analog that inhibits secretion of growth hormone.
In vivo Octreotide-treated groups show a significant reduction in the tumor volume compared to the saline group. Octreotide-PPSG (1.4 mg/kg, i.p.) shows greater antitumor effect than Octreotide-soln (100 μg/kg, i.p.). Octreotide-treatments results in significant inhibitory effect on the expression levels of SSTR2 and SSTR5 in primary HCC-bearing rats compared with the saline group. Octreotide-PPSG appears to inhibit the expression of SSTR2 and SSTR5 to a greater extent than that of Octreotide-soln treated group. A test dose of octreotide acetate significantly decreases the serum gastrin level to approximately one third of the baseline in 2 hr and the effect lasted approximately for 6 hr. On day 21, treatment with sustained-release formulation of octreotide acetatea (5 mg intramuscular, q 4 wk) is initiated.
Animal Research Octreotide (acetate) is formulated in saline.MiceThirty mice with HCC xenografts are randomLy divided into three groups: (A) Octreotide-soln group, (B) Octreotide-PPSG group, and (C) control group. Octreotide-soln group receives i.p. injection of 100 μg/kg octreotide-soln once a day and totally for consecutive 14 days. Octreotide-PPSG group receives a single subcutaneous injection of 1.4 mg/kg Octreotide-PPSG, and the injection volume is about 0.2 mL. Control group receives i.p. injection of saline once a day for consecutive 14 days. Treatment starts on the next day after injection of H22 hepatoma cell suspension and maintains for 14 days. Tumor growth is monitored by periodic caliper measurements on day 7 and day 14 post seeding. Tumor volumes (V) are calculated based on the length and width of tumor by Eq. RatTwelve male SD rats are divided into two groups, and housed in standard cages at 25°C, with free access to food and water for a week prior to the experiment. Rats are subcutaneously injected with Octreotidereotide solution (Octreotide-soln) or Octreotide-PPSG at an equivalent single dose of 20 mg/kg. The dose is determined based on the clinical dose of Octreotide-soln in human. Rats are fasted for 12 h before dosing and food is returned approximately 2 h post dosing. Blood samples are collected at predetermined time points using heparinized Eppendorf tubes. Immediately after collection, the blood samples are placed on ice until centrifuged at 3000 g for 10 min within 1 h. The plasma is collected and stored at ?20°C until analysis.

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
