Fasudil hydrochloride is a cyclic nucleotide-dependent Rho-associated kinase inhibitor with IC50 of 10.7 μM. The Rho-kinase (ROCK) plays an important role in mediating vasoconstriction and vascular remodeling in the pathogenesis of PH. ROCK increases ACE expression and activity in PH. By inhibiting ROCK with fasudil, circulating ACE and Ang-II are reduced, leading to a decrease in pulmonary vascular pressure, thus decreasing MLC phosphatase activity and enhancing vascular smooth muscle contraction. Fasudil effectively inhibited ISO-induced heart failure, as evaluated by biometric, hemodynamic, and histological examinations. More over, fasudil significantly decreased ISO-induced JNK activation, ERK translocation to the nucleus and subsequent c-fos, c-jun expression and upregulated c-FLIP(L) expression.

|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.
