Biological Activity

Caffeic acid inhibited 5-lipoxygenase in a non-competitive manner. Caffeic acid and its methyl ester did not inhibit prostaglandin synthase activity at all, at least up to 5 X 10(-4) M, but rather stimulate at higher doses.Caffeic acid has been shown to inhibit arachidonic acid metabolism in platelets at high doses.It has been observed to stimulate prostaglandin synthesis at high doses. Caffeic acid is an inhibitor of GST, ODC, Tyk and Xanthine Oxidase.Caffeic acid inhibits the synthesis of leukotrienes that are involved in immunoregulation, inflammation and allergy.Caffeic acid inhibits Cu2+-induced LDL oxidation.

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 Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 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 Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
