TMC435350 (Simeprevir) is an oral HCV NS3/4A protease inhibitor. TMC435350 inhibited HCV replication in a cellular assay (subgenomic 1b replicon) with a half-maximal effective concentration (EC(50)) of 8 nM and a selectivity index of 5,875. In rats, TMC435350 was extensively distributed to the liver and intestinal tract (tissue/plasma area under the concentration-time curve ratios of >35), and the absolute bioavailability was 44% after a single oral administration. TMC435350 also displayed low in vitro clearance and high permeability, which were confirmed by in vivo pharmacokinetic studies. Data from phase I and II clinical trials of TMC-435350 (Simeprevir) have shown that TMC435350 is well tolerated as a once-daily oral therapy and provides potent antiviral activity in HCV genotype 1-infected subjects, with restoration of liver enzymes and no evidence of viral breakthrough.

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.
