Teicoplanin is an antibiotic used in the prophylaxis and treatment of serious infections. Teicoplanin is a semisynthetic glycopeptide antibiotic with a spectrum of activity similar to vancomycin. Teicoplanin is effective against Gram-positive bacteria resistant to β-lactam antibiotics. Its mechanism of action is to inhibit bacterial cell wall synthesis.

|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.
