Biological Activity

Benzyl isothiocyanate is a naturally-occurring constituent of cruciferous vegetables with antibacterial properties. Benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC) is highly effective in suppressing cancer initiation by modulating carcinogen-activating (phase I) and -detoxifying (phase II) enzymes during initiation events of tumor growth. BITC inhibits chemically induced cancer, oncogenic-driven tumor formation, and human tumor xenografts in rodent cancer models. It decreases pulmonary metastasis multiplicity and volume of 4T1 murine mammary carcinoma cells injected into the inguinal mammary fat pads of syngeneic female BALB/c mice.

Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A 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.
