Abstract Text KW-2478 is a novel, non-ansamycin, non-purine heat-shock protein 90 (Hsp90) inhibitor.In this phase I, multicentre study, KW-2478 was administered intravenously over 1 h at doses ranging from 14 to 176 mg m(-2) once daily on days 1-5 of a 14-day cycle in a standard 3+3 design in 27 patients (22 with multiple myeloma and 5 with non-Hodgkin lymphoma). Patients enrolled had relapsed/refractory disease previously treated with ⩾2 regimens.There were no dose-limiting toxicities, thus the maximum-tolerated dose was not reached. KW-2478 was well tolerated and did not manifest significant retinal or ocular toxicity. The most common treatment-related adverse events were diarrhoea (33.3%), fatigue (29.6%), headache (25.9%), hypertension (22.2%), nausea (14.8%), vomiting (7.4%), and dizziness (7.4%). Plasma concentrations peaked at the end of infusion and decayed in a biphasic manner with a terminal half-life of ∼6 h. Target inhibition was inferred from the increase in Hsp70 levels in peripheral blood mononuclear cells at doses ⩾71 mg m(-2). Twenty-four of 25 (96%) evaluable patients showed stable disease, with five being free of disease progression for ⩾6 months.Preliminary clinical response data were encouraging and warrant further investigation of KW-2478 in combination regimens for relapsed/refractory B-cell malignancies.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Unknown unknown multiple myeloma not applicable KW-2478 Phase I Actionable In a Phase I clinical trial, KW-2478 demonstrated safety and preliminary efficacy in patients with multiple myeloma, with 95.2% (20/21) of patients achieving stable disease (PMID: 26695442). 26695442
Unknown unknown non-Hodgkin lymphoma not applicable KW-2478 Phase I Actionable In a Phase I clinical trial, KW-2478 demonstrated safety and preliminary efficacy in patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, with 100% (4/4) of patients achieving stable disease (PMID: 26695442). 26695442
