Sematilide (CK-1752) hydrochloride is a novel class III antiarrhythmic agent. Sematilide inhibits the rapidly activating delayed rectifier K+ current. The Ca2+-independent transient K+ and the inward rectifier K+ currents were not affected significantly by application of 100 microM sematilide. Moreover, voltage-dependent Na+ and Ca2+ currents were not affected significantly by 100 microM sematilide.
These findings indicate that sematilide selectively blocks the rapidly activating delayed rectifier K+ current in atrial myocytes and provide evidence supporting the usefulness of the drug as a class III antiarrhythmic agent. Application of 10, 30, 100 and 300 microM sematilide caused a concentration-dependent inhibition of the delayed rectifier K+ current (IC50 approx. 25 microM).

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.
