Biological Activity

Forodesine hydrochloride is a potent and orally active transition-state analog inhibitor of purine nucleoside phosphorylase. Forodesine hydrochloride could induce apoptosis in leukemic cells by increasing the dGTP levels, acts as a potent human lymphocyte proliferation inhibitor. 

At a single dose of 10 mg/kg in mice, Forodesine elevates dGuo to approximately 5 μM. In the human peripheral blood lymphocyte severe combined immunodeficiency (hu-PBL-SCID) mouse model, Forodesine is effective in prolonging the life span 2-fold or more.

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 Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 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 Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
