LAQ824 is a very potent histone deacetylase inhibitor that is completing phase I clinical trial in solid and hematologic malignancies.
LAQ824 has shown impressive antileukemic activity when administered in the low nanomolar range, making it a particularly attractive candidate for clinical development.

NVP-LAQ824 is approximately 50 000-fold more potent than the HDACI butyrate and its derivatives. It inhibits multiple myeloma cell growth and prolongs survival in a murine myeloma model, without toxicity to normal marrow or peripheral blood. A phase 1 clinical trial of NVP-LAQ824 in hematologic malignancies is now ongoing at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
