Solubility: DMSO: ≥ 30 mg/mL


Epicatechin gallate inhibits cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) with an IC50 of 7.5 μM. IC50 & Target: IC50: 7.5 uM (COX-1)[1] In Vitro: Epicatechin gallate exhibits >95% inhibitory activity at 70 μg/mL against cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) with an IC50 of 7.5 μM[1]. In Vivo: Epicatechin gallate ((-)-Epicatechin-3-O-gallate, ECG), a component of Rhei Rhizoma, is one of the active components of Onpi-to, a herbal medicine composed of five crude drugs (Rhei Rhizome, Glycyrrhizae Radix, Ginseng Radix, Zingiberis Rhizoma and Aconiti Tuber). Following intravenous injection of Epicatechin gallate (1.0 mg/kg) in rats, the plasma concentration vs. time curve is fitted in a three compartment model. Pharmacokinetic parameters for plasma Epicatechin gallate (ECG) are measured. ECG has a t1/2α of 0.038 h, a t1/2βof 0.291 h and a t1/2γ of 4.033 h . The CLtot of ECG is 4.19 L/h • kg. The Vdss is 12.39 L/kg[2].


Animal Administration: Epicatechin gallate (ECG) is suspended in 0.5% w/v sodium carboxymethylcellulose for oral administration[2].
Epicatechin gallate is prepared in an ethanolic solution and diluted with 10% w/v sodium citrate solution to 1.0 mg/mL for intravenous injection[2].Rats[2]
Male Sprague-Dawley rats, obtained at 7 weeks of age (210-245 g) are used. Epicatechin gallate (ECG) is suspended in 0.5% w/v sodium carboxymethylcellulose at 12.5, 25.0 and 50.0 mg/10 mL for oral administration to rats at 10 mL/kg. For intravenous injection in rats at 1.0 mg/kg, an ethanolic solution of Epicatechin gallate is diluted with 10% w/v sodium citrate solution to 1.0 mg/mL; the final concentration of ethanol is 1% v/v[2].
