Corn oil, extracted from the germ of corn, can be used as a carrier for drug molecules.

In Vivo

Corn oil-gavaged rats have 54% lower serum growth hormone (GH) levels, and replacement of GH into corn oil-gavaged rats by osmotic minipump infusion increase in situ MNCL cell proliferation to rates observed in water-gavaged animals[1].
Corn oil is commonly used as a feed additive or a delivery vehicle for lipophilic substances In an animal research setting[3].
Corn oil can become contaminated and cause death/systemic infections several days after IP injections, so corn oil should be aliquoted and frozen (recommendation); thaw and make fresh solution each time.
Corn oil is more recommended for gavage administration[4].
Intraperitoneal oil application causes local inflammation with depletion of resident peritoneal macrophages[5].

MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Model: Female C57BL/6J mice (n = 90; age, 6 to 7 wk)[3]
Dosage: 0.1 mL.
Administration: Intraperitoneal injection every 48 h for a total of 4 injections over a 7-d period.
Result: At day 21, pharmaceutical-grade (PG) corn oil had a significantly higher pathology score compared with nonpharmaceutical-grade corn oil. No other significant differences between the corn oil groups were observed. The use of nonpharmaceutical grade corn oil did not result in adverse clinical consequences and is presumed safe to use for intraperitoneal injection in mice.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2
