Biological Activity

Lapatinib Ditosylate is a selective and effective inhibitor of ErbB-2 and EGFR dual tyrosine kinases. ErbB-2 and EGFR dual tyrosine kinases are growth promoting factors that are over expressed in some breast cancer cell lines. Lapatinib inhibits the growth of both EGFR- and ErbB-2-overexpressing cells, whereas OSI-774 and Iressa which are EGFR selective inhibitors preferentially inhibit the growth of the EGFR-overexpressing cell lines. Research studies have reported that Lapatinib Ditosylate can inhibit breast cancer cell proliferation.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines HFF; BT474, MCF-7, N87, and CaLu-3; HN5, A-431, T47D, HB4a, and HB4a c5.2 cell lines
Preparation method In Vitro Growth Inhibition Assays For assessment of cell-based potency, cells were plated in 96-well Falcon plates (Becton Dickinson) in the growth media described above. Plating densities that resulted in logarithmic growth of vehicle-treated cells for the duration of the assay were used: HFF, 15,000 cells/cm2; BT474, MCF-7, N87, and CaLu-3, 30,000 cells/cm2; and HN5, A-431, T47D, HB4a, and HB4a c5.2, 10,000 cells/cm2. After 24 h, cells were exposed to compounds at the concentrations indicated in Fig. 2. HFF, BT474, HN5, and N87 cells were treated in low-glucose DMEM containing 5% FBS, 50 μg/ml gentamicin, and 0.3% v/v DMSO. MCF-7 cells were treated in 50% high-glucose DMEM, 50% low-glucose DMEM containing 5% FBS, 50 μg/ml gentamicin, and 0.3% v/v DMSO. T47D, A-431, and CaLu-3 cells were treated in 50% RPMI, 50% low-glucose DMEM containing 5% FBS, 50 μg/ml gentamicin, and 0.3% v/v DMSO. HB4a and HB4a c5.2 cells were treated in 50% DMEM, 50% RPMI 1640 supplemented with 5% FBS, 2.5 μg/ml hydrocortisone, 2.5 μg/ml insulin, 25 μg/ml hygromycin B, 50 μg/ml gentamicin, and 0.3% v/v DMSO. After 3 days, relative cell number was estimated using methylene blue staining. The media were removed, and 100 μl of 0.5% w/v methylene blue dissolved in 50% ethanol and 50% water were added to each well. Plates were washed by immersion in deionized water and allowed to air dry. 1% w/v n-lauroylsarcosine (100 μl) dissolved in PBS was added to each well, and plates were incubated for 30 min at room temperature. The absorbance at 620 nm was read in a Spectra (Tecan) microplate reader. Data were analyzed using curve-fitting macros written for Microsoft Excel. Concentrations with IC50 were interpolated using the method of Levenberg and Marquardt and this equation: y = Vmax × [1 − (xn/(Kn + xn))], where “K” is equal to IC50.

Animal Experiment
Animal models CD-1 nude female mice were used for HN5 human tumor xenografts, C.B-17 SCID female mice were used for BT474 human tumor xenografts
Formulation sulfo-butyl-ether-β-cyclodextrin 10% aqueous solution (CD10)
Dosages 30 or 100 mg/kg twice daily for 21 days
Administration p.o.
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

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.

Concentrations 100 mg/kg
Incubation Time 5 d
Results Again, the single agents displayed modest activity, inhibiting tumor growth, whereas the combination shrank most of the tumors, similar to the BT-474 xenograft model.

Concentrations 1 μM
Incubation Time 6, 12, and 24 h
Results To verify that both MCL-1:BIM and MCL-1:BAK complexes were disrupted by S63845, we immunoprecipitated MCL-1 complexes in lysates of the HER2-amplified breast cancer cells, HCC- 1419 and MDA-MB-453, following treatment with lapatinib, S63845 (at two concentrations of 300 nM and 1 μM), or their combination.

Cell Lines MDA-MB-361 and BT-474 cells
Concentrations 1 μM
Incubation Time 24 h
Results Importantly, since HER2 inhibitors like lapatinib block ERK signaling in HER2-amplified breast cancers, it is likely that miR-4728 only has an antagonistic effect in the presence of HER2 inhibitors, while miR-4728 likely promotes tumorigenesis in the absence of HER2 inhibition.

Method PH test

Incubation Time 1~21 days
Results No significant changes in the vaginal pH were observed between control and treated animals throughout the three phases of the estrous cycle. Even though, on the 12th d, prolonged diestrus phase in treated group animals was evidenced with the vaginal pH as compared with the control mice [fig. 3].
