Biological Activity

Stavudine (d4T, brand name Zerit) is an orally bioavailable nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NARTI) active against HIV. Stavudine triphosphate inhibits the HIV reverse transcriptase in vitro by competing with natural substrate, thymidine triphosphate. Stavudine also causes termination of DNA replication by incorporating into the DNA strand. In clinical studies, stavudine has excellent oral bioavailability in excess of 80%.

Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
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.
