Azilsartan medoxomil is an orally administered angiotensin II receptor type 1 antagonist (blocker) used in the treatment of adults with essential hypertension. In vitro, azilsartan produced greater and more sustained AT(1) receptor binding/blockade activity than several comparator angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Azilsartan medoxomil reduces blood pressure (BP) in hypertensive adults. In adults with essential hypertension, azilsartan medoxomil 20, 40 or 80 mg effectively reduced BP over a 24-hour period with once-daily administration in three major, randomized, controlled trials in which the primary endpoints were changes from baseline in 24-hour mean systolic BP (SBP) at week 6 (two trials) or week 24, assessed by ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM).

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.
