In vitro: BIBW2992 is more effective than erlotinib, geﬁtinib, or lapatinib in inhibiting survival of lung cancer cell lines harboring wild-type (H1666) or L858R/T790M (NCI-H1975) EGFR. BIBW2992 is similarly effective against NSCLC lines expressing HER2 776insV (NCI-H1781) or EGFR E746_A750del (HCC827), but shows no activity toward A549 cells, which express wild-type EGFR and HER2. Afatinib enhances cytotoxicity of topotecan and mitoxantrone to SP cells, and increases the apoptosis induced by topotecan and mitoxantrone in SP cells. In vivo: In the MDA-MB-453 xenograft model, BIBW2992 (20 mg/kg, p.o.) results in dramatic tumor regression with a cumulative treated/control tumor volume ratio (T/C ratio) of 2%, and downregulation of EGFR and AKT phosphorylation. In A7, A431, FaDu, UT-SCC-14 and UT-SCC-15 xenograft models, application of BIBW 2992 (30 mg/kg, p.o.) leads to a significant prolongation of tumour growth time. In HER2-amplified xenograft medel, Afatinib (30 mg/kg, p.o.) results a markedly inhibition in tumor growth and a significant improvement in the duration of overall survival. In HER2-positive gastric cancer NCI-N87 xenograft, afatinib (25 mg/kg, p.o.) leads to dramatic tumor volume regression within 4 d and near-complete tumor resolution after 21 d of treatment.

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.
