Decitabine is a potent DNA methyltransferase inhibitor with IC50 of 438 nM and 4.38 nM in HL-60 and KG1a cells, respectively. Decitabine is a hypomethylating agent. It hypomethylates DNA by inhibiting DNA methyltransferase. The DNA methyltransferase inhibitor Decitabine is able to reactivate genes silenced by DNA methylation and has been shown to be a very potent epigenetic compound in several hematological malignancies. Decitabine exhibits high antineoplastic activity against anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare CD30 positive non-Hodgkin lymphoma of T-cell origin. The combination of Decitabine with TSA or depsi produced a greater inhibition of growth and DNA synthesis and a greater loss of clonogenicity than either agent alone. Decitabine is highly efficient against ALCL and warrants further clinical evaluation for future therapeutic use. In clinical trials, Decitabine was demonstrated to be an active antileukemic agent.

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.
