Biological Activity

Fluvastatin sodium is a competitive inhibitor of hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase, the enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonic acid. Fluvastatin markedly inhibits the formation of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances in iron (II)-supported peroxidation of liposomes with IC50 of 12 μM. Fluvastatin sodium inhibits vascular smooth muscle proliferation in vitro (IC50 = 70 nM) and exhibits antihypercholesterolemic and antioxidant activity in vivo. When fluvastatin was administered in a clinical trial to patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, LDL cholesterol levels were reduced by 27% after six weeks of treatment with a dose of 40 mg/kg twice a day compared to placebo. Fluvastatin sodium is antilipemic and is used to reduce plasma cholesterol levels and prevent cardiovascular disease. Fluvastatin is currently in a phase IV clinical trial in patients with Metabolic Syndrome.

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

Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B 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.
