Disitertide (P144) prevents TGF-β1-dependent inhibition of MV1Lu proliferation in vitro and markedly reduces binding of TGF-β1 to its receptors. Disitertide blocks TGF-β1-dependent stimulation of a reporter gene under the control of human α2(I) collagen promoter.
In vivo, treatment with Disitertide at low doses causes a significant inhibition of HSC activation and a marked reduction in liver fibrosis in a rat model of chronic exposure to CCl4. A dose as low as 70 μg of the 15-mer peptide Disitertide, given to rats (300 g body weight) on alternate days, decreases fibrogenesis significantly during chronic exposure to CCl4.

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.
