Abstract Text Histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors have shown promise in the treatment of resistant and refractory tumors including neuroblastoma. The goal of the study was to compare the efficacy of a class III HDAC inhibitor (cambinol) to a class I and II inhibitor (vorinostat).In vitro efficacy of vorinostat and cambinol, alone or in combination with doxorubicin, was assessed by 2-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide calorimetric assay using both wild-type (WT) and doxorubicin-resistant (DoxR) SK-N-SH neuroblastoma cells. In vivo efficacy was determined using the same drug combinations in nude mice bearing xenograft implants of WT and DoxR cells on opposite flanks.Vorinostat and cambinol were efficacious against WT and DoxR neuroblastoma cells in vitro. In WT cells, the potency of the doxorubicin itself overshadowed any effect of cotherapy with vorinostat or cambinol. The effect of vorinostat and/or cambinol on the DoxR cells was constant across progressively increasing doses of doxorubicin. In the in vivo model, the efficacy of doxorubicin itself (88% reduction in tumor volume) again overshadowed any effect of cotreatment with vorinostat or cambinol on the WT tumors. However, in the DoxR tumors, doxorubicin alone had no efficacy, but cotreatment with either cambinol or vorinostat suppressed tumor growth (70% and 91% reduction in tumor volume, respectively).Both the class III HDAC inhibitor cambinol and the class I/II HDAC inhibitor vorinostat have efficacy against SK-N-SH neuroblastoma cells, including those resistant to doxorubicin.


  • 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.
