12 December 2011 - US-based Syndax Pharmaceuticals Inc said on Sunday that data from its ENGAGE 501 Phase II trial showed that entinostat, a new, oral small molecule inhibitor of class I histone deacetylases, was active as a single agent in patients with relapsed or refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL).
Data showed an antitumour activity in HL patients progressing after stem cell transplantation (SCT) with bulky disease in about a third of patients within two cycles of therapy. Progression-free survival (PFS) also showed durable responses in bulky disease patients. Additionally, entinostat was well tolerated and its safety profile was consistent with previous studies allowing for future combination treatments.
