TAS-103 has been reported to be a potent topoisomerase II poison. TAS-103 showed the strongest antitumor activity among the conventional anticancer agents for colorectal cancer (p<0.05). The combination with CDDP augmented the antitumor activity of TAS-103 (p<0.05), indicating that CDDP is one of the most potent candidates to be used in combination with TAS-103. TAS-103 may be useful in the chemotherapy of colorectal cancer. TAS-103 is a novel type of anticancer agent with a unique mechanism and could be useful as a lead compound for development of new drugs.TAS-103 will be expected to show excellent antitumor activities against a wide range of human tumors. TAS-103 showed the strongest antitumor activity among the conventional anticancer agents for colorectal cancer (p<0.05).

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.
