ated to cutaneous T-cell lymphoma when other treatments have not been effective. It is a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, the first in a class of drugs that regulate enzymes involved in cell signaling. Vorinostat is also being investigated as a treatment option for a range of other solid and hematologic malignancies.

The researchers looked at safety and tolerability data from patients in phase I and II Merck-sponsored clinical trials who received vorinostat as a single (monotherapy) or combination therapy for a variety of cancers. Data from these unblinded trials showed that vorinostat has an acceptable safety and tolerability profile when given as monotherapy, or more commonly in a combination regimen, for patients with refractory metastatic cancer.

Denileukin diftitox shows promise for newly diagnosed T-cell lymphoma patients (the CONCEPT trial). (Abstract number 8045; poster session, June 4, 5:00 6:00 p.m.)

As part of the multicenter CONCEPT trial, Dr. Goy tested the efficacy and safety of denileukin diftitox, a genetically engineered fusion protein that targets cancers that express the interleukin-2 receptor. The drug was tested head-to-head against the standard "CHOP" (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisolone) chemotherapy regimen in a Phase II study in which the patients receiving the new drug were also treated with CHOP. The study group consisted of patients newly diagnosed with aggressive T-cell lymphomas. Researchers found the combination therapy effective, with a 68% overall response rate and 57% complete response rate. As a result, they are starting a multicenter comparison study.
