Biological Activity

Adefovir Dipivoxil reduces Liver HBV DNA to <0.1 pg of viral DNA per mg of total DNA (pg/mg) in transgenic mice expressing hepatitis B virus. Adefovir Dipivoxil treatment also reduces serum HBV DNA to 3.5 log10 genomic equivalents (ge)/mL in transgenic mice expressing hepatitis B virus compared to 5.3 log10 ge/mL for the placebo control group. Adefovir Dipivoxil antiviral activity reaches near maximum viral reduction by day 10 in the liver and reaches an endpoint of liver virus inhibition at 1.0 mg/kg/day. Adefovir Dipivoxil works by blocking reverse transcriptase, an enzyme that is crucial for the hepatitis B virus (HBV) to reproduce in the body. Adefovir Dipivoxil is used for treatment of hepatitis B and herpes simplex virus infection.

Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)

Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
