|Cell lines||Two CD20-positive follicular lymphoma cell lines (DOHH-2, WSU-NHL) and one CD20-positive Burkitt's lymphoma cell line (Raji)|
|Preparation method||Samples of 1×10^6 cells/mL medium are incubated with rituximab and the various cytotoxic drugs for 24 and 48 hours.|
|Incubation time||24 and 48 hours|
|Animal models||SCID mice|
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
|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 Kmfactor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg

Rituximab is an anti-CD20 chimeric monoclonal antibody used to treat certain autoimmune diseases and types of cancer.
Rituximab inhibits the proliferation of stimulated human B cells, which is associated with a relative increase of B cells with an activated naive phenotype. Aside from this population shift, there are no major changes in phenotype or cytokine profile of the various B-cell subsets. B cells stimulated in the presence of rituximab induces stronger T-cell proliferation, compared to B cells stimulated in the absence of rituximab. All lymphoma cells tested are equally sensitive to antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC), antibody-mediated phagocytosis of tumor cells, and rituximab-induced apoptosis. Rituximab induces high CDC killing of follicular lymphoma cells.
A single injection of rituximab or the murine anti-CD20 Ab 1F5, given i.p. 1 day after the tumor, cures 100% of the animals. Depletion of either NK cells or neutrophils or both in tumor-injected animals does not affect the therapeutic activity of the drug. Similarly, rituximab is able to eradicate tumor cells in athymic nude mice, suggesting that its activity is T cell independent.
