Post hoc analysis shows that the prototypic non-peptide CRF1 receptor antagonist NBI30775 (R121919) and Verucerfont are both significantly different from vehicle, CP-316 311, and pexacerfont (P<0.001 for all comparisons collapse across time-points); the latter three treatments in turn do not differ from each other. A differential effect of treatments over time is also shown by a significant treatment×time interaction (F[20,140]=6.4, P<0.001). Accordingly, detailed Post hoc analysis shows that both NBI30775 and Verucerfont inhibit ACTH release throughout the following 6 h of measurement (P<0.001 vs vehicle at each time-point, and vs the respective pretreatment baseline)

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.
