TAS-102 is an orally administered combination of trifluridine and Tipiracil hydrochloride in a molar ratio of 1:0.5. Trifluridine is the active antitumor component of TAS-102; its monophosphate form inhibits thymidylate synthase, and its triphosphate form is incorporated into DNA in tumor cells.
In vivo, TAS-102 monotherapy has a significant antitumor activity against KM12C/5-FUFU-bearing nude mice. TAS-102 can overcome acquired resistance to 5-FU because the main mechanism of TAS-102 is not associated with main metabolic enzymes of 5-FU, such as TS and OPRT. TAS-102 has demonstrated efficacy in 5-FU-refractory cancers.

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.
