Biological Activity

(-)-Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) inhibits activation EGFR, HER2 and HER3 in the SW837 human colon cancer cell line. (-)-Epigallocatechin Gallate (10 μM) also inhibits cell growth, suppresses activation of EGFR, HER2, and HER3, and causes decrease in the levels of COX-2 and Bcl-xL proteins, and apoptosis after treatment for 96 h. In vivo, (-)-Epigallocatechin Gallate (5, 10, and 20 mg/kg, p.o.) inhibits the growth of orthotopic colorectal cancer cells in 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.
