|Product name: ||Calcium Folinate|
|Molecular Formula: ||C20H21CaN7O7,xH2O|
|Molecular Weight: ||511.5|
Calcium folinate is a white or light yellow, amorphous or crystalline, hygroscopic powder. It is sparingly soluble in water, practically insoluble in acetone and in ethanol (96 per cent). The amorphous form may produce supersaturated solutions in water.
Calcium folinate is mainly used as an antidote to folic acid antagonists such as methotrexate, pyrimethamine or trimethoprim. Also used for megaloblastic anemia caused by folic acid deficiency. When used in combination with fluorouracil, it is used to treat advanced colon cancer and rectal cancer.
