ITF2357 induces apoptosis of multiple myeloma (MM) and acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) cells and this apoptosis takes place following induction of p21 and down-modulation of Bcl-2 and Mcl-1 proteins.
ITF2357 is 2-10-fold more potent than vorinostat. It has been reported in one preclinical study comparing the cytotoxic effects of ITF2357 versus vorinostat in human myeloma cell lines and freshly isolated MM samples.
