Abstract Text Purpose: Histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibition improves the efficacy of proteasome inhibition for multiple myeloma but adds substantial toxicity. Preclinical models suggest that the observed synergy is due to the role of HDAC6 in mediating resistance to proteasome inhibition via the aggresome/autophagy pathway of protein degradation.Experimental Design: We conducted a phase I/II trial of the HDAC6-selective inhibitor ricolinostat to define the safety, preliminary efficacy, and recommended phase II dose in combination with standard proteasome inhibitor therapy. Patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma received oral ricolinostat on days 1-5 and 8-12 of each 21-day cycle.Results: Single-agent ricolinostat therapy resulted in neither significant toxicity nor clinical responses. Combination therapy with bortezomib and dexamethasone was well-tolerated during dose escalation but led to dose-limiting diarrhea in an expansion cohort at a ricolinostat dose of 160 mg twice daily. Combination therapy at a ricolinostat dose of 160 mg daily in a second expansion cohort was well tolerated, with less severe hematologic, gastrointestinal, and constitutional toxicities compared with published data on nonselective HDAC inhibitors. The overall response rate in combination with daily ricolinostat at ≥160 mg was 37%. The response rate to combination therapy among bortezomib-refractory patients was 14%. Samples taken during therapy showed dose-dependent increases of acetylated tubulin in peripheral blood lymphocytes.Conclusions: At the recommended phase II dose of ricolinostat of 160 mg daily, the combination with bortezomib and dexamethasone is safe, well-tolerated, and active, suggesting that selective inhibition of HDAC6 is a promising approach to multiple myeloma therapy.

  • 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.
