Source Pathogens 2020 Aug. Figure 5. N-acetyl-l-cysteine (Abmole Bioscience Inc, Houston, TX, USA)
Method Cell Viability Assay
Cell Lines Caco-2 cells
Concentrations 10 mM/well
Incubation Time 6 h
Results It was shown in Figure 5A that pre-incubation of Caco-2 cells with NAC for 3 h before exposure to trophozoites could block the release of Cyt-c. The activation of CASP3 was diminished by NAC in trophozoites-treated cells
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 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 Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
