Sotrastaurin is a potent and specific inhibitor of protein kinase C (PKC) with Ki at subnanomolar to low nanomolar range for a variety of PKC isotypes while selective for >200 other kinases. Sotrastaurin is an immunosuppressant that blocks early T-lymphocyte (T-cell) activation via protein kinase C inhibition. Sotrastaurin combined with EVR showed higher efficacy failure rates and some improvement in renal allograft function compared to a CsA-based therapy. Sotrastaurin inhibits nuclear factor (NF)-κB, which directly promotes the transcription of forkhead box protein 3 (FoxP3), the key regulator for the development and function of regulatory T cells (Tregs). Sotrastaurin is a potent inhibitor of alloreactivity in vitro, while it did not affect Treg function in patients after kidney transplantation. Sotrastaurin prevented TCR/CD28-induced T-cell activation and pro-inflammatory cytokine production, but preserved a stable Treg phenotype as evidenced by maintenance of suppressive capacity, high Foxp3 and CD25 expression, and lack of IL-17A and IFNγ production.

|Dosages||10 mg/kg and 30 mg/kg|
|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|

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.
