Background: Predicting target site drug concentrations is of key importance for rank ordering compounds before pro�ceeding to chronic pharmacodynamic models. We propose generic tumor-specific correlation-based regression equa�tions to predict tumor-to-plasma ratios (tumor-Kps) in slow- and fast-growing xenograft mouse models. Methods Disposition of 14 basic small molecules was investigated extensively in mouse plasma, tissues and tumors after a single oral dose administration. Linear cor�relation was assessed and compared between tumor-Kp and normal tissue-to-plasma ratio (tissue-Kps) separately for each tumor xenograft. The developed regression equations were validated by leave-one-out cross-validation (LOOCV) method. Result Both slow- and fast-growing tumor-Kps showed good correlation (r2 C 0.7) with majority of the normal tissue-Kps. Substantial difference was observed in the slopes of developed equations between two xenografts, which was in line with observed difference in tumor dis�tribution. The linear correlations between tumor-Kp and skin- or spleen-Kp were within the acceptable statistical criteria (LOOCV) across xenografts and the class of compounds evaluated. Since[70% of tumor-Kps from the test data sets were predicted within a factor of twofold for both slow- and fast-growing xenograft mouse models, the results validate the applicability of the developed equations across xenografts. Conclusion: Tumor-specific correlation-based regression equations were developed and their applicability was ade�quately validated across xenografts. These equations could be successfully translated to predict tumor concentrations in order to preclude experimental tumor-Kp determination.
