Compstatinis is a 13-residue cyclic peptide, binds to complement component C3 and inhibits complement activation with IC50 of 12 μM. Compstatin features a high selectivity for human and primate C3. Compstatin completely inhibits in vivo heparin/protamine-induced complement activation without adverse effects on heart rate or systemic arterial, central venous, and pulmonary arterial pressures.
|Animal models||Juvenile baboons (P. anubis)|
|Dosages||17, 21, 34, 38.5, 50, 63.5 mg/kg|
|Administration||by bolus injection, infusion, or both|
|Body Surface Area (m2)||0.007||0.025||0.15||0.05||0.02||0.5|
|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.
|Solubility||Water ≥ 90 mg/mL|
