Zileuton (trade name ZYFLO) is an orally active inhibitor of 5-lipoxygenase, and thus inhibits leukotrienes (LTB4, LTC4, LTD4, and LTE4) formation. Zileuton inhibits 5-LO from rat basophilic leukemia-1 (RBL-1) cells with an IC50 value of 0.5 µM. Zileuton inhibits antigen-induced contraction of tracheal strips in vitro (IC50 = 6 μM) and exhibits antiasthmatic activity in vivo. Zileuton also weakly inhibits CYP1A2 (Ki = 66 - 98 μM). Zileuton is used for the maintenance treatment of asthma. Research on mice suggests that Zileuton used alone or in combination with imatinib may inhibit chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).

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.
