LY2334737 is an orally available valproic acid ester of gemcitabine, a broad-spectrum antimetabolite with antineoplastic activity. Gemcitabine is converted into the active metabolites difluorodeoxycytidine diphosphate and triphosphate (dFdCDP and dFdCTP) by deoxycytidine kinase. dFdCDP inhibits ribonucleotide reductase, thereby decreasing the deoxynucleotide pool available for DNA replication; dFdCTP is incorporated into DNA, resulting in premature termination of DNA replication and eventually the induction of apoptosis.
In vivo: Oral treatment of xenograft models with 3.2 mg/kg LY2334737 once a day for 21 days showed greater tumor growth inhibition of CES2 transfectant than the mock transfectant (P ≤ 0.001).

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.
