In vitro: Lu AF21934 treatment shows a dose-dependent anxiolytic-like effect in the stress-induced hyperthermia, four-plate, and marble-burying tests. The anti-hyperthermic effect of Lu AF21934 (5 mg/kg) in the SIH test is inhibited by the benzodiazepine receptor antagonist flumazenil (10 mg/kg) and is not serotonin dependent. Lu AF21934 does not produce antidepressant-like effects in the tail suspension test in mice; however, it decreases the basal locomotor activity of mice that are not habituated to activity cages. Lu AF21934 (0.5-5 mg/kg sc) does not influence tremor but at doses of 0.5 and 2.5 mg/kg reverses harmaline-induced hyperactivity. Lu AF21934 at a dose of 2.5 mg/kg potentiates the inhibitory influence of harmaline on the exploratory activity and AP1 during the first 30 min of the measurement and counteracts the harmaline-increased basic activity during the period of 30-90 min. Lu AF21934 (0.1-5 mg/kg) dose-dependently inhibits hyperactivity induced by MK-801 or amphetamine. It also antagonizes head twitches and increases frequency of spontaneous excitatory postsynaptic currents in brain slices, induced by DOI.
|Animal models||Male Albino Swiss (20–25 g) mice|
|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|
|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.
