General description

7-Isopropoxy-3-phenyl-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one (Ipriflavone), a synthetic flavonoid, is reported to stimulate the activity of osteoblasts. It is reported to promote the deposition of calcium and the formation of mineralized nodules by newborn rat calvarial osteoblast-like (ROB) cells as well as the activity of alkaline phosphatase. Ipriflavone, an isoflavone derivative, is a new drug used to decrease bone loss in osteoporosis.


7-Isopropoxy-3-phenyl-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one (Ipriflavone) has been used as a model drug in a study to functionalize the mesoporous bioactive glasses (MBG). Study suggested that since ipriflavone is a hydrophobic anti-osteoporotic drug, it easily attaches to the surface of MBG and results in long-term drug delivery.

Ipriflavone (7-isopropoxy-isoflavone) is a semisynthetic isoflavone derivative from daidzein and prescribed to prevent and treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. In the present study, ipriflavone was investigated with regard to their cytotoxic and mutagenic effects using the micronucleus assay (MN) in...

Mesoporous bioactive glasses (MBGs) associated with an anti-osteoporotic drug (ipriflavone) have been prepared. With this aim, MBGs were functionalised with different organic groups by following a post-grafting method, thus retaining the mesoporous network of the bioactive substrates. Drug-delivery tests were...
