Biological Activity

Topotecan hydrochloride (trade name Hycamtin) is a potent antineoplastic agent. It is a water soluble analog of the alkaloid camptothecin that potently inhibits DNA topoisomerase I. Topotecan hydrochloride induces rapid apoptotic death in human B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) cells with IC50 values of 33 nM and 0.28 μM, respectively. Topotecan improves survival in three mouse models of poor prognosis ALL and downregulates B-Myb and MycN expression in neuroblastoma cells. Topotecan demonstrates a broad spectrum of antitumor activity against a variety of other tumors including ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, neuroblastoma, brainstem glioma, and Ewing’s sarcoma.

Results MiR-3163 plays important roles in multidrug resistance (Table 1, Fig. 5A). Results showed that when miR-3163 was overexpressed in RCSCs, the ATPase activity of ABCG2 was significantly downregulated compared to RCSCs with Scramble (Fig. 5B).

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.
