Favipiravir shows anti-influenza virus activities with IC50 ranged from 0.013 to 0.48 μg/ml for the influenza A viruses, from 0.039 to 0.089 μg/ml for the influenza B viruses, and from 0.030 to 0.057 μg/ml for the influenza C viruses. In mammalian cell lines (MDCK cells, Vero cells, HEL cells, A549 cells, HeLa cells, and HEp-2 cells), Favipiravir shows no cytotoxicity at concentrations up to 1,000 μg/ml. In MDCK cells inoculated with seasonal influenza A (H1N1) viruses, Favipiravir induces lethal mutagenesis.
|Cell lines||MDCK cells, Vero cells, HEL cells, A549 cells, HeLa cells, and HEp-2 cells|
|Preparation method||The cytotoxicity of T-705 is evaluated by an assay with XTT. XTT is converted to aqueous formazan by an enzyme in MDCK cells, Vero cells, HEL cells, A549 cells, HeLa cells, and HEp-2 cells. The compounds are diluted to the appropriate concentrations (volume, 100 μl) with test medium (EMEM containing 10% FCS) in 96-well culture plates in which each well contains a concentration of 2 × 103 cells/100 μL. The test plates are incubated for 3 days at 37°C in 100% humidity and 5% CO2. After 3 days, 50 μl of the XTT reagent (1 mg/ml in FCS-free EMEM containing 5 mM phenazine methosulfate) is added, and the reaction product is assayed by measurement of the absorbance at 450 nm with a microplate reader. Cytotoxicity is expressed as the 50% cell-inhibitory concentration (CC50).|
|Incubation time||3 d|
|Animal models||Mice infected with influenza virus A/PR/8/34|
|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||31 mg/mL in DMSO|
