In vitro: Zotarolimus (ABT-578) is a semi-synthetic analogue of rapamycin, made by substituting a tetrazole ring for the native hydroxyl group at position 42 in rapamycin. Zotarolimus is highly effective in inhibiting both smooth muscle cell and endothelial cell proliferation, with IC50 values of 2.9 nM and 2.6 nM, respectively. Zotarolimus is mechanistically similar to sirolimus in having high-affinity binding to the immunophilin FKBP12 and comparable potency for inhibiting in vitro proliferation of both human and rat T cells. Zotarolimus inhibits Con A-induced human T cells and rat T cells proliferation with IC50 of 7.0 nM and 1337 nM respectively. In vivo: Zotarolimus-eluting stents effectively reduce neointima formation in a 28-day, well-characterized swine model of coronary artery restenosis. Zotarolimus appears effective in preventing neointimal thickening, reducing late loss from 1.03 to 0.62 mm with a 47% reduction in TVF compared with bare metal stents (15.4% with the Driver stent to 8.1% with the Endeavor stent). Zotarolimus is efficacious in suppressing adjuvant DTH, EAE, and cardiac allograft rejection with ED50 values of 1.72, 1.17, and 3.71 mg/kg/day, respectively.
|Cell lines||Human coronary artery cells|
|Preparation method||Cell proliferation is assayed by measuring tritiated thymidine incorporation in vitro. Human coronary artery cells (hCa) are seeded into tissue culture flasks for expansion and applied to 96-well plates at desired density in complete media (5000 hCaSMC; 10 000 hCaEC). After 2 days, complete media is replaced with incomplete media to synchronize cells and induce G0 state. Two days later, incomplete media are removed and replaced with complete media (serum/growth factors) to induce G0 to G1 transition. Complete media also contain drug at desired concentrations to determine its effects on cell proliferation. On day 7, 3H-thymidine is added to cells to monitor DNA synthesis, and cells are harvested after overnight incorporation of radioactivity. After an incubation period of 72 h, 25 μL (1 μCi/well) of 3H-thymidine are added to each well. The cells are incubated at 37°C for 16-18 h to allow for incorporation of 3H-thymidine into newly synthesized DNA and the cells harvested onto 96-well plates containing bonded glass fibre filters . The filter plates are air-dried overnight, MicroScint-20 (25 μL) added to each filter well and counted. Drug activity is determined by the inhibition of 3H-thymidine incorporation into newly synthesized DNA relative to cells grown in complete media.|
|Incubation time||5 days|
|Animal models||Male Sprague-Dawley rats|
|Formulation||ethanol: propylene glycol: cremophor EL: D5W vehicle (20: 30: 2: 48, by volume)|
|Administration||intravenous or oral|
|Body Surface Area (m2)||0.007||0.025||0.15||0.05||0.02||0.5|
|Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by||Animal B Km|
|Animal A Km|
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.
|Solubility||100 mg/mL in DMSO|
