LY315920 (Varespladib) is a potent and selective secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA) inhibitor with IC50 of 7 nM. LY315920 inhibited sPLA2 activity with an IC50 of 9 +/- 1 nM or 7.3 x 10(-6) mole fraction, which approached the stiochiometric limit of this assay in a chromogenic isolated enzyme assay. LY315920 (Varespladib) was 40-fold less active against human, group IB, pancreatic sPLA2 and was inactive against cytosolic PLA2 and the constitutive and inducible forms of cyclooxygenase. The i.v. administration of LY315920, 5 min before harvesting the bronchoalveolar lavage cells, resulted in the inhibition of sPLA2-induced production of TXA2 with an ED50 of 16.1 mg/kg. LY315920 (Varespladib) is currently undergoing clinical evaluation and should help to define the role of sPLA2 in various inflammatory disease states.
|Animal models||Transgenic Mice Expressing Human sPLA2 Protein|
|Formulation||5% DMSO, 5% ethanol, and 30% polyethylene glycol 300 in water|
|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.
|Solubility||DMSO 75 mg/mL|
