row and divide. Similar KIT mutations in GIST were shown to be treated effectively by Gleevec. The preliminary data from the investigator-driven study show that five out of five patients evaluable for responses showed either partial responses to Gleevec (3 out of 5) or stable disease (2 out of 5). Responses in two of the three patients are ongoing past 18 weeks. These favorable results have allowed the study to continue to a second expanded stage of enrollment(10).

Other data on advanced melanoma include preliminary results from a Phase II trial (abstract #9027) that show 72% of patients (20 out of 28) with advanced melanoma treated with everolimus in combination with bevacizumab experienced a clinical benefit (4% had a partial response and 68% had stable disease). The combination of everolimus and bevacizumab was generally well tolerated. According to the abstract, one patient withdrew from the trial due to interstitial pneumonitis, which was reversible, and one patient had a fatal heart attack, possibly bevacizumab-related. Grade 3 mucositis occurred in 13% of patients and all other grade 3 toxicities occurred in <10% of patients(11).

Early stage development data

    • In this first Phase I clinical trial assessing the combination of panobinostat (LBH589) in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone, the 5 mg and 10 mg doses of panobinostat were safe when administered to patients with multiple myeloma(12).
